Cheikh-Tidiane Seck
Cheick Tidiane Seck (Bamako/Paris - keyboards)
with his Mandingroove mix, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Salif Keita's other half when it comes to musical ideas, has created a new style of urban-enriched music that flows back across the Black Atlantic.
Daniel Moreno (New York - percussion)
a sensitive improviser, who ranks among the great names from Hancock to Ali Keita, has assimilated the rhythmic cosmos of the Black Atlantic
Ali Keita (Abidjan/Berlin - balaphone)
is considered one of the best and most creative balaphone players on the Ivory Coast
Marque Gilmore (Boston/London/Stockholm - drums/electronic) legendary drummer and founding member of "NYC's Black Rock Coalition"

The American /African partners as exponents in articulating democratic ideals globally.

This dialogue exemplifies the modern movement of musician’s from Africa and America articulating their common bond while seeking to codify the best of contemporary ideas from both cultures into a celebration of Black Atlantic unity. In so doing enforcing the democratic spirit of freedom of expression. Connect by rhythm, tonality and creative innovation, this rare gathering is supported by histories hard fought freedoms black gained through black America’s civil rights struggle, Africa’s modern conscious-ness that came out of de-colonization bringing together the special position improvisation has in expressing democratic ideals of individual freedoms through out the world.
