OPENING CONCERT + DJ SET Money Penny
10 december • Manoir Savoie, Arc 1950
In the space of ten years, Lisa & Naomi, the twin sisters behind the name Ibeyi, have confirmed that their music does not echo anything known.
They are the daughters of a Creole world, of a permanent back and forth between Europe, Americas and Africa. They are the children of a melting pot of cultures that brings together watercolors of electro, hip hop, folk with the mystique of Yoruba songs. Over the course of their three albums, their opposing sensibilities naturally complement each other: Lisa infuses the melodies and words while Naomi finds the rhythms, pulses and tempos. After international success, having rubbed shoulders with their idols (Beyoncé, Prince, Quincy Jones) and collaborating with some of the most talented artists of our time (saxophonist Kamasi Washington, Chilly Gonzales, Me'shell Ndegeocello, La Mala ...)
the ambition of SPELL 31, their last opus, is to affirm themselves completely, to celebrate the body and the spirit, the carnal and the mystery: "The sky encloses the stars".
11 december • Patatrak, Arc 2000
Yuksek comes from the new wave of French electro, a teeming scene that represents, in a way, the "second act" of French Touch. A pianist by training and with a solid reputation as a producer (Justice, Daft Punk, Vitalic), Pierre-Alexandre Busson also maintains a solid link with the cinema by composing among others for “Grégory” by Gilles Marchand, “En Thérapie" by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache or more recently for the anticipated adaptation of FabCaro’s comic strip, "Zaï Zaï Zaï Zaï" by François Desagnat, which had been the subject of a “music and cinema” masterclass at Les Arcs in 2021.
12 december • Manoir Savoie, Arc 1950
Johan Papaconstantino navigates from painting to music to create a global and inspired work. After his first EP 'Contre-Jour' and the surprise success of his cover of 'Les Mots Bleus', he is preparing the forthcoming release of his first LP Premier Degré. He exercises his versatility and sensitivity there, with titles that combine his electronic hip-hop influences and his Greek origins.
MIRA LU KOVACS
CONCERT : 12 december • Igloo, Arc 2000
CINÉ-CONCERT*: 13 december • Le Coeur d'Or, Bourg-Saint-Maurice
*open for all the festival goers.
What Mira Lu Kovacs has created both on stage and on record over the past few years is of such great stylistic variety that genre definitions are moot. A vagueness of some kind leaves room for the instrumental virtuosity, compositional originality and the stories told through her music. After three albums released under the stage name SCHMIEDS PULS and the spectacular experience of the supergroup 5KHD, she established herself as a master of her craft, rewarded with two Amadeus Austrian Music Awards, among other distinctions.
Mira Lu Kovacs will also perform on Monday afternoon during an intimate concert under the subdued glow of the dome of the Igloo, Arc 2000.
