Sylvain Darrifourcq All You Need To Know

Born in 1979 in Orthez (France), he makes his apprenticeship as a classical percussionist. At 15 years Old, he drives himself definitively towards drums and play in his first rock group. He discovers lately jazz music and his meeting with Daniel Humair leads him definitively to a professional pathway. Following up, he settles down in Toulouse  and got into the CNR (academy of music) where he obtains his award. In 2003, he establishes  his own group : L' Egotiste Sorel with which he makes his first record « life of Henri Brulard » (Aljama records) in tribute to  the masterpiece life of Stendhal.

   2004, will be a distinguished mark of the beginning Emile's Parisien Quartet. The group gives rise to a unique sound universe rewarded by the 2009 «Victoire du Jazz».

   After several human and musically meetings, his appealingness towards actually form of creation, push him to developp his activity out of the strictly jazz frames. That's how the Q electrical trio is born who gives to ear a free-jazz-rock where interwine some kind of  erotism trouble, past-based forces from a merciless and motionless rhythmic fullness big sounded places.

   2014, time for the DA-Festival creation, event co-managed with the double bassist and Elise Dabrowski singer. Creative music festival supported by Axel Cassel sculptor. This event has the aim to promote multiplicity forms, improvising as well as writing
   Enthusiastic by the temporality questions, space and music breaks, nowadays, he composes for  these trios :  IN BED WITH and IN LOVE WITH , he investigates  both ambitious projects MILESDAVISQUINTET! and PONEY (solo percussionist,  electronic and zither), works beside new generations composers with which he creates musical plays (Le PANTIN from Guillaume Hermen…).

   His precise, quick and creative drums game, leads him into all music experiments,  to be expected  also as a wanted sideman. Settle down in Paris since 2008, he has also the opportunity to express his wide range of music together with Michel Portal, Louis Sclavis, Marc Ducret , Tony Malaby, Bruno Chevillon, Akosh S, Andrea Parkins, Sylvain Kassap, Bojan Z , Andy Emler, Benjamin Moussay, Simon H Fell, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Claude Tchamitchian, Francesco Bearzatti…

Rudresh Mahanthappa All You Need To Know

RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA (Composer/Alto Saxophone) - Few musicians share the ability of Rudresh Mahanthappa to embody the expansive possibilities of his music with his culture. The saxophonist/composer hybridizes progressive jazz and South Indian classical music in a fluid and forward-looking form reflecting his own experience growing up a second-generation Indian-American. Just as his personal experience is never wholly lived on one side of the hyphenate or the other, his music speaks in a voice dedicated to forging a new path forward.
The current manifestations of that trajectory include his latest quintet project Bird Callswhich issued its first release in February 2015 as it undertakes an extended period of live performances. This is 21st Century tribute to Charlie Parker includes a stellar band of pianist Matt Mitchell, bassist Fran├žois Moutin, drummer Rudy Royston, and 20-year old trumpet prodigy Adam O’Farrill. The 2013 albumGamak featured guitarist David “Fuze” Fiuczynski, whose own microtonal vocabulary opened new possibilities for Mahanthappa’s compositional imagination, alongside bassist Francois Moutin and drummer Dan Weiss. The 2010 debut CD by Samdhi (ACT Music + Vision), a multi-cultural ensemble that advances Mahanthappa’s blend of jazz and Indian music with modernist electronic music, was described by JazzTimes as “a landmark convergence of styles that didn't lend itself to easy analysis… new music of this caliber hasn't been attempted before.” Other recent projects run the gamut from the cross-generational alto summit Apex featuring Bunky Green; trios MSGand Mauger; the quintet Dual Identity co-led with fellow altoist Steve Lehman; and Raw Materials, his long-running duo project with pianist Vijay Iyer. Mahanthappa also continues to partner with Pakistani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and innovative percussionist Dan Weiss in the Indo-Pak Coalition, while giants in both jazz and South Indian music have recognized his success: he was enlisted by Jack DeJohnette for the legendary drummer’s new working group, while a collaboration with the renowned Carnatic saxophonist Kadri Gopalnath resulted in Mahanthappa’s critically-acclaimed 2008 CD Kinsmen (Pi).
Hailed by the New York Times as possessing “a roving intellect and a bladelike articulation,” Mahanthappa has been awarded a Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and commissions from the Rockefeller Foundation MAP Fund, Chamber Music America and the American Composers Forum. He has been named alto saxophonist of the year in Downbeat’s International Critics Polls, Jazztimes’ Critics Polls and by the Jazz Journalists’ Association numerous times.
