This will be the second time I have brought the incomparable Raymond Boni to the UK. The first time was in a duo with the great Hamid Drake. Raymond’s music is a very special thing. Steeped in his Gitano roots but pushing outward through improvisation and more, his solo guitar performances are totally captivating. Add to this sound his haunting harmonica work which seems to wail out across the Mediterranean of his home towards Africa and you may get a taste of Boni solo. Raymond will perform at Counterflows his suiteImages for Donald Ayler a touching tribute to the great trumpeter. We are also excited to be able to show at Counterflows Christine Baudillon’s film Les Mains Bleues, an evocative portrait of Raymond.
