Afro-jazz-rock fusion on african flutes, with belafon, kamelengoni, dundun (talking drum), tabla, piano, electric guitar, bass, vibraphone, djemba…..
Between trance-grooves, West-African polyrhythms, Zagazougou-accordion, oriental ballads and Balkan-dances flavored with jazz, Argile establishes ties within the difficult cultural environment between Africa, the Orient, and Europe.
The German newspaper “Nürnberger Nachrichten“, says, “The strengths of Argile are on the one hand its good musicians, and on the other hand its concept, which doesn’t mix European and African elements into an undefinable pabulum, but preserves the distinctiveness of both.”
In the USA, ethnomusic-specialist Michael Wall writes succinctly, “Herbie Mann meets Mamady Keita”. Sure enough, “Filefola”* Weberpals’ music reminds one of the great American flutist. But in “Kinkeliba,” Jethro Tull fans can find a song on the current album that has the potential to become a hit — like “Locomotive Breath” with just a slight African touch.
