FUSIONS: ALHAMBRA GENEVA
From Thursday 01 November 2018
To Sunday 11 November 2018

ALHAMBRAFusion Affichette 235x335

Fusions. Blending musical traditions

01.11.2018 - 11.11.2018

The concerts begin at 8.30 pm at the Alhambra et at 9 pm at the AMR-Sud des Alpes. Opening of the doors at 7 pm in the Alhambra. At 8pm in the AMR.

With the title "Fusions. Blending musical traditions", the edition 2018 of the Festival les Nuits du monde takes us on a journey along diverse trails of discovery through a particularly bold and inventive musical world.

Far from being some sort of cultural patchwork, the programme instead throws light upon the fascinating creative processes that help to shape rich, coherent soundscapes.

From the Mandinka guitar to the Ottoman cello, from Arabic-jazz maqâm and the popular polyphonic vocal traditions of the Mediterranean to imaginative Mongolian overtone singing and the ritualistic origins of The Rite of Spring, this programme calls on us to question some of our aesthetic divisions or categories.

These concerts and moments of interaction between the audience and musicians create a special time and space for dialogue and sharing.
