Live @ La Mediatheque

Based around the duo of singer and harpist Mélanie Virot and Maël Salètes, who plays guitar and the jeli n’goni (a Malian lute), Lyon’s L’Étrangleuse have just released their third album Dans le lieu du non-où. Their hypnotic songs draw on traditional French and African styles, DIY punk, and post-rock, sometimes sounding like a raw, folky Stereolab.

Music Rendezvous

Every month La Médiathèque’s art deco listed room transforms into a captivating venue offering immersive live shows, creating an intimate experience that brings guests and French artists closer together.

Organised in partnership with Le Bureau export, the Music Rendezvous series focuses on French-speaking music in all its variety. It is an opportunity to showcase France's young up-and-coming artists who are generally not active on the local British scene.

The series was launched in February 2017 with a solo performance by Mathieu Boogaerts on guitar and voice. He was followed by pop singer Robi in June 2017, and a string of young artists such as Cléa Vincent, La Féline, Laura Cahen, as well as Malik Djoudi and Voyou in 2018.

To find out more about these artists and to listen to their music (and much more), check out the Music section of our digital platform Culturetheque.

All gigs are £7 / £5 members & concessions. They are followed by a Q&A with the artist, in French and English. Tickets are available on the French Institute's website.

Tuesday 12 Nov 2019 | Stranded Horse

Normandy-born Yann Tambour has recorded three albums as Stranded Horse, which make elegant, intricate connections between Nick Drake-like finger-picked folk and traditional West African music. Having built his own, lighter koras for travelling with, his latest creation is the ‘formikora’, which features harp levers. This is a debut UK show for his new four-piece including French and Malian musicians.
