DISCOVER THE PROGRAMME OF THE JAZZ VARIATIONS FESTIVAL

Agathe Iracema

15 February: Agathe Iracema, French-Brazilian jazz singer, songwriter and composer

Agathe Iracema has music in her skin. She will captivate you with her soft and deep voice, surprise you with her ease and seduce you with her freshness and spontaneitý. Due to the profession of her father, Brazilian bass player Rubens Santana, she was inspired by the many concerts she attended during her childhood.

Encouraged by Sheila Jordan, she created her first quartet at the age of 15. From then on, she developed her musical style influenced by Sarah Vaughan, Cab Calloway, Edith Piaf and Stevie Wonder…

Chromatik

22nd February : Chromatik the Jazz/Hip-hop Français group

Composed of 6 talented and explosive musicians as well as the rapper Hi Levelz, fresh out of the show “The Voice”, the group seduces in an elegant and yet explosive way. This combination of personalities produces a beautiful recipe that is both well-rounded and structured, while allowing each talent to express itself. Just as in a jazz concert, each piece of Chromatik allows each artist their moment to shine as a virtuoso performer.

Célia Kaméni et Alfio Origlio

1 March: The singer Celia Kameni and her pianist Alfio Origlio

Célia Kaméni and Alfio Origlio invite us on a journey with a recomposition of “pop and soul songs”. Timeless hits subtly reinterpreted by the most charismatic jazz singer of her generation. Reinterpretations of songs made famous by Gregory Porter, Stevie Wonder, U2, Seal, not forgetting a moving metamorphosis of Jeanne Moreau’s indolent Blues. The arrangements are by pianist Alfio Origlio. With Brice Berrerd on double bass and Zaza Desiderio on drums, the quartet takes us into its secret musical garden.

Sly Jo

15 March: Sly Johnson (Album release March 2022)

On stage, Sly Johnson is an exceptional performer who shows great generosity, drawing the audience into his musical universe with an abrasive groove and rich music at the crossroads of hip-hop and funk…

Present on the French scene for over 20 years, Sly Johnson has multiplied his identities. First of all MC/beatboxer of the “Saïan Supa Crew”, with whom he recorded three albums rewarded by two gold discs and a Victoire de la Musique, he took his solo flight in 2010. While collaborating with artists such as Camille, Erik Truffaz, Oxmo Puccino, Raphael, Ayo, Lucky Peterson, China Moses and Jacky Terrasson, he become an established soul singer with his first album 74, followed by The Mic Buddah in 2015.
