Echo chamber

Gino Sitson and his ensemble

Internationally recognised virtuoso Gino Sitson comes from Cameroon and currently lives in New York. His family belongs to a long line of musicians known under the name of Ntontas or ‘horn players’. Tropical Africa presented him with the most exuberant of muses, thanks to its rich array of rites, instrumental timbres and songs.


Gino’s very personal language makes him the natural successor to Bobby McFerrin, and continues the traditions of jazz, gospel, and the blues. His music combines the diverse vocal techniques of the sub-Saharan African traditions with ‘contemporary’ music. He is known for the great variety of intonations and timbres that brings his voices close to certain instruments (such as plucked or struck strings, the trumpet, the clarinet), as well as for playing with words and the body in a way that is free, poetic and creative. This concert’s programme echoes his last album, which enjoyed tremendous success: Echo Chamber.
