Minino Garay Trio ‘Speaking Tango’

Minino Garay · drums, voice / Cedric Hanriot · piano / Basile Rahola · double bass

With Speaking Tango, Minino Garay satisfies a passion for the Spoken Word, a form of poetry recited against a background of beats and instrumental improvisations, ancestor of slam and heir to the flashes of the Last Poets or Gil-Scott Heron. It also leads to an artistic questioning born 20 years ago. His meeting then with the poetess and singer Dana Bryant, the first heroine of the genre, was decisive. The masterful Argentinian percussionist based in France, steeped in the multicolored flavors of the rhythmic traditions of his country and the philosophy of jazz, combined with the enrichments of his transatlantic experience (Mercedes Sosa, Raul Barboza, Cuarteto Cedron, Jaime Torres, Ibrahim Maalouf, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Richard Galliano, Daniel Mille, Jackie Terrasson…) have adopted the poetic convictions of the Spoken Word. On Speaking Tango, Minino Garay makes rare words dance in a deep, tender, sensual or hallucinatory voice. He poses them, projects them, declaims them or caresses them with an unfiltered sincerity.
