Haïdouti Orkestar

With Sylvain Dupuis (percussions) and Martin Saccardy (horns).
The whole audience of the Antique Theater was carried away during the last edition of the festival by the infectious energy of this Balkans brass band-orchestra who shared the stage with Ibrahim Maalouf. Founded in a Parisian area in 2004 by the drummer-percussionist and ethno-musicologist Sylvain Dupuis, the brass band-orchestra gathers 18 musicians from multiple nationalities : French, Greek, Bulgarian, Turkish, Gypsy of Serbia around the shared will to built bridges between Turkish and Balkan music. Dipping into the Azeris, Kurdish, Syrian-Lebanese and Armenian repertories, his writting offers an interbreeding of tradition and modernity between the eastern and western world … And if sometimes the frontiers are insurmountable walls, we can have confidence in the Haidouti musicians to abolish them with joy.
