The resolutely philosophical Quebec rap of Webster with its intercultural nuggets.The wild and captivating swinging pop of France’s GINKGOA, an irresistible invitation to dance.

 

29 unforgettable encounters featuring the colors of the francophonie presented by the Alliances françaises network, the embassies of Canada, Switzerland and Belgium, the Wallonia-Brussels Delegation, and Quebec offices in China.

Olivier Juprelle

(Belgium / Wallonia-Brussels Delegation /Pop folk French songs)

 

Following the release of a first self-produced EP, Olivier Juprelle is back with a better and freer 10-track first album.

 

Recorded between Brussel’s mythical Jet Studio and the muted atmosphere of a cottage cut off from the world, this jazz-fan composer's first opus in French has been conceived with complete freedom of creation thanks to Internet users' financial participation.

 

“Le bruit et la fureur”, literally “The Sound and the Fury” (referencing William Faulkner) is a clever fusion of analogue technology and a multi-instrumental array, evoking the music of Johnny Cash and Leonard Cohen.

 

Olivier Juprelle will perform a tour de force in China with the guitar player Jérôme Mardaga (Ex-Geronimo) at his side, pioneering force of Walloon's indie scene.

Webster

(Québec-Canada / Rap)

 

Aly Ndiaye, a.k.a. Webster, was born and grew up in the Limoilou district of Québec city. Born to a Senegalese father and a Québecois mother, he has always been proud of his roots and refers to himself as a pure wool SénéQueb métis. His passion for history led him to pursue a university education in that field.

 

Both a hip-hop artist and an anti-racism activist, Webster is very involved socially: he regularly lectures on the influence of hip-hop on young people and the issue of multiculturalism in Québec. His favorite subject is the history of Blacks in Québec and Canada.

 

Since 2009, he has been touring Canada and the United States to give hip-hop writing workshops in which he teaches both young and old how to compose in French.

 

On the musical front, Webster has been active since 1995. As a founding member of the collective Limoilou Starz, he is one of the pioneers of the hip-hop scene in Québec City. The “Old Man from the Mountain” is known for the quality of his lyrics and the intelligence permeating his words. His art is a tool he has been honing for nearly two decades, allowing him to draw from his cultural and intellectual background to spread his message in the most powerful way.
