Notice to fans of ethnic and traditional music!

This Thursday, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., CRIMES, the new project of lyonnais saxophonist and singer Julien Lesuisse. Raï music as raw as it is poignant punctuated by a funk production from the 70s and soul from Sicily.
Then, from 9:30 p.m. to 10:45 p.m., ISHTAR or the suspended dialogue between the harp, the oud, the saz and the rabâb, in which the voices of Maëlle Duchemin and Maëlle Coulange are intertwined, two musicians passionate about traditional music.
