Festival Les Suds, du 13 au 19 juillet 2015

The anthology




An Arlesian superproduction SUDS,
 in ARLES /world village


The Story...

On a beautiful summer evening, at the end of a concert of Toumani  Diabaté that the idea of collaboration between world village and Festival Les Suds sprouted. First clearing in September in order to make a CD...
May 30th 2012 : Official release of a CD-DVD box with 25 music bands and a booklet of 72 pages covered by Christian Lacroix! 

In the coming months, the idea has continued on its merry way, the project has been improved, meeting by meeting (highly accessible) between Pascal Bussy and Marie-José Justamond groups, both artistic directors, and, world village director and Les Suds director respectively, in Arles. 

Then a selection comes...
Between 1996 and 2010, there are some 96 music groups who came for a Moment Précieux, in the magnificient Cour de l'Archevêché or for a Création dans les Musées nearby... Becaucase technical issues, the "selection" was narrowed with digital recording, so we could only collect artist until 2003. And choose was very hard !  

Month after month, has resulted a tracklisting using everything that Moments Précieux have most unusual, including generous solo, original formation, touching or mighty voices, and surprising and "shifted" programations as a part of the Festival.

The evidence of the picture impoed itself because beyond the Cour de l'Archevêché and its magic, and beyond the risk to use the same background, this place is characterized with the personality of many artists, or maybe it's the opposite? Omar Sosa, with his weird stuff and magic formula, didn't he seem to surround the yard under a high yoruba protection? And what can be said about the impetuous Mônica Passos, didn't she bring her good humour during 2h30? Whereas our alpin Swiss people was beating the drums to additional exiled wild boar and stateless person. Soap bubbles from Pascals glided on this magical place for a long time, and the century-old chesnut-tree became Françoise Atlan 's companion... So many stories ! So many anecdotes ! So many adventures which are musical, artistic, and more than anything, human. Better to listen and remember these sounds than this Anthology can relate.


That's why we want to share these secrets with you, to give you in order to watch and listen. Crimped in a splendid case, these Moments Précieux are an invitation for a trip all around the world !
