Across languages and disparate cultures, music is the connecting bridge. Through interweaving melodic traditions, rhythms and distinct instruments, a new dialogue can be created – an open improvisation between kindred spirits. For the past four years, British-Caribbean bandleader and saxophonist Ahnansé and Colombian label head and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Michel have been building that musical bridge between their two worlds, creating a beguiling new interpretation of Colombian folk traditions, London jazz and hip-hop. The culmination of their efforts now comes in their uniquely energetic self-titled debut album, Mestizo, released on Mais Um on 5 May 2023.
