Popular knowledge claims that music is an universal language, capable of overcoming any boundary between people. Underlining this popular wisdom, we enjoy what this duo has to offer us, music as an expression of sharing, a celebration of life.
On the one hand, we have Mû Mbana from Guinea Bissau. This charismatic poet, musician and singer of a wide vocal range plays a variety of instruments from guitar to Simbi. On the other hand, Russian-born Sasha Agranov is a versatile cellist who grew up and studied in Israel and who has since continued to travel. He weaves a sonoric landscape drawing from his origins, early music, and free experimental sounds.

Both musicians of extensive knowledge and mastery of their respective traditions, they harbor an exquisite passion for innovation and a wide, pluralistic vision of their creativity. These two complementary figures were destined to meet. Through them, a kind, sensual and embracing universe of sound unravels, where strings and vocal chords seamlessly give and take the lead.

The different textures offered by the bowed strings of the cello and plucked strings of the Simbi fit together in a natural way, creating the perfect bedding upon which the voice sings songs of great spiritual intensity … changing from saturated and suffocating, to light and relaxed, to intense and accelerated. As in life itself.

It is with such musicians as Mû and Sasha that we are able to move into a different sphere than the usual, a sphere which beckons us to listen attentively, to hold our breath, and above all, to feel … as their music resounds in our bodies and shakes our souls.
