French pianist and composer Eve Risser is one the most sought artists of the young European creative scene, at the crossroads of jazz, improvised and contemporary music. With a strong experience in the Orchestre National de Jazz and many musical creations, she made the bet of writing for a ten-musician orchestra gathering the cream of the Parisian scene as well as a Norwegian trumpet player.
This White Desert Orchestra is a musical project inspired by the Canyons of South West America.
Simultaneously, Eve Risser initiated The Red Desert Orchestra, an ensemble made up of nine European musicians. This band works with two programs: Kogoba Basigui, from the meeting with seven Malian musicians living in Bamako (Kaladjula Band) and Eurythmia which brings together the Red Desert orchestra with three Burkinabe musicians living in France.
