Full Description

PITAK

Creole Soul from Guadeloupe

Playing a set sung entirely in French-Creole, Pitak are the sound of the French-Caribbean. Combining elements of Reggae, Jazz, Soul, Samba and West African rhythms, Ines Khai's voice rises above like an eagle soaring on the warm Caribbean breeze. Her emotive songs about the struggles of life and love in Guadeloupe are illustrated by her dramatic stage presence. It is easy to see that every second of her performance comes straight from the heart, you may not understand the lyrics but you will still be taken on the journey. Daniel Muyombo's West-African Blues guitar style sits very comfortably alongside the voice of Ines underlining the cultural ancestry of the African people from Guadeloupe, mainly from the area between Senegal & The Congo.
Ines Khai's amazing vocal range is accompanied by a fabulous line-up of seasoned and diverse musicians; including one of Ireland's top bassists, Jerome Rimson (from Detroit), two Congolese musicians from Ireland's best traveled African Band (The Lace) Daniel Muyombo & Troca on electric guitar & Drum Kit respectively and Ireland's Patrick Naughton playing Djembe, percussion & shakers making up the quintet. It is testament to the quality of Ines performance that she has been able to gather such a high quality line-up as her backing band.

Ines, Jerome, Daniel, Patrick & Troca have been busy in the studio re-arranging and re-working the songs of Ines so that they can be played by a quintet and tour the country (then The World). Pitak's debut Ireland was staged at An Conair in Dingle on 8th June.

"After their 60s heyday, the rootsy French Antillean drumming traditions- Guadeloupean Gwoka and its Martiniquan cousin Bele- were swamped by the cadence and zouk crazes. Early legends such as Anzala, Eugene Mona, Velo and Esnard Boisdur either disappeared, or found occasional studio work with the new horn- and electro-based sound. But with today's renewed interest and pride of a younger Caribbean generation in Kreyol culture, language and music this unique and thrilling sound is rising from the ashes, with groups like Voudoum in Paris, and others in Gwada, Haiti and NYC. It's all the more exciting, therefore, to see an authentic and powerful Gwoka outfit -complete with soulful female vocalist- starting up in, er, Ireland! make sure you catch Pitak early -so you can say that you were there first." JOHN ARMSTRONG

"Exciting fusion of Caribbean styles with some other funky influences can't wait to hear more excellent music" STEVIE G RED FM

FeileAfrica was formed at the end of 2002 as a project to inject new life and cultural diversity into the Cork music scene, to give an Irish perspective on African culture and an African perspective on Irish culture. We have since produced many shows around the whole of Ireland

FeileAfrica is the only movement in Ireland to have such a dedicated regular program of Music from The African Diaspora touring the whole of Ireland (both sides of the border) throughout the year and featuring such a wide range of  musical styles, from the hardcore dancehall rhythms and Dakar Rap of Daara J to the cool jazzy sophistication of Virginia Rodrigues.
 
FeileAfrica also works with many artists of diverse ethnic origins that are currently living in Ireland.
