Grand Ensemble de la Méditerranée

 Strasbourg, Alsace, FRA

Festive music from the Eastern Mediterranean


Nine life trajectories and nine musical trajectories meet and merge, coming to rest a while around a sea of light, that of the Mediterranean. Some dwell on Oriental shores, some elect for the Balkans while others build bridges for Africa. From the fragile breath of Armenia to the powerful rhythmics of Maghreb, we meet along the way a Greek Syrto dancer, an Ottoman lost in Thrace, a Bosnian staggering with nostalgia, a mad Bulgarian and a gipsy who no longer knows where he came from nor where he wanted to go
