RAZALAZ - «JUNGLE GIVRÉE»
DOUBLE BILL performance, with JULIAN GUTIERREZ who will play right before, at 7pm.
Jungle Givrée is the eponymous concert of the new album of the funk/jazz sextet Razalaz directed by Olivier Salazar.
The skillful transitions between rhythmic passages, strong in energy and more intimate and deep moments, the symbiosis between musicians, improvised solos and the touch of humor in the stories we are told gives a contrasful show of funk/melodic jazz that charms anyone who attends it.

Initiated from his youngest age to music at the Secondary school Pierre-Laporte and at École des jeunes de l’Université de Montréal, he completed a technique in composition and jazz arrangement at Cégep de St-Laurent.
