Jazz, World, Pop
In September 2020, Ibrahim Maalouf will exclusively offer the music from his next album – to be released next November – during an exceptional concert behind the closed doors of the Arena of Nîmes. He returns to the elementary form of the duo, with the guitarist who has accompanied him for over 10 years, François Delporte. The exercise is perilous. No rhythm section, no orchestra, no electronic effects: just the elementary conversation of two melodic lines for an intimate concert in an immense space.
A few guests will join the duo…
This performance is a rendezvous with history: the Arenas of Nîmes, built at the end of the 1st century AD, are one of the best preserved Roman constructions in the world. To walk in these arenas is to walk in 1900 years of history, to breathe the air of another civilization.
