Tister Ikomo, Music Of Congo - Muziek•Culture
Muziekpublique and PointCulture ULB invite you on a Congolese music travel. The 450 provinces of Congo are an endless source of traditional dances and rhythms that will fascinate Congolese dancing enthusiasts.
Tister Ikomo is a multi-skilled artist from Congo – in addition to being a dancer/choreographer, percussionist and singer, he also plays the balafon and the likembe. He has been the art director of several shows and coordinated several projects to promote dancing. He collaborated with Alain Platel and Fabrizio Cassol for the music and dance show “Coup Fatal”, a KVS and Ballet C de la B production, which already went on world tour. When in Congo, he has worked with many ballet groups, but also as a choreographer and as a musician with well-known bands.
The Muziek • Culture project offers a series of free concerts, concerts that showcase an instrument, or group of instruments, its country and its culture. In short, an invitation to travel, to discover, to adventure in a very friendly atmosphere in the heart of the Solbosch campus.
