Les Temps qui Courent
No concert is planned for now
Gabriel Bismut played the viola with Rumbatista for 2 years. This collaboration ended, after numerous concerts, with the recording of an album of which one of the songs, “Khadija”, was the subject of a very beautiful music video.
Gabriel Bismut plays regularly in the quartet of Helena Recalde, a talented bass player/singer, also a composer, who made him discover the music of her country of origin, Ecuador. In this live video, they perform a wonderful traditional song called “Vasija de Barro”.
The Big Hustle
The Big Hustle is the Funk/Rock group of bass player Sébastien Levanneur, with whom Gabriel had long played gypsy jazz with the group Ketelo Tropo. Years later, Sébastien asked him to put together a string quartet to record the parts he had composed for the first album of his group.
The collaboration with the group Lecks Inc., which was made via an advertisement on the internet, was a happy surprise for Gabriel because it allowed him to compose and record a violin part on a metal tune and thus to reconnect with his teenage loves.
Yass Dussi is a songwriter from Togo, present on the Parisian scene, and whose sincere and touching musical universe does not lack charm. At the end of 2017, he invited Gabriel Bismut to record a violin part, partly improvised at the moment, for a piece from his album entitled “On s'en sortira”.
La Mauvaise Influence
During the first lockdown, from March to May 2020, singer / guitarist Martin Manfredi asked me to write and record violin parts on his new creation, a song he wrote in the pure tradition of protest text songs. He then made an animation clip that perfectly illustrates his message. A sprawling work that must be viewed at least 20 times to understand all its references.
