Benkady wishes to unite people and inspire them beyond musical borders. They bring you worldly music and dance without borders, a melting pot of African and Flemish melodies, a cross-fertilization and musical encounter of two cultures, a creative explosion. Benkady consists of Bram Felix, who washed up from Ostend, and makes the seaside relive with saxophone, flute and creative percussion. Moussa Dembele provides exciting and sometimes subdued atmosphere with african rhythms from Burkina Faso on balafon, kora and djembé. He is assisted by Siaka Deni Koita and Zouratie Kone, both griots originating from Burkina Faso, where the musical knowledge of traditional instruments like the djembé, tama and douns have been passed on for centuries. The contra bass of Lara Rosseel gives the whole a warm, sultry sound. Benkady brings, through music and dance, fun into the atmosphere. Thus, there should be a lot of dancing! Myriam Camerlynck already gives the good example on the stage!!
