Jean-Marie Machado ‘Majakka’ (FR)

Jean-Marie Machaco - piano, compositions / Jean-Charles Richard - soprano and baritone saxophones / Vincent Segal - cello / Keyvan Chemirani - percussion

Majakka… “The Lighthouse” in Finnish.
It was during a tour in the Baltic countries that Jean-Marie Machado discovered this word and its beautiful sound. The "j" is pronounced "ya" and you have to leave a very small space before the two "k" which gives it a very melodious side.
This new project is developed around melodies invented during his career as a composer, they are like lighthouses that guide and illuminate his journey until today. These songs speak of the different stages of his musical journey, of poetic daydreams, they are revealed and shared emotions.
The musicians gathered around Jean-Marie Machado represent these different moments : Vincent Ségal, met at the very beginning of the road with Naná Vasconcelos ; Keyvan Chemirani, with whom he shared the stage many times in very varied contexts ; Jean-Charles Richard, at his side for ten years in the Danzas Orchestra.
A cross music, with Latin colors which are defended by master musicians open to the world and its plural music.
