As part of the festival: Marseille Jazz des cinq continents

Set between France and Brazil, Gildaa is the story of a woman in search of her memory.
In her kitchen, an electro-acoustic tree: a typewriter connected to a violin, connected to a kora, connected to a trombone, connected to her voice, connected to her ancestors.
a kora, plugged into a trombone, plugged into her voice, plugged into her ancestors.
Progressive rnb, French chanson and Brazilian soul, Gildaa invites us on an inner journey
where Absurd and Mystical are intimately linked.
“Gildaa is fire, and she sets it on fire. On stage, and inside you. She plays, you laugh; she sings, you cry,
she dances, we vibrate. You have to see this explosive cocktail of fever, trance, humor, sensuality and unbridled vitality.
unbridled vitality, where everything is organic. What a delicious slap in the face! Emmanuelle Bercot
