4 exceptional artists finally together on stage

The enchanting singer-songwriter Sarah Lenka is known for her very personal interpretations, her hoarse tone and her unsettling voice. With her previous album "Women's legacy", the singer chose to pay tribute to the female cause by reinterpreting the songs of African-American slaves. Alone with their emotions, their lives, the blows, the abuses, too hard to express, they sang in resistance, let breathe a little life.

"Singing is a certain victory over abuse and silence," says Sarah Lenka.

In the tradition of Women's legacy, the Mahala project brings together committed women artists from different cultures.

For this new concert, Sarah Lenka invites the Franco-American guitarist-singer Natalia M. King, with her captivating voice between folk and blues, the enchanting Franco-Syrian flutist Naïssam Jalal and the singer Marion Rampal, best vocal artist at the Victoires du Jazz 2022.

Each of them carries a cultural heritage, a history, and this unexpected 100% female encounter mixes an acoustic folk sound with blues rhythms and the sounds of traditions and customs.

In the Alliance Française theater, where for 140 years, nationalities from all over the world have been sharing, these four artists with their uncommon sensitivity, surrounded by a guitar-bass-drums trio, will take you on a journey into the depths of intimacy. An evening of rare beauty!
