Starry nights in Montauban

To start the weekend in style, “Les Résonances de Septembre” offers a classical music concert in Montauban. From 6:30 p.m., the notes will resound in the Hall of the Departmental Council of Tarn et Garonne. “A suspended musical moment, full of sweetness and dreams, between dusk and dawn… Sublime alliance of the crystalline, twirling sound of the transverse flute, the suave and shimmering voice of the soprano and a few piano notes , scattered…”, explains Tarn-et-Garonne Arts and Culture in a press release.

Described as “mysterious” or even “melancholy”, the show invites spectators on a journey “within the bewitching night and the luminous stars, starry diamonds…” Note that this concert is offered as part of the opening of the exhibition photography by Anne Desplantez, “We all have a story”.

Duo Baldango in Bruniquel

The event continues on Saturday September 17 with the duo Baldango in Bruniquel. From 6 p.m., violin, guitar and voice will illuminate the castle with their sweet sounds. On the program: popular music from around the world. The opportunity to discover or rediscover a program completely rearranged by the duo.

They will alternate between cumbia, Balkan music, bluegrass, calypso, maloya or even gypsy jazz. A touch of French songs and blues will also be offered by the Baldango duo. The association specifies: “The pieces chosen by Baldango were sculpted by travels and encounters: while the violinist was doing her ranges in the Breton fest-noz, the globe-trotting guitarist scoured the halls of Latin America”.

Mama Godillot in Cayriech

Later in the evening, direction Cayriech. From 8:30 p.m., Mama Godillot takes over the stage which will be set up at the Arboretum with her program of world music. The association then describes the musical phenomenon:

“Mama Godillot is the sweetness and character of a voice with Sicilian accents, the bewitching melodies of a guitarist and the impetuous rhythms of a percussionist without borders… A trunk full of sunshine, African trances, sweets from the islands. Brazil, Angola, Cape Verde, Reunion… Not even sore feet! We hop on the side of Cuba, we dance to our socks on a Sicilian waltz. We discover, we marvel, and we share this beauty, this richness of diversity offered to us by music from around the world”.

Cie Mauvais coton Circus in Ginals

On Sunday at 4 p.m., a bit of circus takes place at the Abbaye de Beaulieu de Ginals. The Mauvais coton Cirque company presents its show Culbuto. Young and old can then discover what the company is capable of. The association Tarn-et-Garonne Arts and Culture clarifies that the show was written with the “tumbling mast”. It is “a unique machine with chronic instability”.

“Each one, each one. Both feet on the sea. A man experiences his limits, has fun titillating his life, and plays to hold. With the heart and the elements. At 360°. With young and old. Swing and celebrate the “instant. A proposal for a sweet game where it will be a question… Of accepting, of clinging on enthusiastically, of oscillating together on the unknown and of learning to fly, in case…”, can we read in the press release.

Mbraia to Montbeton

Last show of the weekend. On Sunday September 18 at 6 p.m., the Mbraia group will perform at the Espace Jean Bourdette in Montbeton. They will then perform their “Bal rock occitan” repertoire. Guitars, cajón and voices will resonate during a concert. “Paulin Courtial (guitars, voice) and Arnaud Cance (percussion, voice) draw from the material of popular Occitan song an energy that triggers the cogs of the dancing machine”, explains the association.

To dance to Occitan music, an initiation workshop to traditional Occitan dances is scheduled on Sunday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Children and adults will then be able to put into practice the steps they will have learned during the Mbraia concert.
