Kickstart the Month of the Francophonie with French Jazz!

Estonia

March 4, 2018 / March 11, 2018

Celebrate March, the Month of the Francophonie and participate in various cultural and linguistic events in Tallinn and elsewhere!

The Voyageurs de l’Espace (Space Travellers) collective was created in 2009 for the “Fête de la Musique” event. The CNES (Centre National d’Études Spatiales) Space Observatory had ordered space-themed content from different writers, which were later set to music by the cellist Didier Petit, the drummer Philippe Foch and the singer Claudia Solal. When adding their rhythm, hypnotic melodies and voices to these writings, they created a stellar playlist that showcased man’s efforts in the Conquest of Space while reminding people of the remarquable forces of cosmos.     

Tour Dates :

  • Sunday 4 March at 17:00 at the Great Hall of the KUMU Museum in Tallinn
  • Monday 5 March at 19:00 at Türi Cultural Center
  • Tuesday 6 March at 19:00 at Viljandi Jazzclub
  • Wednesday 7 March at 19:00 at the Estonian National Museum in Tartu
  • Sunday 11 March at 18:00 at Kuressaare Cultural Center

Many thanks to the Jazzkaar festival and to the Vapaat Äänet agency !
