COLLECTIF MEDZ BAZAR
An ensemble born in Paris in 2012, comprises musicians with Armenian, Turkish, French and American backgrounds. Drawing on their respective traditions as well as those of neighbouring cultures, the members of the collective create together, writing original arrangements for folk songs as well as their own compositions, which tackle social questions and challenge political and cultural boundaries.
On stage, they offer a fruitful balance between tempered instruments and music of modal traditions, Middle-Eastern percussion and voices with influences going from Asia Minor to Iran, from Caucasian rabiz to Thracian rhythms, from Latin American music to operette, crossing through hip-hop, swing and bluegrass.
Singing love and justice by way of their multi-dimensional music and bursting energy on stage, the voices of Medz Bazar resound to appease, mesmerise or ignite the audience, in an invitation to traverse as many sounds and rhythms as questionings on the other and on oneself.
