    Yeuk Yeuk, Elhzo’s debut record, is an excursion between Jazz, Afro-Jazz and World Music.

    Recorded between Senegal and Italy, it mashes together Griot and European Jazz cultures. The percussive rhythm showcased by Elhzo’s flowing drumming blends in with a complex melodic section, highlighted by lush trumpets in constant dialogue with the counterpoint created by the tight weave of guitars and voices.

    Lyrically, Yeuk Yeuk itself is an ode to identity and acceptance. Its themes are ispired by David Diop and the Negritude poetry, and dwelve in pride for one’s roots and a renewed sense of belonging .

Track Name: Afrique Mon Afrique
Afrique mon Afrique

Afrique des fiers guerriers dans les savanes ancestrales

Afrique que chante ma grand-mère
Au bord de son fleuve lointain
Je ne t'ai jamais connue.

Mais mon regard est plein de ton sang
Ton beau sang noir à travers les champs répandu

Le sang de ta sueur
La sueur de ton travail
Le travail de l'esclavage
L'esclavage de tes enfants.

Afrique dis-moi Afrique
Est-ce donc toi ce dos qui se courbe
Et se couche sous le poids de l'humilité
Ce dos tremblant à zébrures rouges
Qui dit oui au fouet sur les routes de midi.

Alors gravement une voix me répondit
Fils impétueux cet arbre robuste et jeune

Cet arbre là-bas

Splendidement seul au milieu des fleurs

Blanches et fanées.

C'est L'Afrique ton Afrique qui repousse
Qui repousse patiemment obstinément
Et dont les fruits ont peu à peu
L’amère saveur de la liberté.
