OI VE / PixvaeOI VE / Pixvae OI VE / Pixvae
The Cie 4000 unveils a new crunchy album with the aim of shaking up even more the
landscape of globalized music! The gushing franco-colombian combo Pixvae is back
and we already feel the vibes of the trance coming from its new album.
Pixvae releases “Oì Vé”, a supercharged cocktail that sounds like an invitation to a
festive and mystic trip between Cali and Lyon. The magical formula stays the same:
the blast of Colombian currulao with an alloy mined from the depths of rock and jazz.
However “Oì Vé” marks an evolution within this unfettered reinterpretation of this
afro-colombian traditional music.
This new repertoire revolves around the Marimba de Chonta, central instrument of
currulao. The original French team, with the power trio Kouma and the vocal power of
Margaux Delatour, gets back with joy to the Colombian accomplices Juan Carlos
Arrechea (marimba and percussions), Israël Quinones (percussions and vocals) et
Jennifer “Xiomora” Torres (vocals).
This subtle and powerful combination grows even larger with original compositions
and lyrics that provide a new dimension to the initial energy of the band, which
initially comes from traditional repertoire… Pixvae remains an epic journey across
