This opening concert is a jazz chant that brings Asia and Europe together in complicity and creation.
It brings together musicians who are passionate about exploring new soundscapes and invites the listener to discover new sonorities, in which sounds and genres intertwine and cross.
The award-winning French jazz accordionist Vincent Peirani is a musician of multiple talents. Passionate about Asia, and Indonesia in particular, he takes us on an original musical journey in which traditional Southeast Asian melodies and his own original compositions resonate and form dialogues with one another.
In this unique concert, Peirani plays with his two faithful and no less talented companions, saxophonist Émile Parisien and violinist Sébastien Surel. They are joined by one of the most brilliant musicians of the Indonesian archipelago, pianist Sri Hanuraga (Aga). Trained in Indonesia and then in Amsterdam, he inhabits a musical universe nourished by multiple influences, from jazz to contemporary and from traditional music to rock. These make Aga a major and unavoidable figure in the young Indonesian scene.
