20h00

Stéphane Wrembel : guitar

The world-renown, French-American guitarist Stephane Wrembel is a major voice in contemporary guitar. His style is inspired by a rich selection of influences (classical, rock, gypsy, Indian and North African music) which he learned in New York, the city where the alchemy of these genres have binded. Woody Allen has recruited Wrembel to write the themes of two of his more recent successful films: “Vicky Christina Barcelona” and “Midnight in Paris,” and in 2012 he was invited to perform at the Oscars. Acclaimed around the world for the past fifteen years, this native musician from Fontainebleau is now connected to greater international stages (most recently, Carnegie Hall with Al Di Meola, Larry Keel and Stochelo Rosenberg) and gives nearly 200 concerts per year in the United States.

AVISHAI COHEN TRIO

21h15

Avishai Cohen : bass

Omri Mor : piano

Noam David : percussions

A revered bassist and composer unequaled, discovered by Chick Corea in the ‘90s, Avishai Cohen will weave together his unique collaborations with the likes of Alicia Keys, Herbie Hancock, Brad Mehldau and Bobby McFerrin among others. The adventurous seeker of rhythm, groove and trance returns to his vocational interest, the acoustic trio, including the “fingers of gold” of Omri Mor and the irresistible Noam David. Their trio is one of the best in the world and their concerts are always unmistakable events.

Last album of the trio : From Darkness / Razdaz Recordz / WEA

ASAF AVIDAN

23h00

Asaf AVIDAN : artist / lead singer

Adam SCHEFLAN : bass

Ido ZELEZNIK : keyboards

Shahar HAZIZA : drums

Armed with his guitar, his punk crest and his high-pitched vocals, the young Israeli artist could categorize himself amongst the likes of Jeff Buckley and Janis Joplin. He has made his name known from playing in The Mojos, a group amongst the best in Europe. As a solo artist, he has made his global success from the remix of “Reckoning Song/One Day,” made secretively for one of his fans. After its release, a huge wave swept the world and transformed the song into an international hit earning it the N° 1 spot in 14 countries and selling more than 1.5 million copies. With Gold and Platinum discs and sold-out concerts throughout the world, Avidan is the new hit-maker of Blues/Pop/Folk at the moment. He is truly earth shattering.
