"Music salon"... This is an expression of oriental origin to designate the concert "at home"... A whole art of welcoming and meeting, where music is the main guest. With this new programme, the ADEMs invite you to your home, in their music centre or in the homes of some of their partners in Geneva, to experience moments of exchange around various world music and dance. Exceptional artists come to you to share their knowledge but also the life that goes with it, what we sometimes call "tradition". In short, everything that animates their daily lives. During these hushed concerts and practical workshops, come and discover their history and the stories they have to tell us.
