Ooooh Roberto Fonseca … I saw him at the AB in Brussels a few years ago and I was so enthusiastic that I bought his cd the next day. This man has so much energy that it is impossible to sit still in your chair. It’s like you’re on some kind of music drug. Back then, I went to his show after seeing only one Youtube video of him playing the piano. Besides that, I had never heard of him before, so I went there without any expectations. Often these are the best experiences!
This time, on 20/11/2015, he is performing together with Fatoumata Diawara, a famous singer and actress from Mali. Expect a combination of Afro-Cuban music, jazz, soul, funk and traditional Malinese music (Wassoulou).

They are performing in the context of the 30th edition of the Hello Jazz Festival 2015 (the former Skoda Jazz Festival). Two years ago we had the chance to see Herbie Hancock at Bozar during the same festival. If you are a jazz lover, the Hello Jazz festival is something to keep in mind.
