Georges Moustaki died on May 23, 2013 but did not leave us.
He gave me the taste of the song, the songs, the desire to write and sing them.
We decided to revisit his repertoire and propose a new journey through his texts and compositions. It was necessary to make a choice as the matter is vast. There are essential songs and others that are favorites ...
The show is much more than a concert of songs by Georges Moustaki.
Through these, the public and musicians will live the artist's career since his birth and adolescence in Alexandria, his rise in Paris, his stay in Brussels, in Saint Germain des Prés, the meeting of Brassens, Piaf , Barbara, May 68, and the arrival of success with "Le Métèque".
Then, it will be Moustaki citizen of the world, of Europe in Japan, and all Latin America and particularly Brazil. La Música Popular Brasileira with bossa, samba, forró among others, and Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto, Baden Powell, Vinícius de Moraes, or Caetano Veloso and Chico Buarque ... And then his favorites - Bahia - and his friends - Jorge Amado and Zelia.
It will also be the engaged Moustaki, freedom-loving and defender of democracy when Spain is still under Franco, Greece led by colonels, Argentina by the junta of Videla, Chile Pinochet and Brazil under the dictatorship military ... the Moustaki of the permanent revolution. Mikis Theodorakis's friend, Paco Ibanez, Astor Piazolla ...
Testimonials, anecdotes, extracts of biographies, press articles between the songs, all in a rhythm removed so that the songs do not wait.
