Music has rarely made a show of such a wonderful synergy devoted to a cause that is more than ever fundamental in our troubled times. This music is beautiful, it may even be one of the most beautiful that can be imagined.

ESSENTIAL. If one had to sum up in one word the work the Black Lives collective has undertaken, it would be this one. Resolutely humanistic, this large variable-sized ensemble, gathered around bassist Reggie Washington, works indeed for the fulfilment of a dream – some may say a utopia– that is as musical as it is socially oriented. For these are indeed musicians that originate from the United States, from Africa, from the West Indies and from Europe, united by a common language in a struggle for equality and justice.

The strength of Black Lives is their ability to federate, in order to better surpass them, the energies of seasoned artists who are able to use their talent and personality to serve the group. Each one can besides take on, in turn, the role of leader by offering her/his own story, itself rich in encounters (Miles Davis, Meshell Ndegeocello, Roy Hargrove, Cassandra Wilson, Steve Coleman, Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding…).

The love story told by Black Lives is underway. We can’t wait to live it on the stage, as close as possible to the musicians and to their vibrations … With our hearts beating fast and our fists raised high !
