Auditive Connection

Strasbourg, France

Auditive Connection are currently ranking high on the French jazz radar, with performances at Jazz d'Or, Jazzebre, Printemps du Jazz, Banlieues Bleues and other high profile festivals confirmed for 2015. This band excels in the deft interplay between vocalist Jeanne Barbieri, drummer Frédéric Guérin and, intriguingly, cellist Anil Eraslan, who wields this traditionally classical instrument with an true improvisers bow. Add rock elements from energetic guitarist Grégory Dargent and the result is an captivating distillation of their respective experiences.
A band that is full of surprises, across structured passages and open improvisations, the overall effect is of a strong, distinct group sound, with a dynamic that is in constant flux.
