Le Douze

Concert - Village Off

After releasing a first noticed title “Fruits Of My Life” a few months ago, Le Douze finally delivers its first album “California Nebula”, dedicated to femininity, to the California sun… a music freed from constraints of genres or formats. Le Douze, through their songs, tell a story largely inspired by the life of the three musicians on the road, during their tours. The lyrics make us discover the City of Angels. An introspective album about reconnecting with the world to find inner peace. Their music reveals a stellar album sailing beyond codes. As the songs follow one another, the voices of David (Drums) and Frédéric (Keyboards) mingle with the vocal harmonies of guitarist Maxime, such as Crosby – Stills & Nash, or the Eagles (Living it up), with a musicality reminiscent of the funk rock of Phoenix (Turn your light on & California Nebula), or the flights of Air and Pink Floyd (Venus – Le Douze & Star to Star), magnified by powerful progressive rock ( Was it was, The Call, Au dessus de l’abysse).

Oli Féra

Concert - Village Off

Oli Féra is a wild pansy that slowly reveals the color of its petals. Inspired by human encounters and cinematic story-telling, this singer-songwriter performs with nuance a smoky, emotional and theatrical indie-rock that transports us into an author’s film full of adventures. Electric guitar in hand, she paints musical landscapes strewn with poetry and complex human relationships. A graduate of the École nationale de la chanson (Granby, QC) in 2021, winner of the Ma Première Place des Arts contest in 2017 and winner of the same contest in 2022, Oli Féra is an artist with a versatile voice, a big heart and an infectious laugh that will hypnotize you through authentic, engaging and revealing emotional theater.

Etaj

Concert - Village Off

Etaj is a metamorphic creature oozing from piece to piece, times curves, distorted waves and oscillatory crackles. Fruit of an assiduous and shared practice of improvisation, the beast is structured in drawer harmonies, intermingling the multiple influences of which its 4 members nourish: the spleen of Léo Ferré, the aggressiveness of Casey, the madness of Charlie Mingus and Pink Floyd. (Keyboards, texts: Édouard PONS Guitar: Thomas Rank Bass Clarinet: Jules Fromonteil Drums: Arnold Zeilig)

He invented the Cut’n’roll! He also excels in a Jazz / groove repertoire as shown in the video “Home sweet soul” which consecrated him Clash of the Titans (Jazz edition) world champion in 2021.

KOUDOUR

Concert - Village Off

Accompanied by jazz musicians Antonin-Tri Hoang and Matteo Bortone, singer-performer Hatice Özer invites us to dive into oriental trance. Surrounded by drums, piano, Syrian keyboard, saxophone, clarinet, and double bass, KOUDOUR pays homage to the troubadours and fakirs of Turkey, to those who seek trance through poetry, to those who return villages, to those who ignite marriages. The spoken parts are in French, and the song lyrics in Romani, Turkish, and Arabic. KOUDOUR is a communion, a state of joy to dance and mingle. There are in Turkey, in Rumania and in Bulgaria, men and women who are, it seems, dead of desire. KUDOUR — in the Romani Turkic language — means to die of desire. KOUDOUR is an attempt at collective elevation. KOUDOUR is a refrain that repeats itself ad infinitum.

Barbara Rivage

Concert - Village Off

Barbara Rivage propels us, from the first listen, into a universe mixing electro and psychedelic pop. Roxane’s dark, intense and sensitive voice, comes to support texts in French and obscure melodies which will quickly plunge the audience into a deep and exalted trance. Then begins a passionate duel between the tortured riffs of Vivien on the guitar and the aerial sounds of Roxane on the keyboard. From the first notes, Barbara Rivage sets the scene and navigates with astonishing ease between power and sensitivity. Couple in the city as they are on the stage: the shadow of the Rita hovers over Barbara Rivage, for a cold-pop and melancholic rewrite.
