The Ivorian author Koffi Kwahulé traces the genesis of the American black painter Basquiat, father of graffiti and leading figure of the New York underground movement. The author's text, performed by three actors, three "versions" of the same Basquiat, is crossed by dance, the live music of the saxophone and is punctuated by visual inserts, that prove the frenzy and urgency of creation that animated this meteor whose notoriety had not closed the intimate wounds.

JAZZ & ELECTRO CONCERT | FR | 2017 | 50’ | HD | French | By Mohamed Athamna | Axe Sud - Ewilona Prod | Broadcaster: Culture Box
This "concert-dance performance" is the encounter between the musical and sound universe of the collective Mâäk (European ensemble directed by Laurent Blondiau) between electro and jazz and that of five Burkinabe dancers, choreographed by Salia Sanou. The bodies and the instruments are confronting each other. Each rhythm and sound, gesture and movement is lost in the universe of the other to rebuild itself. Kawral is the quest for the beauty of encounter, instinctive, free and spontaneous, with improvisations where North and South meet, different lifestyles intertwine and discover each other.

Born a few years apart, they knew each other, appreciated and competed at a time when it was not good to be born black, woman, with talent for singing. Viktor Lazlo is in turn these three women with delight and charm.

From "3 Feet High and Rising", its first album of 1989, the American band De La Soul has revolutionized the history of rap and imposed a singular style. After 11 years of absence, these pillars of a hip-hop with humorous or activist lyrics, played on December 2, 2016 at the Zénith in Paris, on the occasion of the release of their amazing album "And the Anonymous Nobody". The atmosphere of this concert is marked by the complicity between the artists and the audience. The quasi-hippie attitude and the funky groove of Posdnuos, Dave and DJ Maseo are a show in itself.

Sivert Høyem is a Norwegian singer, best known as the vocalist of the rock band Madrugada. Since 2007, he has enjoyed success as a solo artist. He dreamed of playing a concert in the Herod Atticus Odeon amphitheater at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. In 2016, the dream came true, as Høyem - as one of very few artists approved by Greek authorities to perform at the theatre - played two sold out shows in front of 10.000 Greek fans.
