André 3000: New Blue Sun LIVE

Swiss exclusivity

Having upended the conventions of hip-hop for over twenty years with Outkast, André 3000 continues to wander off the beaten track. Rapper, producer, actor, fashion icon and now flautist, the Atlanta native has released his first solo project, New Blue Sun. Moving between jazz improvisation and meditative atmospherics, the album is a captivating instrumental exploration in the tradition of artists such as Alice Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders and Miles’ In A Silent Way. Released at the end of last year, New Blue Sun became the first instrumental album to reach the Top 200 of the Billboard Charts. On stage, André 3000 reveals the infinite sonic possibilities of his different flutes, surrounded by top flight musicians from the jazz and ambient scenes: Carlos Nino, Nate Mercereau, Deantoni Parks and Surya Botofasina.
