13 years after their last stage appearance, Sixun, “six musicians who form but one” – a leading band in European fusion in the 80s and 90s – are giving themselves a new lease of life. At the same time as a digital republication of their entire discography (a dozen albums), the band signed up with BMG for a 13th album which was released in October 2022. This double presence aims to encourage rediscovery of the band’s major works and develop their visibility on an international level.
Founded in 1984, Sixun constructed over a period of more than 20 years a distinctive career and were awarded in 2006 a Django d’Or for their album live à la Cigale. An international band with strong and inspired leaders, Sixun creates a skilful combination of afro-jazz-funk melodies and rhythm, served up by high-level soloists (Alain Debiossat, Louis Winsberg), a colourful wind section (Michel Alibo, Jean-Pierre Como) and an impressive rhythmic tandem (Stephane Edouard, Paco Sery).
Reunited during lockdown, the six companions once more joined their forces and talents to create this new repertoire of original works and reconstruct the Sixun “sound” for which they are renowned. Recorded at the Meudon Sudio, this new album brings a modern touch to the band’s glowing groove, with its powerful rhythmics and captivating melodies, luxuriant harmonies and inspired improvisation.
“Unixsity” is the bearer of freedom. It is a flamboyant invitation to celebrate the triumph of their particular musical style. Love of music, energy, creativity: these are evident in this new album which illustrates Sixun’s unique identity.
