NOTE NOIRE 4ET Feat. Ruben Chaviano European Gyspy Music
The programme follows a path through sounds and forms of the gypsy tradition that crossed Europe in the 20th century: Hungarian czardas, valse musette, swing, and Rumanian hora. This heterogeneous musical panorama, which extends from France to the Balkans and to the Eastern European countries, crossing Alsace, the former Yugoslavia, Albania, Serbia and Rumania, is amalgamated within a sonority typical of French manouche swing, in tribute to the musician Django Reinhardt and his people; the gypsies, sole witnesses until now of the extraordinary variety and wealth of the musical languages that animate the European culture. The violin narrates, weeps, jokes, flees… in search of a sonorous enchantment that, together with the light but powerful rhythmics of the guitar, accordion, and double bass, succeeds in lifting people’s souls and uniting them in jubilation. During the concert, there will be no lack of improvisations in which themes and melodies will be liberated, guided from time to time by the individual instruments.
