This is a community arts project stemming from the dance and music performance 'Kawral: The encounter'. This was a collaboration between Salia Sanou, choreographer with origins in Burkina Faso and Laurent Blondiau, trumpet player and the Mâäk collective. Kawral had a first tour in september 2016 and will play again in March 2017 at the 19th Biennale of dance in Val-de-Marne and Brussels. All work sessions of 'Souffle Rit Souffle Danse' are free and will take place in Paris. For more info and agenda, check the website of la Briqueterie.

We were invited to play in MicroMarché, Brussels during Fête de la Musique on 17th June 2011. You can now watch some impressions of that gig.
