"Aly Keita is one of the grand masters of the balafon, the West African xylophone. The Ivorian musician fits the balafon in interaction with artists such as Joe Zawinul, Omar Sosa and Jan Garbarek. Together with the Swiss clarinetist Jan Galega Bronnimann and Swiss drummer Lucas Niggli Keita mixes the traditional African repertoire with Western jazz, Improvisation and African rhythms. This "Brotherhood of vibes and grooves" takes the audience on an adventurous ride.

The first element that underlies Kalo-Yele (moonlight in Bambara) is a human and affective dimension, whose origin lies many miles from Switzerland and several decades before the three musicians entered the studio. Niggli and Jan Galega Bronnimann were actually born in Cameroon and they have been friends since they were & one year old! So, they spent their youth to the sounds and rhythms of West African music."
