An artistic creation of a life course The duo CORDES SENSIBLES was born from a human meeting of trust between two talented musicians and artists: Nina Kibuanda and Xavier Normand. Together, they drew on the poetic repertoire of Nina Kibuanda's collections to bring out the sensitive essence of a life trajectory filled with the blues of origins, fragility and hope.
With the creation ESPRIT LIBÉRÉ, Nina Kibuanda immerses herself in her past and traces her story: from her birth in Kinshasa to the future of a young man heckled by life, others, differences; and today father and artist full of life and hope. It is intertwined with this intimate and moving story the elements of a reflection on origins, determinism, the school system, the manufacture of identities, the relationship with others, parity, the management of malaise, self-reconstruction and hope. To show that poetry is constantly in motion, Nina chooses to switch from one language to another, from her mother tongue Lingala to French.
The sound is serious, the tone is optimistic and life is poetry!
Nina Kibuanda Slammer, poet, writer, director and major player in educational success in priority neighbourhoods. He introduces in his texts, jazz, slam and poetry. Through this art, he campaigns for peace and living together!Xavier Normand's music liberates words With the complicity of the writing of bassist Xavier Normand and an electro-acoustic sound assisted by Ulrik Palud, Nina Kibuanda declaims her intimate and poetic story.
Together, they try to unite poetry (spoken word) with living music. The lyrics are linked to melodies and sound effects, and the music intertwines with the flow. Poetry proclaimed Esprit Libéré mirrors social determinism and the life course of an artist in full boiling. This show is conceived as a deeply sensitive, poetic and musical work!
