Eléonore Fourniau & Labyrinth Ensemble: Anatolian music
Sunday Nov, 1st at 20:00 | Duration: 70 min
With her rich voice and powerful performance, Eléonore Fourniau sings the people of Anatolia. Flying to Turkey in 2010 with a one-way ticket and a backpack, she fell in love with the cultural diversity of this region and spent more than 6 years studying Turkish and Kurdish music and languages.
Internationally acclaimed for the quality of her interpretation Kurdish music, she also sings in other Anatolian languages (Turkish, Laz, Armenian, etc.)
She accompanies herself with a three-stringed lute, the saz, the sacred instrument for the Alevi people, and the hurdy-gurdy, a western instrument of Medieval origin which echoes the mountains of Anatolia or the plains of Mesopotamia under her fingers.
