"FRIENDS OF JEAN" - City Bum Bum Project

Genre: ethno music / ethno zene

Wojtek Peczek – djembe, Norah Mc Gettigan – tánc / dance, Johanna „Azja” Kaminska – ének / sing, Ablaye Badji – kora, sabar, tamani, Tóth Viktor - saxophone

City Boom Boom is one of Poland's most renowned West African percussion and dance schools. Wojtek Peczek, (founder of the group), will give djembe workshops and Norah Mc Gettigan will give afro-dance workshops throughout the festival. In addition, Wojtek and some of the band members will perform during Mediawave and are looking forward to collaborate with other musicians at the festival.



“Ancient sounds for the future”


Friends of Jean featuring Viktor Toth, is a fresh, new and inspiring musical collaboration whichbegan at Mediawave, Hungary in 2015. Five members of the West-African percussion group – The CBB Ensemble, (Pl/Sen/Ire), hooked up with Hungarian saxophonist, Viktor Toth, and they all just hit it off! Their music draws inspiration and energy from African soils, both East and West of the continent; Ablaye Badji's sweet, intricate melodies on the senegalese kora together with Wojtek Peczek's root sounds on djembe and percussion were born in the ancient west-african empire of Mandeng, while Toth's soulful saxophone and Kaminska's captivating vocals journey us from coast to coast, as far east as Ethiopia. Happy people and hopeful music, this project was an unexpected encounter destined to happen.
