Description

Hector Zazou - Reivax Au Bongo

In this dreamy aural movie set in an ficticious African country, imaginative French composer Hector Zazou has confronted three prominent singers/musicians from Congo (Bony Bikaye, Kanda Bongo Man and Ray Lema) with fifteen classical musicians & vocalists as well as his own electronic textures. A blueprint for Zazou’s later masterpieces such as ‘Sahara Blue’ (which featured the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Gérard Depardieu, John Cale, Khaled etc) and ‘Songs From The Cold Seas’ (with Björk & Suzanne Vega). “Reivax” is supposed to be the soundtrack for a photo-novel by Zazou and renowned photographer Xavier Lambours, who plays the title role. The photo-novel really exists: it is included in the CD booklet... Hector Zazou has released around ten albums on Crammed (including 3 with the Zazou Bikaye project).

Reviews

“A sound both primitive and hi tech, that borrows from practically every school of musical thought one could mention (African, Asian, Jazz avant garde) yet seems totally original. Imagine Meredith Monk singing Gregorian chants in an obscure alpine cathedral and you’ll get an idea... pop music for the global village” (Rockpool, USA)

“Possible clues: Roussel, Robert Wyatt, Satie, Duchamp, snatches of silent movies...” (Libération, France)
