Concert Double : Voix du Monde Aster Aweke / Les Nouvelles Polyphonies Corses

If you believe that music brings the world together, thon you'll surely appreciate this particularly international double bill. From Ethiopia, singer Aster Aweke. Creator of a totally new Amharic soul (Amharic is Ethiopia's official language) that's taking America by storm, she has rapidly become one of the top names on the world music chart. Aweke exudes the emotion of Aretha Franklin and the warmth of Anita Baker; her music defies description but critics have compared it to a mix of Kate Bush, Salif Keïta and Youssou N'Dour. And from Corsica, Les Nouvelles Polyphonies Corses. Inimitable and unusual, this exceptional group makes of Corsican polyphony an art in its own right, one that emotionally combines individual sensitivity, highly developed technique and a respect for tradition. Les Nouvelles Polyphonies Corses are presented in their purest form, with a solo percussionist to accompany the five mysterious voices.
