First came the Parisian jam sessions, then the shared bands… All these experiences led to the same conclusion: an exceptional musical understanding. It was only natural that, a few years later, Grégory Privat (from Martinique) and Sonny Troupé (from Guadeloupe) decided to work on an original concept uniting piano and ka drum. The title tells all, two instruments lead the concert: piano and ka, nothing else! A high-speed chase emitting a bright light. A wordless exchange/interchange. The languages of ka and piano intertwine, impossible to tell which one is following the other, both responding to the other, the sonorities of jazz and gwo ka (traditional percussion from Guadeloupe) interlocking.
