FESTIVAL AU FIL DES VOIX - 12TH EDITION
04 > 16 FEBRUARY 2019
Since the dawn of time, traditional music from around the world has resonated; first created, then travelling and sometimes transforming itself. Contemporary artists need to seize new opportunities, to appropriate them and to make themselves heard on international stages. Developing this idea, the festival Au Fil des Voix is positioned as an amplifier of these singular voices, bearers of a story, borrowed from a culture, an aesthetic, an identity and the soul of a particular culture.
With the increased standardization of contemporary music and the vast amount of musical creations growing each and every day, the festival Au Fil des Voix aims to defend musical diversity by offering more than just a concert : on stage, there are new encounters, sometimes daring, natural or unforeseen; transcultural dialogues, reflections of the artistic wealth of the world. For 12 years now, a total of nearly 237 bands, 1000 musicians from more than 65 countries and regions who can testify of the perpetual renewal of music and the great voices of the world, constantly in movement.
In 2019, for the 12th edition, the festival broadens its horizons by presenting 12 exceptional concerts: the opening night at La Cigale, evenings at the Bal Blomet, the Studio de l’Ermitage, L’Alhambra and the closing night at the Trianon.
