Adjabel is a name composed of the Beninese land of Adja and the Haitian goddess of love, Label. It is a name invented by Cyril Forman who composes music that is culturally diverse, free, eclectic and contemporary. His instrument is the tambour, which he studied in his mother's country of Haiti. He came back as alias Atissou Loko, having been instructed in the knowledge of his ancestors, from a land where the tambour king draws its tradition from the cradle of Africa and the Sanba movement. Not being restrictive, Atissou's influences deliciously mix African and Caribbean influences with French songs, jazz, world music and rap, according to who is in the group at the time. This eclectic mix produced the albums Racine 1,2 and 3, which gave rise to more than a hundred concerts. The percussionist surrounds himself with fired up musicians : Peter Corser on saxophones, clarinet and conches, Jackson Télémaque on guitar, Gillian Mombo on Second tambours and Kata and sound engineer and effects, Hugo Richard. These five members constitute the core of a group that is geometrically changeable, because Adjabel is open to all kinds of collaborations. It finds its momentum in the "live", in a spontaneous fashion.

Their energy launches the audience voluntarily towards dancing, clapping and laughter. Adjabel has a lot of stage experience. The group plays regularly in several Parisian venues, but they also enjoy the often-stressed Parisian crowds in the subway. Adjabel's secret is there: always wanting to meet new faces. Every week, Châtelet subway, Saint Opportune exit, Adjabel can be heard. The atmosphere is there.

The audiences who are won over by the show, continue on their way with an energy that they weren't expecting to find in the subway. Aware that music is for everybody, including those who are struggling to make sense of their lives, Adjabel has started playing in hospitals in and around the capital, allowing the residents to play with them, to dance and to laugh. This success may go unnoticed in the press, but the group considers it to be the most valuable aspect of their work. Read more on Last.fm.
