Jacques Schwartz-Bart is a saxophonist born of a Guadeloupean mother and a Jewish-Polish father. His music brings Ka and jazz together. It is known as Gwo ka, using a percussion instrument originally made from the large barrels used to salt the fish and has become a completely independent musical style. Accompanied by Lionel Loueke on guitar, and percussionists Olivier Juste and Sony Troupé along with prestigious Caribbean guests such as Admiral T, Jacob Desvarieux of Kassav, he plays a very powerful type of music with a definite Caribbean influence. Jacques Schwartz-Bart will give a show on Saturday May 26th.
