Teun Creemers - Naamu ft. Voix du Mali

Naamu is the new band of bass guitarist Teun Creemers.

In Naamu, Creemers masterfully mixes his love for West African music with jazz and groove music, creating a unique mix that he calls "Malinke Groove Jazz". With his extensive experience as a bassist on tours for various West African musicians such as Harouna Samake and Sekou Kouyate, Creemers saw the need to delve into West African music and all its possibilities without neglecting his experiences in the Dutch jazz scene.

For this "Voix du Mali" tour, the band is joined by Kankou Kouyaté, Aminata Dante and Yacouba Sagara; three Malian singers who all appeared on the Naamu album that was released in 2023. They sing powerful stories with themes such as friendship, party and war, which combine perfectly with the raw, thunderous playing of the band.

This unique musical collaboration between some of the best musicians from the Netherlands and Mali consists of a 9-piece line-up of drums, percussion, kamale n'goni, saxophone, guitar, bass guitar and vocals. Together they create a sound that is both pure and powerful, reflecting the energy and soul of the album.

The Naamu album has been warmly received worldwide and has received only rave reviews in renowned magazines, newspapers and blogs such as Songlines (UK), Trouw (NL) and Musicmaker (NL). In addition, Naamu has been nominated for a prestigious Edison Prize in the Global category in 2023.
