Bosque Mágico featuring Djim Radé

On our concert tour 2018 in Chad we played a concert with the singer and jazz guitarist Djim Radé.

Fascinated by his fusion of traditional African music and jazz as well as his own nuanced songs, we decided to continue this collaboration. We are planning the first concerts in Germany and Switzerland in autumn 2020.

Djim Radé was born in August 1987 in Sarh/Chad. He started playing drums at the age of 4, which he himself made from cans. At the age of 8 he joined the choir of his church and later the Beraka group, where he participated in several festivals in Chad.

Djim RadéHe quickly made a name for himself in the Chad music scene, where he was supported by artists such as Abdoulaye N'derguet, Mounira Mitchallah and the GroupeTibestietc.

In 2010 Djim Radé was invited by the City of Toulouse to take part in the artistic creation of Jeune du Monde "Terre d´Universelle" and to start university studies within the partnership between Toulouse and N'Djamena. He deepened his musical knowledge and studied musicology at the Jean Jaures University and the National Conservatory of Toulouse.

These numerous experiences prompted him to found The Toh Nal Project, with which he participated in several major jazz festivals in France, Italy, Spain, Israel and Chad.

Back in Chad in 2016, he never stopped developing concepts that should improve and promote the jazz scene there, including the international jazz festival "Ronel Jazz N'Djaména", the 4th edition of which took place in N’Djaména in October 2019.
