SIMON RUMMEL (INSTALLATION)
Eclectic artist if any, Simon Rummel offers tonight to listen to his backstage organ fully designed and built by him. This concert / installation will bring to the fore the long metamorphosis of a consonant chord that distorts itself with the changes of length of pipes that orders the single crank.

CREATION OF THE UMLAUT COLLECTIVE
For each evening of the festival, the Umlaut Paris and Umlaut Berlin teams will propose a joint creation.

QUARTET BE NKADI
Mixing traditional rhythms from West Africa (Burkina-Faso) with the influences of the African diaspora (funk sounds, groove, Cuban, jazzy), Benkadi Quartet represents the link between these two worlds.

SATURDAY JANUARY 27 – 8PM

TOMA GOUBAND
Toma Gouband is an unclassifiable percussionist who creates polyrhythmic complexes of seemingly simple raw materials: lithophones, pine cones, plants, cymbals …

YELLOW DESERT ORCHESTRA EXPERIENCE
With the “Yellow Desert Orchestra Experience”, Eve Risser concocts an appetizing program with Louis Moholo in and compos and other arrangements and disturbances.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 28TH – 5.30 PM

DUO GENOWEFA LENARCIK & OLGA KOZIEL
Genofewa Lenarcik and Olga Kozieł sing songs from the Kurpie region (Poland). For one, it represents the heritage of his father, for the other the passion for the traditional music of his country. This duet, or sometimes this double solo, gives a glimpse of the raw and sincere poetry of a musical tradition imbued with rurality.

BÉLA QUARTET
The Béla quartet brings together four pioneering and curious musicians, at ease in the performance of a quartet by Ligeti or Janacek as in the music of the singer Albert Marcoeur. Here it is a program of “cries and whispers” that they will make us discover, with the quartets of Helmut Lachemann, Emmanuel Scarpa, George Aperghis and John Rea.
