Diretta Radio Octopus #animarock
Tradition and experimentation are two familiar territories that C’mon Tigre, a duo who find their identity by working with musicians from all over the world, can balance between very well. As they did for their debut album “C’mon Tigre”, they have put together a multicolored collective for their second record “Racines” and now their third album “Scenario” to be released on September 16.
Sailing from the Mediterranean basin and being guided by the fascination for Africa and the Middle East, C’mon Tigre give rise to a personal language, made up of mixtures with jazz, afrojazz, the rhythmics of hip hop, funk, club music. All without ever confining their songs to one style, but pushing the exploration as much as possible, into a dimension that every journey worthy of this name should encompass.
With the musicians we work with the exchange and experimentation continue till the end, the songs can take different directions at any time.
The result is a mixed, cosmopolitan record, which escapes from any label for the affirmation of a free attitude. The attitude that led C’mon Tigre to seek a connection with dancefloor culture, even if considered only as an evocation to revisit in a personal way.
This album wants to tell about what defines us as human beings: joy, connection, anger, sense of belonging, pain, anguish, violence, dignity. The tracks on this album are a glimpse of reality, anything but imaginative: these are tales of someone observing with stretched ears.
