SO THAT PEACE MAKES MORE NOISE THAN CONFLICTS
In the aftermath of the 2015 attacks, the drummer Kalid Bazi and Klaus Blasquiz, singer of Magma founded drummers for peace.
This movement embodies a message of peace in favor of humanity and engages, through music and the practice of the drums, projects to strengthen the social bond in the neighborhoods and create ever more meetings around the idea of peace in our society.
Beat together to make a message of peace heard.
With Blackfoxy’s musicians, they first launched a major artistic challenge under the auspices of UNESCO : Bring together side by side the largest number of drummers, musicians, dancers, amateurs and renowned artists, in a great show captured by television : We beat for peace.
Because to beat together is to vibrate in unison on the same rhythm, to share the same movement, to create a common emotion, to experience a moment of peace and celebration with the other.
BLACKFOX, DRUMMERS FOR PEACE
An old-fashioned Soul Rap Funk line-up, made up of nine musicians brought together by founder Kalid Bazi, « Blackfoxy » is the musical peg of Drummers for Peace and is a tribute to women in poor neighborhoods.
In US slang, a Foxy Lady is a resourceful woman. The group formed around its lead singer Sista WYNDYZ, the choice of this name was dedicated to her.
Blackfoxy is a direct reference to African-American music, which has an emancipatory role and which contributes to a form of artistic excellence. This reference feeds the Drummers For Peace Movement.
