Arsène Duevi is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and musical shaman from Togo, in Italy from 2002. He seduces with his sounds that mix Africa and Europe, Jazz and World Music, songwriting and improvisation. With Out of Africa (2010), Arsène sang to us of the colors of a land impossible to leave behind, with Haya (Musicamorfosi 2016) premiered in Rome at Parco della Musica he celebrated the life and the hope of those who emigrate.
He sings in Ewè, Italian and French. All the songs share the same message coming directly from the Southern hemisphere: choose life, don’t let yourself be used by money, never give up, hug one another, stand up, sing and make your voice stand out in a sea of other voices.
