The French jazz group "Les Voyageurs de l’Espace" (The Space Travellers) is playing for Jockey Club Street Music Series’ Try-Out Gig on 24 September at Comic Home Base.
The Street Music Series co-presented by the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Kung Music Workshop have been sharing the passion for music since 2009, filled with not only enthusiastic local audiences but also visitors around the world. The event has also been listed as ‘not-to-be-missed’ by Lonely Planet. Come join Les Voyageurs de l’Espace for a French musical immersion.
These space travelers are playing with imaginative hybridization and artistic forms. The ensemble is born of a will to investigate the fields of contemporary and improvised music. Around Didier Petit’s lunar cello, the singer and vocalist Claudio Solal and the percussionist Philippe Foch are giving birth to an oneiric universe.
