Avignon – Serge Kakudji is all smilles – at 26 years old, a child of Lubumbashi, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, he is in the opening of the Festival d’Avignon in “Coup fatal,” given from the 5th to 8th of July before a two-year world tour.
This is an extraordinary meeting we made with Serge Kakudji Congolese counter-tenor behind “Coup fatal”, which merges baroque music and Congolese music. A concert “choreographed” with empathy and subtlety by Alain Platel.
“The stunning opera singer that you see in the film Futur Simple working is the young Congolese countertenor Serge Kakudji. He was born in Kolwezi and grew up in Lubumbashi, capital of Katanga province.”
