  • - Sophye Soliveau Trio
    Harp & soul, such is the universe of Sophye Soliveau, a young harpist and singer anchored in the world of today's "Great Black Music", determined to explore all the potential of her instrument and her voice beyond academicisms and categorizations. On the harp, she found her style, at once spicy, reverberant, free and groovy.

    - Sophye Soliveau Trio
    Harp & soul, such is the universe of Sophye Soliveau, a young harpist and singer anchored in the world of today's "Great Black Music", determined to explore all the potential of her instrument and her voice beyond academicisms and categorizations. On the harp, she found her style, at once spicy, reverberant, free and groovy. On vocals, the approach is deeply imbued with nu-soul, the musical genre which played its role in the emancipation of Afro-descendants, and his songs evoke the search for healing or celebrate trance. On stage, the musicality is impressive, especially as it can transform the audience into a giant choir – Sophye also directs the afrofeminist choir Maré Mananga. From the diversion which nourishes her improvisations and her learning of freedom, was born Initiation, a first EP which she presents as a trio for the opening of Banlieues Bleues.

    - Cleo Reed & The Black American Circus
    Sound composer, singer, guitarist, performer, this intrepid young gem from the new Brooklyn scene magnetically embodies the bright side of the creative future of music. Teeming with ideas, his artistic universe defies genres -rock, jazz, afropunk, blues, rap-, the rules -uncompromising sound, 360° independence-, and even time. A native of Harlem, she renamed herself Cleo Reed in homage to her great-grandmother and another of her ancestors, who was enslaved but who emerged to raise a strong family in the South. “I wanted to know more about what their lives meant, with all their sacrifices, and mean to us as descendants. » And to specify, in the afterword of Root Cause, her captivating first album, which she tinges on stage with vaudeville or even burlesque: “I am inspired by the Harlem Renaissance to tell stories that lie outside of wealth, of the harshness, of everything that happened once industry appeared in this country. » Welcome to the Black American Circus!
