GoGo Penguin with Guillaume Perret | June 24 | 8pm | West End Cultural Centre

Alliance Française du Manitoba is excited to partner with Jazz Winnipeg to present Guillaume Perret at the 2018 Winnipeg Jazz Festival! Perret is a virtuoso jazz saxophonist, keyboard player, and composer from Annecy, France. After recording two excellent albums with his group Electric Epic, French saxophonist Guillaume Perret went solo with Free in 2016: with funky grooves and abstract harmonies, impressions of a retro-futurist Africa and post-psychedelic U-turns, it’s a fusion of all forms of jazz, where all influences collide. He will join Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin at the West End Cultural Centre.

How can a community preserve a language and culture in danger of disappearing?

A free screening of the film will be followed by a discussion with the director and community members working to keep diverse languages alive in Manitoba.
