LES NUITS DU MONDE

(V)ivre de musique

EDITO

There can be no human society without music! It is a fact: no culture is unaware of this singular alchemy of sounds. Whether it is religious or secular, whether it resounds in a concert hall or in the street, whether it is a work of art or accompanies pastoral activity, it animates and gives rhythm to our lives. The health crisis, and the long interruption of public concerts, has made us fully aware of this: listening to or playing music is not just "entertainment", it is an essential social activity that nourishes us.

(V)ivre de musique: the theme of this festival raises a series of existential questions... How does music allow us to exchange with our fellow human beings while promoting our individual development? How does it often allow us to better apprehend our daily world, sometimes to extract ourselves from it by provoking a certain emotional and spiritual intoxication?  How do those who practice it, here or elsewhere, bring it to life and manage to live from it?

The Nuits du Monde 2021 invite you to experience as many strong and essential moments around this rich theme as there are concerts, conferences, meetings and films. Concert music, ritual music, classical or popular, composed or improvised, vehement or intimate... So many opportunities to stimulate an imagination open to the discovery of the diversity of world cultures.
