Spring 2024 🌱

29 February 2024

Hello everyone,

I’m writing this newsletter from Cairo, my heart both nourished by the energy of the city, and heavy because of the situation in Gaza and other parts of the world (Sudan, Yemen, Lebanon, Congo, Kurdistan, sadly the list goes on…).

Spring concerts

There will be 3 special concerts, that I’d like to share with you:

March 8 at Le Bout du Monde in Vevey

Concert in support of the Palestinian cause. With Melissa Kassab, Adham Zidan, Malekah Al-Muaid, Yassin Mahdi, Chadi Messmer, Cedric Blaser, Rana Bassil and others!

March 23 at La Spirale, Fribourg

With two special guests, two wonderful musicians: Louise Knobil and Aïda Gabrielle Diop.

April 11 at the Cully Jazz Festival

Another special concert: we’ll be playing with Yann Hunziker in the Temple, a 100% acoustic set with no sound system!

New song “Les médicaments”

Today sees the release of a new track, a collaboration with the duo Martin XVII.

I had this song, but wasn’t convinced by the arrangement or the production. So Pascal and Louis and I spent a few days exploring together, and they came up with some great ideas!

In the end, we find the character of Martin XVII and my own, a well-balanced mix, all illustrated by Valentine Moser in an amazing video.

The Wonder Way – Documentary by Emmanuelle Antille

During the week of March 4 to 8, I’ll have the pleasure of playing at the end of screenings of Emmanuelle Antille’s new film. In resonance with the images, I’ll be performing an atmospheric sound exploration of ca. 20 minutes.

You’ll find the dates of screenings and concerts on the film’s official website.

Thank you for your attention and see you soon!
