With its roots deep in the Caribbean and with the heart of a classic jazz 4tet, Sakésho brings sophistication, spontaneity, and soulful energy to the stage - four musicians who have come together as one voice. All four are composing for the group. Mario Canonge, Michel Alibo, and Jean Philippe Fanfant are masters of the traditional music of Martinique and Guadeloupe, add to that the spice of Andy Narell’s steel pans, and you have a unique blend of jazz and groove. Like their name says – ‘It’s gonna be hot!’
Sakésho recorded two albums for Heads Up International – the self titled ‘Sakésho – It’s Gonna Be Hot,’ and ‘We Want You to Say,’ and has played concerts and festivals throughout the USA, Europe, and the Caribbean.

Line up:
Andy Narell - Steel Pan, Mario Canonge – p; Michel Alibo – e-bass;
Jean-Philippe Fanfant – dm
With guest: Paquito D’Rivera
