Rhythms of dances and folk melodies irrigate the works of many composers, even in the most subtle and virtuoso polyphonies – in which Les Cris de Paris prove once again their savoir-faire.

As a result of an ethnomusicological process (as in the Székely Songs by Bartók, the Bachianas Brasileiras by Villa-Lobos, or Asmarâ by Florentz), or of an identity process (as in Rakastava by Sibelius or the Three Choral Ballads by Stenhammar), or of a daily fusion between tradition and modernity, vocal music has always been the privileged place of this encounter.

Les Cris de Paris invite a trip from the Corn of Africa to the Great North, through Eastern Europe and Russia, but also through far more unexpected destinations such as the Central-Africa Republic or the Salomon Islands, accompanied in their expedition by the composer and long time partner Vincent Manac’h.
