Gilberto Gil

Gilberto Passos Gil Moreira was born on 26 June 1942 in Salvador de Bahia. His was a quiet childhood spent in the family's country house close to the city. The violeros' duels (musical contests) in the small village market of Ituaçu, the radio shows from Rio de Janeiro and a meeting with accordion player Cinézio would inspire the young Gilberto to become a musician. At the age of 10, he went back to Salvador to go to school and joined an accordion academy. He formed his first group "Os Desafinados" at the age of 18, in which he played both the accordion and the vibraphone.

SUBMIT AN OFFERYuri Buenaventura
Yuri Buenaventura

The press have nicknamed him the « salsero Don Quixote ». Buenaventura’s social and political engagement has been nourished by his difficult start in life... and music. Named after the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, he grew up in a remote town of Colombia called… Buenaventura. After turning his back on economics studies in Paris he became a successful salsa crooner in the Latino Paris scene. A disastrous return to Colombia for a record project left him penniless. His interpretation of Jacques Brel’s classic “Ne me quitte pas” saved him, however, and Buenaventura became the first salsa singer in France to go gold. The singer has added three more albums to his repertory since that breakthrough. All testify to his audacious explorations of his Latin American heritage and its African roots.



Attirail (L')

"Attirail (noun): a collection of objects needed for a certain use". It is clearly not in the dictionary that a precise definition of L'Attirail may be found. In any case, does a definition even really exist ? L'Attirail's music is not the sort to be defined or categorised. L'Attirail's music is for listening to, living, dancing and more than likely drinking. Without forgetting travelling and partying.

Erik Marchand

Erik Marchand has been travelling the colourful routes of world music for several decades now. The singer and clarinet player has done as much as anyone to popularise music from his native southern Brittany, in particular the gwerz. Born in Paris, Marchand settled in his parents’ province of origin in 1975 and plunged into the traditional gwerzioù chanting and a repertory that was on the verge of extinction. The creation of his Gwerz band in the early 80s signalled a revival that has shown no sign of abating. Yet his passion for music from other horizons has also led to some of France’s most innovative exchanges with world music.

Paris Combo

Paris Combo is a colourful group made up of French, Australian and Madagscan musicians all with a common love for the repertoire of classic chanson française to which they irreverantly add pinches of gypsy jazz, Latin rhythms and Middle Eastern exoticism.

Carmen Consoli
Carmen Consoli

The lithe figure of Carmen Consoli has been a prominent feature of Italy’s folk, rock and « world music » scene for decades. She is considered one of the country’s most dextrous musicians, plunged into the traditional sounds of her native Sicily but equally at ease with rock, jazz, blues, bossa nova and folk. The rich texture of her voice gives life to songs full of passion, love and drama. She has won two Italian PIM awards for Best Song and Best Female Artist.
