Mino Cinélu & Nils Petter Molvær

Mino Cinélu & Nils Petter Molvær :: Sulamadiana

The abundance of sound images, of ethnic and historical references, is breathtaking. On the new BMG album with Nils Petter MolværMino Cinelu deliberately bows to his mentor Manu Dibango, whom he calls a sage, to the recently deceased Afrobeat master Tony Allen, and to the jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb, who has recently left us, and with whom he shared the Miles Davis experience. The sound images the duo build constantly recombine themselves creating SulaMadiana as a world within itself, waiting to be discovered. “Percussionist and trumpeter create sparkling musical conversations across disparate cultural backgrounds, recalling Miles Davis, Afrobeat, and more.”  THE GUARDIAN [UK]
