    WHAT A FEST !

    Martin Jeckelmann

    Pour beaucoup, Kassav, cest la machine danser des surprises-parties de leur jeunesse. Pour moi, Kassav, cest plutt lenfance, la bande-son des dimanche dt et la crolit de mes parents. Dans les deux cas, et puisque Montreux na pas peur des lgendes, cest un groupe mythique qui se produisait hier soir sur la scne de lAuditorium Stravinski. A lcart des phnomnes de mode, que les mdias font et dfont plus vite que les saisons, Kassav a concoct lui-mme son secret de longvit: fidle la musique traditionnelle un air populaire de carnaval mais ouvert aux influences des musiques et techniques plus contemporaines.Trente ans plus tard, en avril 2009, le groupe multi-rcompens rassemblait 65 000 personnes au Stade de France pour une date anniversaire.

    Il nempche: ils ont beau tre les inventeurs incontests dun genre musical, remplir des salles lphantesques aux quatre coins du monde et mener de front plusieurs vies (carrires solo et side projects), ces aptres du zouk gardent la fracheur des premires fois. Leur musique est ne de la fte, et elle y reste: il aura suffit de trois notes de soundcheck pour voir les attaches de presse se dhancher dans les couloirs et Dieu sait quelles ne sont pas les plus drides du milieu. Ct backstage, la pagaille est de bon aloi: on vient dapprendre quil fallait jouer une heure, quand le groupe a plutt lhabitude du double

    Entre deux interviews, la trs magntique chanteuse de Kassav, Jocelyne Broard, mexplique en plein soleil, sur la terrasse Nestl, les bases de leur philosophie: nous sommes souvent rduits une simple musique de fte. Mais faire danser nempche pas de suggrer des solutions. Nos chansons disent quen regardant les autres, on apprend les aimer. Cette qute de la Beaut

    chez les gens et dans la vie est non seulement la meilleure chose que lon ait offrir, mais cest aussi le rle trs srieux de lartiste. Un Coca zro et trois photos du lac plus tard, elle filait rejoindre ses 12 musiciens. A quelques minutes de la monte sur scne, ni trac de star, ni trucs de stress; draps dans leurs habits de lumire, ils changeaient une dernire blague avec des amis de passage.

    Seul groupe de musique antillaise laffiche des festivals de lt, les Kassav ont cette lgance simple de ceux qui nont rien prouver. En tmoigne la seule special request de leur rider minimaliste : a bottle of champagne for Jocelyneif you want a big smile. Avec ou sans les bulles, le ntre tait conquis. Salom Kiner

    For a lot of people, Kassav is what got people dancing at the surprise-parties of their teen years. For me, Kassav is more about child-hood, the soundtrack of Sundays in summer, and my parents Creole heritage. In both cases, and given how comfortable Montreux Jazz is with legends, lets agree that it was a legendary group that performed last night on the stage of the Auditorium Stravinski. Far from the fads that the media create and destroy at a super-sonic rate, Kassav came up with their very own secret of eternal life. They combine respect for traditional musictraditional carnival-style melodieswith openness to influences from more contemporary music and techniques. In April of 2009, this multi-award-winning group filled the Stade de France with 65,000 adoring fans for a thirtieth-anniversary concert.

    Despite being the uncontested inventors of an entire musical genre and filling every seat in

    elephantine venues all over the planet, and even with successful solo careers and side projects in addition to Kassav, these apostles of zouk are still just as fresh as when they were just starting out. Theirs is true party music: three notes into their soundcheck and the press at-tachs, a pretty jaded group, were dancing in the aisles. The backstage is a combat zone: they just found out they are supposed to play a one-hour set when they are rather more accustomed to playing twice that long

    Between two interviews, Jocelyne Broard, the completely captivating lead singer of Kas-sav, explained the bands philosophy to me as we sat in the sun on the terrasse Nestl: We are often considered nothing but simple party music. But just because we can make people dance doesnt mean we cant try to make a dif-ference. Our songs say that if you really look at others you will learn to love them. Getting people to look for Beauty in others and in life is not only the best thing we have to offer, but also the very serious role of the artist. After a Coke Zero and three snapshots of the lake, she was off to rejoin her 12 musicians. Moments from going on, no signs of stage fright or stress: draped in their performance finery, they were joking with acquaintances.

    Kassav, the only group from the French West Indies on the summer festival circuit, displays the simple elegance of those with nothing to prove. The single special request on their minimalist rider gives a good idea: a bottle of champagne for Jocelyne if you want a big smile. We didnt need any bubblyKassav had us all beaming.Salom Kiner
