Tradition and experimentation are two familiar territories that C’mon Tigre – a duo who find their identity by working with musicians from all over the world – can balance between very well. For their second record “Racines” (2019), they put together a multicolored collective. The title means “roots” in French, referring to the musical roots in which C’mon Tigre’s feet, head and heart are immersed, and from which their contaminated tracks sprout to create unusual and original sound environments. The result is a work in progress where bass and guitars interact with woodwind, synths, percussion, vibraphones, dipping the listener into a sensual and hypnotic musical journey. Sailing from the Mediterranean basin and being guided by the fascination for Africa and the Middle East, C’mon Tigre gives rise to a personal language, made up of mixtures with jazz, afrojazz, the rhythms of hip hop, funk, 70s disco. C’Mon Tigre played a stunning concert at Roskilde Festival in 2016, and we’re looking forward to having them back on Danish ground when they play at ALICE this September.
