Ethnofonik: Reinventing Traditional Music

From 21st to 28th of January 2012, the French NGO “ALORS ON LE FAIT” (Saclay, France) has organized an international training course on the transmission of traditional European music between generations and different nationalities. 24 musicians from 11 European countries have met during 8 days. Each one has taught the others one tune or song of traditional/folk music of his/her country, his/her region with the aim to exchange and keep alive the European musical heritage.

2 concerts, in Evry Conservatoire and Villebon-sur-Yvette Youth Cultural Center, were the visible tip of the iceberg of 8 intense days of music and intercultural exchanges between young artists of different nationalities and mixed ethnic backgrounds.
