Daniel Mille and the Buskaid Ensemble at the Orbit, 29 June 2016

Daniel Mille Buskaid - June 29

 

Buskaid’s upcoming collaboration with Daniel Mille marks a series of ‘firsts’ for the Soweto String Ensemble. This will be the first time the world famous orchestra plays with an accordionist, the first time they play Astor Piazzolla’s music and their first performance at the Orbit.
 
Over the years Buskaid have collaborated with some very distinguished classical musicians and they are proud to add Daniel Mille to this line-up of international artists. Daniel Mille is one of France’s most respected award-winning accordion players. Over the years he performed alongside many a star of the French chanson (Barbara, Claude Nougaro…) as well as playing and recording his own music with the “A Team” of the French jazz scene.
 
Piazzolla’s music is unlike anything else the Buskaid musicians have played before, and its irresistible tango rhythms and sensual improvisatory melodies produced smiles of delight from the young players. From the moment rehearsals started with Daniel Mille, there was the most wonderful air of excitement in the room.
 
The programme of The Orbit concert will comprise pieces composed by Astor Piazzolla featuring Daniel Mille and the Buskaid string ensemble, pieces by the Buskaid String orchestra and pieces by Daniel Mille with Stéphane Chausse on clarinet.
 
Daniel Mille and Stéphane Chausse will also perform at the Standard Bank Jazz Festival in Grahamstown on Friday 01 and Saturday 02 July.

 

Presented by the Alliance française of Johannesburg and IFAS

    Concert Charles X - From biting rap to sensual soul music

    Charles X is as old as the era he worships. 26 years old, Dales Anthony Doss, A.K.A Charles X, seems straight out of the dawn of the 90s, in the middle of hip hop's golden age (A Tribe Called Quest, Digable Planets) and of nu soul (D'Angelo, Maxwell). Except that the Californian does not settle… Read more
