Da Break - Saturday 02 December - 8.30pm
Musical style: Soul Hip-Hop
Imagine warm music dedicated body and soul to groove. Open your eyes and you'll find Da Break, a quintet from Lyon who draw on their fertile love affair with black American music, from vintage soul to hip-hop (West Coast and old-school options), without shying away from R'n'B and funk. Both on their three albums and on stage, the band's songs are driven by Hawa's voice, which combines power and sweetness with stunning ease, and driven by a science of elastic rhythms.
Da Break invites you to join in the dance, and it's impossible to resist!
Best Riddim Eternal Action Krew! This is the mission DA BREAK has set itself for its 3rd album: to deliver another top-quality opus that will remain eternally engraved in the memories of Soul Music. BOOM! Quite simply.
Jennifer "Hawa" Zonou & Rémy Kaprielan, founding members of the group, have decided to close ranks and clarify the content of their music: an aesthetic still rooted in their beloved 90's Soul Hip Hop culture, but also with a sharp ear for today's sounds and worlds, always at the service of a unifying groove and a warm vibe.
Hawa (Vocal), Kamal Mazoui (Bass) , Rémy Kaprielan (Drums), Pierre Vadon (Keyboards), Nicolas Mondon (Guitar).
Aurore Voilqué trio feat Angelo Debarre - Thursday 07 December - 8.30pm
Musical style: Gipsy jazz, Song
After various projects, all very different from one another (Aurore Voilqué Septet, Rhoda Scott, Mayfair Electro Jazz or Orient Occident), violinist and singer Aurore Voilqué is releasing a second album in homage to the Manouche music she loves so much, alongside one of the style's greatest guitarists, Angelo Debarre.
Surrounded by a relentlessly groovy rhythm section led by Mathieu Chatelain on guitar and Claudius Dupont on double bass, the two soloists can let themselves improvise without hindrance. There's no denying it, they're on the move, and in the traditional way.
It's this genuine gypsy sound that the violinist has gone in search of by bringing together these 3 musicians, among the most sought-after in the style.
A magnificent voyage into the gypsy world, between Django Reinhardt standards, French songs and magnificent compositions by maestro Angelo Debarre.
Aurore Voilqué (violin, vocals), Angelo Debarre (lead guitar), Mathieu Chatelain (rhythm guitar), Claudius Dupont (double bass).

1st Set : Jeanne Michard Latin 5tet :
Following three trips to Latin America, Cuba and New York, and encounters in various projects, Jeanne Michard decided to set up her own band and devise a repertoire in keeping with her primary influences: jazz, Latin and Afro-Cuban music.
Her compositions blend traditional rhythms with the cadences and phrasing attributed to the bebop jazz of the 40s. She has teamed up with pianist Clément Simon, double bassist Maurizio Congiu and percussionists Natascha Rogers and Pedro Barrios for her first album, 'Songes transatlantiques', in which she revisits her travels through music, combining percussion with harmonies reminiscent of traditional jazz.
2nd Set : Jodie's Mood Project
A fan of jazz clubs and jam sessions, Jeanne Michard quickly came into contact with the cream of the Paris jazz scene when she started out around 7 years ago. She ended up playing regularly with musicians from the Zoot Collectif and the Paris Jazz Sessions, among others. Surrounded by all these talented musicians, it was at this point that she felt the urge to write for a medium-sized band.
