Lo'Jo — 310 Lunes
∩•∩ Hudba na tomto dvojalbu (92:14 min.) je dobrodružná, napínavá, filmová a bezstarostná. Je uspořádána podle Renaud–Gabriel Piona s hosty včetně Magic Malik, Roswell Rudd, Archie Shepp, Erik Truffaz a Hasan Yarimdunia. "Pravděpodobně jedna z nejlepších živých kapel na světě právě teď" (The Independent, UK). Lo'Jo nikdy nebyla kapelou, která se snadno vejde do norem hudebního průmyslu a raději soustředila svou tvůrčí a organizační energii do excentrických a náročných akcí, jako je Festival v poušti, Shromáždění Touaregů, Afrických a mezinárodních hudebníků, která se koná každoročně v oblasti jižní Saharské pouště. Stále je to hudba s širokým prostorem, kořením a neobvyklými variacemi. LO'JO arrive couvert de voyages, en route pour tous les chemins, les interstices, dans le parfum des capitales, dans le son de la pluie sous le chapiteau d'un vieux cirque tchèque ou bien derrière un feu de la pleine lune entrer dans l'univers de LO'JO. Zdá se, že se stále více a více identifikuje francouzsky. Jejich mix šansonu, funk, dub / reggae, hudby severozápadní Afriky, zvuky a doteky hudby Gypsy představuje upřímný zvukový portrét polyglota země, kde většina populace (56%) tvrdí, že má zahraniční původ. Je neuvěřitelné, že je to už čtvrtstoletí od chvíle, co básník Denis Péan založil první podobu Lo'Jo jako trio v Angers, provinčním hlavním městě regionu Loire.

∩•∩ The first disc of 310 Lunes, the new 2–CD instrumental album from veteran French globalistas Lo’Jo, is a dream of sorts: silent pictures of an odd exhibit, impressionistic scenes, human voices heard emanating from reeds and embouchures, letting brass and wood speak: clarinets, saxophones, tuba, trumpet, flute, bassoon, trombone.
∩•∩ 310 is the number of moons that have elapsed since Lo’Jo’s inception. The International Courabou, recorded in 1989 but only released privately, opens a window onto those initial dreams: the prelude to an epic journey into melodic territories through fireworks of lyrics and possibilities. Now, for the first time in almost 25 years, the album is available again as Disc 2. “We were four kids raised in the trade,” says Lo’Jo, “roaming Europe for the first time in 1988, when Poland was still communist. In their trucks and trailers, the elders from Jo Bithume Cie took us right into the middle of gypsy fantasies and miseries, militias, Slavic wonders, a theatre of a new realm and the Jelenia Gora festival, where street art from all over Europe nourished our adventures.”
∩•∩ Those unusual experiences embraced a whole century of culture: jazz, American music, memories of India, harmonic whiffs of old Europe, a pinch of The Balkans, a brass band at the break of day at a circus. In addition to the two discs, 310 Lunes includes a booklet of 70 photographs of Lo’Jo by Polish photographer Bogdan Konopka.
∩•∩ Music by Lo’Jo, Arranged by Renaud–Gabriel Pion

∩ To celebrate Lo'Jo's 32 years together as a band or, to put it another way, their 310 moons, the group from Angers are releasing a landmark double album. The first CD features new instrumental versions of some of the group's most memorable tracks, arranged by Renaud–Gabriel Pion in the spirit of modern chamber music. The second is a re–release of their very first album, The International Courabou, unobtainable since its début in 1990.
Ecrit par Marie dans La médiathèque, le 19 sept 2014 |
∩ Pétris de poésie et de musique créole, cela fait plus de vingt ans que le groupe Lo’Jo trace dans le paysage musical français sa route singulière, rythmique et colorée. Ils avaient rêvé d’un album instrumental; ils l’ont fait, en l’accompagnant d’un travail photographique. Et de bonus. 310 lunes, 310 notes égrenées, 310 souffles.
∩ Pour être plus précis, 310 lunes correspond en réalité au nombre de cycles lunaires de la carrière de Lo’Jo, soit 310 multiplié par environ 27, soit 8370 jours ou 697 mois et demi si vous préférez, ou encore 23 ans. Bref nous nous perdrions en calculs imprécis et à l’Imprimerie, nous ne raffolons pas des mathématiques. Ni de l’astronomie. Nous allons garder la lune comme un symbole bienveillant qui planerait au–dessus de cette carrière entamée il y a près de 25 ans. Presque une légende qui viendrait nous être murmurée depuis les pays de l’Est.
∩ C’est sur une place de Cracovie en Pologne que débute la collaboration avec le photographe Bogdan Konopka, qui figera sur papier des instants de la carrière du groupe, qui a bourlingué au milieu de la « foule funambule ». Ce sont donc aujourd’hui 70 clichés en noir et blanc qui sont offerts dans ce coffret. Des visages, des instruments, des flous et des sourires, des répétitions, des enfants, une sieste, des danses. Un coffret en guise de boite à images, et de boite à musique bien sûr.
∩ Car 310 lunes est tout d’abord un disque, un disque instrumental qui se recentre sur les compositions en éloignant les mots de Denis Péan. Quoique, à l’écoute, il semblerait que la poésie reste tapie sous les notes suaves du quintette à vent et des cuivres. Neuf titres qui sont des réécritures, parfois éloignées du thème principal, parfois beaucoup plus fidèles; mais exit la section rythmique, alors nous vous mettons au défi d’aller retrouver chaque titre correspondant (on a facilement retrouvé « Je prends la nuit » derrière « Quelqu’un d’elle »). Alors du Lo’Jo sans mots, est-ce possible ? Oui, ça fonctionne, car la réécriture a été confiée à Renaud–Gabriel Pion, un ancien de Lo’Jo, qui connait sans faille les compositions du groupe, et les as remaniées pour les ramener à une de leur composante essentielle : le souffle. Celui qui se cache dans les respirations de la mesure, dans les plis des thèmes traditionnels, dans tous les paysages que Lo’Jo a pu tracer. Les mots, peut–être s’agit–il de les trouver nous–mêmes désormais. Des invités viennent nous y aider, eux aussi des « voyageurs du son », avec la collaboration de Magic Malik, nom incontournable de la flûte jazz, Erik Truffaz, Roswell Rudd ou encore Hasan Yarimdünia, grand clarinettiste de la musique tzigane turque.
∩ Tzigane. Oui Lo’Jo est un groupe de tziganes qui est allé chercher aux quatre coins du monde des sonorités et des histoires, qui avait donc commencé avec The International Courabou, un album distribué confidentiellement à l’époque et qui faisait jusqu’ici figure de rareté. Un sacré cadeau donc, qui visait déjà cet « enchantement simple » aurait dit Christian Bobin, une contemplation nostalgique, une danse abandonnée, cherchant à tout prix le goût de la liberté. Un premier disque de huit titres déjà fascinants, qui transformera les saveurs musicales de Lo’Jo en parfums ou en douceurs. Le coffret de 310 lunes, déjà boite à musique et boite à images suivant les empreintes du groupe, se fera ainsi boite à épices, boite à encens, ou boite à trésors. Car ce qui est fragile est précieux. ∩ http://imprimerienocturne.com/
∩ The French group, Lo'Jo, brings us a new double–disc release of instrumental world jazz, Balkan delights, and impressionistic displays of musical ingenuity on 310 Lunes. Though, the second disc, The International Courabou, was originally released in 1989. ∩ At any rate, the music is adventurous, suspenseful, cinematic, and easy–going. There is a bit of North America, Europe, and the Middle East in the release. The music is arranged by Renaud–Gabriel Pion with guests including Magic Malik, Roswell Rudd, Erik Truffaz, and Hasan Yarimdunia. There are even neo–classical influences that mimic soundtracks and scores of America's early films from the 1940's and 50's. The second disc is more world fusion oriented with percussion and a contemporary rock beat. Still, there are neo–classical elements, but the vocals add another dimension to the music. As a set, the albums are dynamic and multi–dimensional with enough pizzazz to satisfy all world jazz aficionados.
∩ Lo'Jo are a group of France–based musicians, performing and recording a blend of world music with strong North African as well as French folk elements.
∩ The band was founded in 1982 in Angers by singer/keyboardist Denis Péan and Richard Bourreau (violin/kora). These two have remained central to Lo'Jo throughout their history. For several years, with a rotating cast of members, they played events locally, working with acrobats, street theatre, mime, dancers and film as part of their overall presentation. They have subsequently maintained a communal lifestyle, based in Angers.
∩ By the end of the 1980s, they were playing throughout Europe and had appeared in New York as part of an artists' collective. Including Nicholas 'Kham' Meslien (bass) and Matthieu Rousseau (drums) (later replaced by Franck Vaillant), they consolidated their line–up, and their first album, Fils de Zamal, was released in 1993. In 1995 the group added Berber singer/saxophonist Yamina Nid El Mourid and her sister, Nadia, who brought a strong North African influence to the music. In 1996, the new lineup recorded Sin Acabar, and 1997 saw them complete Mojo Radio, both with English producer Justin Adams. Upon the latter's release they found more acclaim in the world music community, getting them on the WOMAD circuit.
∩ In 1999, they journeyed to Bamako, Mali, to begin work on Bohème de Cristal. While in Mali, they became involved in the organization of the Desert Music Festival held in January 2001. They have also collaborated with a wide variety of musicians, including Tinariwen.
∩ In 2002 they released the acclaimed Au Cabaret Sauvage (originally issued in France as L'une des Siens). This was followed by a live album Ce Soir Là (2003), and a new studio album Bazar Savant (2006). In 2009 they released the album Cosmophono, and toured in the UK.
∩ It’s ironic that a band who draw the bulk of their inspiration from abroad should produce a sound that says so much about where they’re from. As the barriers around ‘fortress Europe’ get ever higher, Lo’Jo’s open–minded and outward–looking approach to music seems to make them more and more identifiably French. Their magpie mix of chanson with funk, dub/reggae, North and West African sounds and touches of Gypsy music constitutes a candid sonic portrait of a truly polyglot nation, where the majority of the population (56%) claim to have a foreign background.
∩ Incredibly, it’s nearly a quarter of a century since poet Denis Péan founded the first incarnation of Lo’Jo as a trio in Angers, the provincial capital of the Loire region. For the rest of the ’80s, the line–up fluctuated and interacted with local bohemians of all descriptions (acrobats, street theatre performers, film makers etc) becoming known locally as ‘Lo’Jo Triban’. It was 1989 before they released their first album Depuis Très Longtemps, but not until the Justin Adams–produced Mojo Radio (1998) did Lo’Jo really begin making waves outside France, joining the WOMAD global circuit, and soon gaining a wide following for their impressive live shows.
∩ By that time their basic line–up had solidified around the strident sibling harmonies of Berber–descended sisters Nadia and Yamina Nid el mourid and Péan’s mumbled poetry and keyboards. The group’s core still live and work collectively in a farmhouse given them by the mayor of Angers in return for providing local children with musical education. Another municipally inspired boost for the unlikely idealists came with twinning of their hometown with the Malian capital of Bamako. This has led to collaborations with the likes of Benin’s Gangbe Brass Band and desert blues group Tinariwen, who appeared on the albums Boheme de Cristal (2001) and Au Cabaret Sauvage (2002) respectively, as well as collaborating with Lo’Jo to establish the Festival in the Desert. Bazar Savant (2005) finds them in a slightly leaner, more groove–orientated mode, with another generous spread of guests, including Argentinean tango veteran César Stroscio, Israeli oud player Yair Dalal and Jamaican singer Bunny Dudley. Business as usual, in other words.
∩ Nomads from Angers, the children of world music, a vibrant multicultural tribe — journalists have come up with a number of colourful descriptions in their attempts to define Dénis Péan’s cosmopolitan clan. Lo’Jo have enjoyed an impressively itinerant career spanning 25 years now, but the group’s style remains as hard to pin down as ever!
∩ The Lo'Jo collective got together in 1982 in a village just outside Angers, spearheaded by a young poet by the name of Denis Péan and Richard Bourreau, a violinist friend Péan met at the Conservatoire d'Angers. The early ‘80s witnessed the formation of a host of punk and new wave bands but Péan, already keen to mark himself out from the crowd and the general zeitgeist, preferred to set up an original community–based project instead.
∩ Likening his prospective troupe to "a tree trunk waiting to be sculpted", Péan set about recruiting a group of multi–talented dancers and musicians. The troupe’s core was nevertheless instrumental with Péan himself (on bassoon, piano and vocals), Richard Zenoun (on double bass), Richard Bourreau (violin), Kanga Kamden. Over the years Lo'Jo would become a shifting formation, with various members joining and leaving the group, but the basic influences remained the same — Lo’Jo specialised in cooking up a rich "world music” melting–pot long before the term existed as a genre.
∩ Lo’Jo marked the real beginning of their career with "Musique pour l'homme en marche", a sort of ‘concert–performance’ staged at the Beaux–Arts art school in Angers in June 1984. Then the outfit, still functioning as an easy–come–easy–go collective with a constantly changing line–up, started performing regular concerts in Angers and the surrounding region.
∩ In 1987, Péan’s eclectic collective teamed up with the Compagnie Jo Bithume, a street theatre troupe from the same Maine–et–Loire region. Lo’Jo offered to create the music for the troupe’s travelling show, "Décrocher la lune", a spectacular street performance combining music, theatre and circus numbers. The two troupes set off together on an extensive tour of Europe in 1988, travelling round the continent in caravans and spending almost three years on the road.
∩ Between 1990 and 1992, Lo'Jo underwent a major series of line–up changes with Richard Zenoun quitting the group. New members rapidly filled the ranks with the arrival of Renaud Pion (saxophone), Eric Aubry (bass), the two backing singers Nadia Nid el Mourid and Crystèle Chiaudano, accordionist Guy Raimbault and guitarist Rachid Séfrioui. Meanwhile, Stéphane Barral replaced Kamga Kamden on bass (who had himself been drafted in to replace Bruno Baudry before him).
∩ Leaving street theatre behind, Lo’Jo went on to orient themselves towards a more purely musical form of expression. And in 1993, their debut album, "Fils de Zamal", was released on the Fnac Music label. In another minor line–up change, Méphisto was drafted in to replace Renaud Pion on sax.
∩ In 1994, the group went on to stage their "Triban de Lo'jo" show at Le Nouveau Théâtre in Angers. This show found the group branching out into other artistic domains and combining elements of dance, circus and art in their work. This show was to be one of numerous collaborations with ZUR (Zone Utopiquement Reconsitutée), a collective of artists whose aim was to incorporate artworks into music and cinema.
∩ In 1995, Stéphane Barral, Méphisto and Rachid Séfrioui quit the group and Yamina Nid el Mourid was brought in to replace Crystèle Chiaudano on backing vocals.
∩ 1996: "Sin acabar"
∩ 1996 saw the release of "Sin acabar", an album which Lo’Jo produced and financed themselves. Meanwhile, Denis Péan published his first book, "Les Passagers ordinaires du temps." The group also kept up a busy tour schedule throughout ‘96, playing dates across France, Spain, Germany and Belgium.
∩ In 1997, Lo'Jo headed off to Africa where they met a number of local groups and artists. Their most significant encounter was with the Benin Brass Band, a group they met while performing at the Festival du Théâtre des Réalités, in the Malian capital, Bamako. Péan and his travelling band also spent time with the Tuaregs, a desert tribe they would become particularly close to. The group’s experiences in the sand dunes led them to come up with the idea of creating an annual desert festival. However, before they began preparing the first edition of the " Festival au Désert", Lo'Jo went back into the studio to record a new album, "Mojo Radio." Released in 1998, the latter went down well with both music critics and fans. And its totally eclectic content confirmed the band was impossible to pin down in any existing music category.
∩ Following their album release, Lo’Jo embarked upon another hectic series of concerts, appearing at a number of major music festivals including Le Printemps de Bourges, Womad (organised in Cacéres, Spain), Les Francofolies de La Rochelle and the Womad festival organised in Seattle, in the U.S. In 1999, Lo’Jo invited the Gangbé Brass Band to tour with them on a two-month stint that took them to France, Switzerland and Canada.
∩ After another lengthy tour which literally took them to the four corners of the world, Lo’Jo released a new album entitled "Bohème de Cristal." The starring role on this new album went to the multi–talented Nid El Mourid sisters, Nadia and Yamina, not just singers but also saxophonists, photographers, DJs, percussionists, songwriters and composers. Up until this point, it had always been Denis Péan who provided vocals for the group’s poetic lyrics, but the vocal harmonies of the Maghrebin sisters added a whole new dimension to things. Thanks to the new material on "Bohème de Cristal", Lo’Jo were hailed as the hottest new discovery at the Vancouver festival that year. And they brought the house down when they performed at Le Cabaret Sauvage, in Paris, for a fortnight in May.
∩ In 2001, Denis Péan and his joyous band returned to Africa to stage the first edition of the "Festival au Désert" (9 – 11 January) in Essakane, in the middle of the Sahara desert (several hours’ drive from Timbuktu). Organised to coincide with the first full moon of the third millennium, the three–day festival gave a glimpse into Tuareg culture, featuring music, dance, local folklore, horse races and sporting games. On this occasion, Lo'Jo met the Tuareg rebel chief Mohammed Ag–Illale, a member of the group Tinariwen, who made a profound impact on Lo'Jo. Indeed, the latter invited the Tuareg group to come and play in Europe with them during the summer and the autumn of that year.
∩ 2002: "L'une des siens"
∩ A new Lo’Jo album, "L'une des siens", came out in 2002. It was re–released the following year accompanied by a DVD featuring highlights of the "Festival au Désert". ∩ This new album was largely inspired by the group’s experiences and musical encounters in Africa.
∩ In October 2003, Lo’Jo went on to release their first live album, "Ce soir–là", featuring extracts of their tour of Europe and Quebec the previous summer. At this stage of their career, spanning more than ten years at this point, Denis Péan and Richard Bourreau were the only original members of the collective left. But the group’s collective ethos remained essentially unchanged. Based on a thoroughly eclectic mix of ages, nationalities, musical influences and tastes, Lo’Jo remained committed to the idea of solidarity and exchange. Throughout their career, they have continued to perform around 80 concerts a year worldwide, frequently playing in prisons and the world’s conflict zones as well as local schools. The collective are also committed to the idea of community fun and they regularly organise the "Kabar de Lo'Jo", traditional festivities lasting three days and three nights.
∩ In 2004, in another line–up change, drummer Mathieu Rousseau quit the group and was replaced by Franck Vaillant.
∩ 2006: "Bazar savant"
∩ In 2006, Lo’Jo released a new album entitled "Bazar savant", their usual rich melting–pot of sounds, only this time with stronger rock overtones. Inspired by their incessant travelling and their encounters on the road, the album featured contributions from a number of guest stars including the desert group Tinawaren, the bandoneon–player Cesar Stroscio and the reggaeman Bunny Barrington Dudley. Lo’Jo went on to hit the road again shortly after this release, playing a series of dates across France and the U.K. At this point, Denis Péan announced the group would soon be widening their horizons. (They aim to visit Turkey, Egypt and Cambodia in the near future).
∩ In March 2007, the group’s ‘greatest hits’ album, "Tu connais Lo'jo", hit record stores. And, to mark the 25th year of their career, Lo’Jo gave a special anniversary performance at La Maroquinerie, in Paris (4 – 6 April), inviting artists such as René Lacaille and the group Tinariwen up on stage with them. In true Lo’Jo spirit, the three–day stint at La Maroquinerie included art installations and poetry readings as well as music.
∩ During the following months, Lo’Jo carried on globetrotting with a series of concerts in Algeria, the Reunion Island and Georgia. At the end of the year, the group stayed put long enough to compose twelve new numbers, which resulted in “Cosmophono”, released in March 2009. The album has a more intimate, darker atmosphere than the lush “Bazar Savant”, and a more acoustic sound. It tells the story of a planet in turmoil, and advocates fraternity and travel. It was produced by Philippe Teissier du Cros and Philippe Fruchard.
∩ Lo’Jo immediately put “Cosmophono” on tour, with a date at the Bataclan in Paris on 28 March, and was on the road in France and Britain before summer was up. The tour comprised around sixty dates, nine of them in the United Kingdom.
∩ 2010 saw the group with a bit more time on their hands to work on personal projects. Lo’Jo also often participated in intercultural projects. They performed either as a band or a threesome in France, Mali, Canada, the United States, Russia, Tunisia and Nepal, with each event providing an occasion to meet new artists. Out of the ten concerts that the band gave in 2011, seven were outside France, in places like Austria, Hungary and Lithuania.
∩ In early 2012, Lo’Jo set off for the southern hemisphere, playing in New Zealand and Australia. In June, they were billed at the Musique Métisses d’Angoulême Festival, before setting off for Georgia and the UK.
∩ 2012:"Cinema el mundo"
∩ In September, Lo’Jo marked thirty years in the trade with the release of their album "Cinema el mundo", this time produced by Jean Lamoot (Salif Keita, Bashung, etc.). Participants included the members of Malian group Tinariwen, Argentinean duo Las Hermanas Caronni, the Barbarins Fourchus from France, Menwar from Mauritius, and veteran British rock star, Robert Wyatt. Taking the group’s familiar colourful musical imagery one step further, Denis Péan’s lyrics played with words more than ever. Two Parisian concerts at the end of October gave Lo’Jo a chance to present their new album live. October 2012 © RFI Musique
