Following JP's suggestion, the
band went to see Tania Maria in Palaiseau yesterday.
Now, I had heard lots of praise about her in the late 80s,
notably from Isabelle,
who used to sing and play drums in one of my former bands, but
I had not been enthused by what I had
heard, so I went to the concert ready to be disappointed : after all,
I've never liked latin music *that* much.
The stage layout brought the first surprise : instead of the
traditional band we had expected to see, based on her
previous work, were just a grand piano and a mammoth
percussion set. The concert itself was indeed a revelation, although not really
about Tania Maria herself.
