The Des Rives & Des Notes festival 2018

The Des Rives & Des Notes festival runs from Thursday 28 June through to Sunday 8 July at the Espace Jéliote, spreading to the “Village” and the riverside Bourdeu Park in Oloron for the 2nd long weekend.

What do we have in store for you in 2018? Well, programming for this anniversary festival includes…

* musicians whose careers are taking off, such as the soul group, Kimberose with its young vocalist Kim Kitson, multi-instrumentalist Jowee Omicil playing his Creole groove, and last year’s Oloron Tremplin winner guitarist Tom Ibarra, who is touring Europe at just 18 after being voted the first ever LetterOne Rising Jazz Star.

* one-off concerts for our Oloron audience – Harold López Nussa & El Comité – an all-star Cuban line-up, the ethereal compositions of Japanese pianist Emiko Minakuchi, not to mention the long-awaited return of one of Senegal’s top kora players, Ablaye Cissoko.

* we are proud to stage for the first time three world-renowned jazz groups– the charismatic composer, pianist and arranger Carla Bley in trio, another trio, that of one of Europe’s greatest pianists, Enrico Pieranunzi, who will shed new light on Debussy, and the drummer most in demand on the world jazz scene today, Mark Guiliana, with his quartet.

Jazz rings out over Oloron to usher in the summer!
