Nouroog is full of contrasts, yet with an acoustic sound as a common thread.
Their music is imprinted by the influence of musicians such as Charles Mingus, Roland Kirk, Eric Dolphy or Steve Lacy.
Although improvisation can constantly shake the music up with unpredictability, the essence of each piece is rooted in composition and the melodic impulse is never far.

Geoffrey Fiorese (Toots Thielemans Award 2017) nous présente au sein de son Quartet Terpsichore un travail pleinement abouti. Une musique originale, des mélodies ciselées, des séquences d'improvisation parfois surprenantes mais toujours pertinentes, ceci dans un univers résolument jazz.
L'influence de grands noms est perceptible (Keith Jarrett, Wayne Shorter...) dans les compositions et arrangements du leader du Quartet, Geoffrey Fiorese, qui signe là un travail musical mature, à l'identité affirmée
Limite | Mário Peixoto | Brazil, 1931
An astonishing creation, Limite is the only feature by the Brazilian director and author Mário Peixoto, made when he was just twenty-two years old. This avant-garde silent masterpiece centers on a man and two women lost at sea, their pasts unfolding through flashbacks. An early work of independent Latin American film-making, Limite was famously difficult to see for most of the twentieth century. It is a pioneering achievement that continues to captivate with its timeless visual poetry.
Utnuz and Omega Impact perform original music composed by Jordi Cassagne, a cross-national collaboration between musicians based in The Netherlands, Belgium and France, marking the 110th birthday of Mario Peixoto.

« BASA AHAIDE »…Dans les montagnes souletines et plus particulièrement dans les Arbailles, les ancêtres, bergers, chantaient déjà ces chants liés à la nature, au monde sauvage… Les Basa Ahaide. Sans paroles, véritables calligraphies sonores, ils expriment le vol de l’aigle ou des chocards… mais aussi l’émerveillement et l’humilité de l’humain devant l’immensité de la nature.
Les Basa Ahaide réclament du souffle, une force calme et profonde, de l’audace vers les cimes… pour que ces « chants longs », mélodies parmi les plus belles, prennent vie.
Marie Galante invites you to feel the tropical vibe
with some of the greatest retro Caribbean hits.
Sway your hips to the accents of mazurkas as well as to the frenzied rhythms of Haitian kompas and biguine.
Sing along with the hymn of the legendary football team "Jeunesse Vauclin" . Embrace your beloved Doudou
and dance till the end of the night !
"Théo Lanau is stunning on drums, with his mind blowing breaks ; on bass, Jordi Cassagne confidently keeps the groove ;
Benjamin Sauzereau and Léo Rathier play like never before,
with their inimitable double-guitar presence ; and finally, Hélène Duret "lady stop-chorus", performs at the peak of her
art on clarinet and lead vocals".
Most likely this is the best dance band of the universe !
"These three inventive musicians bring a fresh approach to the art of a trio…
They have already travelled along the roads of free jazz traced out by Ornette Coleman, dug deep down into the African roots of Don Cherry and John Coltrane, embraced the soaring intensity of Daunik Lazro… sung the song of the eagles gliding in the skies, bringing a new insight to truly timeless Basque musical traditions… They give voice to skin, metal, cascabelle rattles and bells with the sure and melodious harmony of the greatest traditions of rhythm, the alchemy of Rachid Ali and Xenakis, the flamboyance of black sounds: skimmed, ricocheted, pounded and played to the core…
Three circumvoluted spirals coiling and entwining within each musical moment… Dazzling themes, gathered and collected, are opened and projected within a magnificent surrealist universe that transforms them… wild Asian landscapes with a flavour of high mountains, the murmuring rustle of tropical rainforests, the crashing of waves, the song of lovers, a world drunk on the elation of twinkling stars, the heady seduction of spices, a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that, with their simple modesty, does not obstruct the enjoyment of lapping at the source and venturing down new roads…
Roads where action and movement are expressed in a tribute to life."
