Un récital de Françoise Atlan autour de son repertoire de prédilection : les romances judéos-espagnoles et les chants arabo-andalous.
Un rendez-vous à ne pas manquer !
Françoise Atlan (born in France in 1964) is a Moroccan singer. She is a Sephardic Jew and performs songs from the Spanish Jewish (Ladino) and North African traditions.
Françoise Atlan started singing with a professor in 1985. Considered as one of the best performers of Sephardic romances, a singer who possesses a quality of voice that brings greater authenticity to the music. Her performances are the result of exhaustive musicological research, and she shows the highest respect for the established traditions of the genre. Her Eastern Jewish roots and her thorough knowledge of Andalusian tradition have enabled her to develop an unmistakable, highly expressive style which combines vocal technique and Sephardic sensibility - the rich heritage of the Jews expelled from Spain in 1492.
Françoise Atlan won the Villa Medicis in 1998 and worked three years on the Arab-Andalusian repertoire from Fes (Morocco). Since then, she has played in numerous countries and collaborated with various artists, include flamenco guitarist Juan Carmona and the Chemiranis Brothers.
