” Kemitude album is the first act of an artistic genre that I propose, to question the meaning of Human in a world divided between the loss of ethical value and the thirst for authenticity.”
AFRO-ROOT is an innovative style that opens up, well beyond the text, to the African and Afrodescendant people history in a unitary dynamic.
My intoxication of Reggae-dub, Rock guitar, Jazz harmonies, Blues notes, Rap or Slam flow… had no trouble adapting to the various rhythms, songs and sounds of my ancestral Africa… my vibrational essence. An amazing exercise in which I have fun exploring atmospheres of Mandingo, Senufo, Congo, Yoruba, Fang, Ibo, Bamileke, Akan, Swahili countries… No enough room to name them all, but in short!… sound in all its pan-African dimension. A guitar buff, I’m always torn between acoustic and electric. The saturated and the clear… Dropping here and there few crazy rock solos on pentatonic tribal guimmicks, always gives me a strange sensory effect. I like to create on the folk-guitar, ranges of Mandingo N’goni sounds, to let my famous “Mystic-guitar” hover: my signature, to bring to Afro-root its transcendental “Tribaldub” characteristics. However, I still had the biggest CHALLENGE : How to lay something simple, clear and homogeneous, out of all this complex mixture, while respecting the codes of current trends?… Anyway I did my best, creating a Renaissance atmosphere celebrating the kinship of the sacred values of ancient Egypt and contemporary “Kamit-African” traditions.
Africa, the Mother of civilization and humanity, is therefore the solution to the drifts of the planet. This, on the condition that she regains her freedom and fulfillment. I believe that the liberation of Kama and her children is a fundamental human cause for the benefit of the entire world.
Kemitude album is a first act of call to order, to our civilization under the leadership of a patriarchal rule involved in all devastating follies. An order to return to the primordial matriarchal culture. Feminism, born of the dominant patriarchal model, loses all its meaning here, enjoying a golden retreat that is worth to her by the quintessence of humanity… Here the harmonious consensus of the Feminine-Masculine-Posterity triptych, symbolic of Eternity in the Ankh cross, abolishes gender conflict, ensuring the propriety of man’s authority, in restoring the primordial power of woman.
