Michel Alibo


Member Profile in ENGLISH

Michel Alibo is one of jazz and world music’s most accomplished and influential musicians. Bassist of choice, not to just some of world music’s most visible stars, he’s also the premier bassist for entire subcategories of world styles.

Michel has laid down textbook grooves in Latin, Caribbean, African, and fusion forms in such subgenres as beguine, reggae, zouk, soukos, groka and many more.

More importantly, he’s one of the first guys to start crossing ‚em all up. He’s continued that signature trend, begun as a teenager when he introduced clean and athletic thumb and slap style to African grooves, through today, as he currently focuses on applying the subtle mysteries of North African grooves and concept to electric jazz.
