PARIS, 21 mai 2005 (AFP) - Corey Harris à la Java le 25 - Le guitariste et chanteur américain Corey Harris, troubadour-musicien, à la fois serviteur d'un Mississipi blues authentique et influencé par d'autres styles de musiques métisses, était en concert à Paris (La Java) le 25 mai 2005. Sur son nouvel album qui vient de paraître, "Daily Bread" (Rounder Records), il s'ouvre encore plus largement qu'à l'accoutumée au reggae. A l'instar de Olu Dara, autre musicien aventurier et voyageur, sa musique navigue entre blues, calypso, reggae, dub, country, rythm'n blues, folk. Corey Harris est le personnage principal du film de Martin Scorsese, "From Mali to Mississipi", paru l'an dernier, où il jouait son propre rôle, celui d'un musicien afro-américain en quête de ses racines.
