October 27th - Ibrahim Maalouf

Halle Tony Garnier


Come and discover Ibrahim Maalouf’s 11th album on the stage of the Halle Tony Garnier. The programme includes boiling hot brass, lively percussions and nicely sculpted rhythms. This is not really jazz music nor exactly pop, and sometimes tends towards a touch of rock. Ibrahim Maalouf invites the audience to share his blended music, fresh and nostalgic yet always unclassifiable. With his 15 musicians, he delivers a corrosive performance and a wonderful tribute to Latin culture and Afro-Cuban music… a la Maalouf!

February 24th - marcel khalifÉ & bachar mar-khalifÉ

Auditorium de Lyon


Bachar Mar-Khalifé invites his father Marcel Khalifé, famous composer, oud player and singer, for a musical show in tribute to his friend Mahmoud Darwish, the great Palestinian poet. Marcel Khalifé gained international fame beyond the Arab world for his songs based on Mahmoud Darwish’s poetry. Today the Lebanese musician shares the stage with his son Bachar Mar-Khalifé, for a tribute centered on the friendship between the two artists. Famed for his mastery of the oud, Khalifé studied and taught this instrument in the Conservatoire of Beirut. He is invited to perform on the greatest stages and orchestras, and was named UNESCO Artist for Peace in 2005. In the Al Mayadeen collective he founded in Lebanon, he combines Arabian music and western instruments, with instrumental compositions and sung poetry. His name is closely linked to that of Mahmoud Darwish, deceased in 2008, whose poems remain the most well-known materials of his repertoire. With a unique style mixing eastern traditions with jazz and electro music, Bachar Mar-Khalifé invites his father and an instrumental ensemble on stage, to revisit this unique collaboration between a poet and a musician.

February 29th - chick corea trilogy

Auditorium de Lyon


Chick Corea and his brilliant stage partners revisit the mythical all-star acoustic trio. Throughout his career, the great Chick Corea explored many a path, from funk to symphonic music, through avant-garde creations and classicism. With Trilogy, he comes back to his legendary musical conversation with the virtuosos Christian McBride and Brian Blade. Together, they improvise and build upon music standards, compositions from Chick Corea and even a prelude from Scriabin. The live album from the Trilogy Trio, released in 2014 and honored by two Grammy Awards, quickly became a major work in all jazz discography. Chick Corea’s return on the stage of the Auditorium de Lyon with such a perfect band is a unique event.
