Thursday 28/07     PARC COUTTET

Just throw on one of Ajate's tracks and you're immediately gripped by their energetic joy. Ajate is a Japanese band led by their Fela Kuti-loving frontman John Imaeda, who takes Afrobeat and revives it with traditional Japanese festival music called "Ohayashi". The originality of Ajate's sound comes from their totally unique percussive quality achieved through their bamboo instruments equipped with microphones and effects pedals, bringing together groove and spirituality. Ajate is a "must see", one of a kind live band ready to cause euphoria on the CosmoJazz Festival stage. Not to be missed!!!
  Thursday 28/07 - 18h
