Cassis Jazz Festival: Sarah Lenka

Cassis - Jazz - swing - blues - Le 24 août à 20h30

Cassis Jazz Festival offers you an exceptional concert.

SARAH LENKA - tribute to Bessie Smith.

With its sensitivity, Sarah Lenka has always approached the song as a way to release the emotions that cross. That's what makes touching, is what makes her sister of the Bessie Smith, who wasn't afraid of anything and burned life at both ends. "I like Bessie Smith for his rawness, his stories raw, his texts recounting the daily, and for her singing without artifice, who cares of elegance or sophistication of notes to get to the point, and the message of life", explains that that a favorite at the dawn of its twenty years, waive the fine arts to go to London to integrate a school of music and do it, without his knowledge, the choice of jazz, upset by the tragic life of another great voice African-American, Billie Holiday. After two jazz records (Am I Blue in 2008 Hush in 2012) critically acclaimed and noticed by the public, the young singer - designated as soon as 2007 best vocal female artist of the year by the Sacem - decided to devote himself to his 3rd album, to the repertoire of Bessie. But far from wanting to stick to its model, to his banter, it addresses this directory in its own way, in a folk-blues record that allows you to rediscover the depth and the power of emotion. Frayed tone, its grain, disturbing voice and his feline sensitivity Sarah Lenka restores unvarnished full depth of these songs, which have not aged so that they tell us of the human condition, of love, of desire, timeless rest and continues to speak to us. On stage, she manages to make them his own, away from any assignment, between intimate fragility and strength of character. Changing registry compared to his albums ago, surrounded by a new team, Sarah Lenka revives the cheeky spirit and furious Bessie, as she also knows how to extract the transient melancholy and bitter irony. Around the bass of Manuel Marchès, with guitars crossed Fabien McLellan and Taofik Farah, who use the banjo or dobro to give to this directory the colors of Americana, in a folk/pop vein, she can also go back to the roots of the blues and sometimes Jazz rabble of origins, when the trumpet of Malo Mazurié and its mutes come fondle his voice. Totally rearranged by the group, cleared of their wrinkles, the songs of Bessie are under the voice of Sarah original resonance and seem to have been written for her, when she interprets them, they seem to stick to the skin.Depending on the weather, the concert could be moved into a covered room.
