Jazz à Vienne has kicked the festival off with a show for children from the Vienne area for the last 14 years. Every year sees 6000 primary school students take to the Roman Theatre's stands for an action-packed musical experience. For the one-off concert in 2015, the Amazing Keystone Big Band left its young audience awe-struck with its lively swing take on the famous Carnival of Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns. Now Jazz à Vienne has decided to explore the incredible diversity of music and dance from Africa to revisit this iconic piece of late-19th century French symphonic music. So the storyteller Soro Solo has put a brand new spin on the original tale with a new plot and fresh imaginary horizon for Florent Briqué's composition that is loosely inspired by the melodies and motifs in the Saint-Saëns piece. Using "all colour" arrangements bringing in Congolese rumba, Nigerian afrobeat, Antillean soukous and Benin salsa before venturing into hip hop through Bouba Landrille Tchouda's choreography, this colourful, shape-shifting and multi-disciplinary piece gives western ears the chance to experience traditional African music as well as being a striking way to embody the creolisation of cultures.
