Bamba Wassoulou Groove from Mali and Arima Soul from Gipuzkoa join the 58th Jazzaldia line-up

Bamba Wassoulou Groove

The group from Mali, founded in 2013 on the initiative of the late Bamba Dembélé, has its roots in a profound and sincere African authenticity bringing its Bambara tradition swiftly into the 21st century, conveying its expression through an intense and electric play on guitars. The result is unique music, of mind-boggling intensity, with a wicked beat and intoxicating, hypnotic, torrid and sensual power, spreading irresistible joy with their spunky electric guitars, their endlessly repeated beats and their simple and catchy tunes.

Bamba Wassoulou Groove will take the place of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, who have cancelled their European tour, on 25 July at 20:00 in the Trinitate Plaza, prior to Joss Stone’s concert.

Arima Soul

Arima Soul WEB

“Arima” means “soul” in Basque, and that’s precisely what this group does: Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Funk, Jazz-Groove from the 60s and 70s, but with their sights focused on the most recent of these styles, Neo Soul. The group was created by the DJ and bass player Makala and by the singer of powerful voice, Lidia Insausti. The two were later joined by Paul San Martín on the keyboards and Gorka Gaztanbide on the drums.

Live, as well as performing their own numbers in the Basque language, they will render covers of some of the Soul greats, including Etta James, Curtis Mayfield, Marie “Queenie” Lyons, Gil Scott-Heron…

Arima Soul will replace Pere Bujosa to give a free concert at the Nauticool on 21 July at 21:00.
