Sound design & creation for the choreography “Zen”, with Manolo and Toshiro
Production Théatre du Centaure 2014
Et si le centaure existait vraiment ?
Ce serait un jaillissement d’énergie et un subtil équilibre,
Ce serait une relation pour n’être qu’un à deux,
Ce serait un corps qui danse,
Ce serait Toshiro&Manolo.
Sound design, recording, editing, mixing: Fred Salles
Percussions: Bijan Chemirani
- Production of the LP album “Bring Back Ubuntu”
- by Sibongile Mbambo
«Sibongile Mbambo is a multi-talented artist, born in Cape-town, South Africa, who lives currently in south of France. She delivers with a very special emotion the compositions she wrote in her native idiom, the Xhosa.
Here she offers her voice to a sophisticated cross-cultural blend, her warm tone intertwined with delicate acoustic guitars, serene beats of percussion, an airy and spirited flute, or an unexpected overtone singing. A subtle and enchanting combination.”

Lamine Diagne : flute, Sax, mouth-harp, overtone singing, Duduk.
