Afrique Asie
2014-11

AfuriKo (On the Far Side, F-IRE).

Music that breathes, pulsates, bifurcates, trifles. That is unclassifiable and played with exquisite delicacy, in the course of sly improvisations. Elaborate yet sincere and spontaneous all the while. AfuriKo is an absolutely atypical duo. [ … ] I urge you to discover them and slowly enter their world.”
