MOSAIQUES is a festival of world culture, and celebrate diversity in music, film and the arts from all over the world. This year's live music line-up for the main shows at Rich Mix will features cutting-edge contemporary music produced in France, UK, Turkey and beyond, with a mix of genres to delight all ears.
For its 16th edition, MOSAIQUES is broadening its scope and expanding its programme to cover two nights of live music at Richmix, on the 14th & 15th October.
Each of the two nights of the festival - Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October – will feature three different acts.
And for the first year, MOSAIQUES will also present some daytime FREE activities on Saturday afternoon : a lunchtime gig by Laura Cahen, Blick Bassy discussing his novel ‘Le Moabi Cinema’, and a film screening. Those events will be free but ticketed, with tickets available on Eventbrite.
On Fri 14th VAUDOU GAME will be celebrating the release of their second album of feverish Togo funk, KIDAYÚ. They are accompanied on the bill by uncategorisable, internationalist collective KEFAYA (ahead of the release of their debut album Radio International) and the “Turkish turbo-folk” of THE ODD BEATS.
Already announced to headline Sat 15th are ACID ARAB (LIVE), unveiling a brand-new live show and taking their dialogue between house and techno and Eastern musical traditions to a new level on debut album Musique de France. Also appearing on Saturday is the ‘El Mordjane duo’ featuring SOFIANE SAIDI (who also features on Acid Arab’s album) and TIM WHELAN, one of the founders of world fusion legends Transglobal Underground, and a third act still to be announced. The line-up for the Saturday evening will be completed by Afro Pop singer-songwriter YASMIN KADI,
