A truly beautiful evening of singing and percussion, with two projects firmly rooted in traditional repertoires yet undeniably unique.
A great classic from Voix De Femmes!
La Crapaude is a female vocal and percussion duo rooted in the songs of Wallonia. Their imaginative, rhythmic arrangements bring this little-known heritage to life, breathing new life into this vocal tradition. With an offbeat simplicity, La Crapaude follows in the sung footsteps of her ancestors and enjoys telling the stories and landscapes of Wallonia with humour. Its intimate version creates a warm bond with the audience and rekindles the joy of singing together! In short, La Crapaude surprises with its complicity and the originality of its repertoire.
La Mòssa is formed by Emmanuelle Ader, Sara Giommetti, Aude Marchand and Lilia Ruocco: four heads filled with ideas determined to free themselves from the codes of traditional music by drawing on their respective influences and to achieve, together, a perpetual movement, a truly polyphonic and percussive whirlwind.
Fed at the very source of traditional repertoires to polish a gem of a first album (A moss’! was released in 2019), they continue growing strong by enriching the project with numerous original compositions. Each member of the group participates in this great musical feast, which is at once subtle, feverish, and socially engaged.
A variety of tastes coming from many places blend: the originality of Southern Italy’s soil, the sweet and spicy words from the island of La Reunion, poet Garcia Lorca’s Spain, strong and vocal Occitania... added to hybrid reinterpretations of pieces from Sweden, Venezuela, and Puglia.
