Percussion ensemble louis césar ewandé. Louis César Ewandé evokes the world of traditional Mandingo music on the disk, together with a remarkable orchestral dimension that enhances the lyricism of this music. In the middle of the eighties, the Percussion Ensemble orchestra, conducted by Louis César Ewandé, opened up the possibility of exchanges between different percussive cultures outside the commercial productions of world music. Percussion Ensemble offers a respectful blend of musical character, judicially enhanced by meticulous recording and scenic staging that favours both improvisation and sophisticated arrangements. Going beyond mere respect for musical sources, the identity of each member of the group makes for a subtle experimentation between tradition and modernity.

Signature (Supports HTML). Best Regards, Louis Cesar Ewande. I founded PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE with Mare SANOGO and Ali WAGUE in 1984. We started in a close to traditional mandingo style, then I made it evolve in a more experimental direction. The album was recorded and mixed by Christophe DUPOUY at . M - thanks to Olivier KOECHLIN - and Studio DAVOUT. Radio France Internationale gave the LP the "DEMBA CAMARA" Prize. In 2007 Philippe NASSE republished the CD along with a DVD of one of PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE concerts he filmed in 1987.
