CELEBRATION CONCERTS – 20 years of OZMA

posted 2 years ago

To celebrate 20 years of existence in style, and to celebrate the reconstitution of its original nucleus with the return of guitarist Adrien Dennefeld alongside Stéphane Scharlé and Édouard Séro-Guillaume, OZMA invites us to an evening of retrospection through its abundant repertoire, The quintet takes center stage, reactivating OZMA Orkestrâ, its XX(L) version, essentially based on groove and the expressive intensity of improvisations dressed up in kaleidoscopic arrangements, the ideal vehicle for its incredible energy.
