“Le Ravage d'Ali Baba" is the first project of De Koffie Van Morgen, creative platform of drummer and graphic artist Simon Plancke. As a volunteer for Vzw Humain, he wanted to create an artistic product by incorporating stories from refugees, after he found that the common perception of this group of people was too one-sided and conflicted with his own experiences. That urge was translated into a multimedia show.
Musically, Plancke called on a few young fellow Belgian jazz musicians: Hendrik Lasure (SCHNTZL, Bombataz), Thijs Troch (Hypochristmutreefuzz) and Elias Devoldere (Nordmann). They traveled along with volunteers from Vzw Humain to different refugee camps in Brussels, Calais and Dunkirk. The conversations they had with the refugees were incorporated in a concert series at JazzLab (from 1/12), but were also used for an album that they recorded together with master producer Koen Gisen.
On December 1st a book + CD will be published via WERF Records, which will be presented during the premiere in KAAP / Vrijstaat O. (Oostende). The book contains texts from 9 dedicated authors who also went to the refugee camps and processed their impressions and recorded stories into personal contributions: Anne Provoost, Yasmien Naciri, Aya Sabi, Dalilla Hermans, Carmien Michels, Sabrine Ingabire, Rachida Lamrabet, Birsen Taspinar and Ann Lamon. In addition, the book contains pictures and drawings from vzw Light Of The Children.
