Here we go again for the latest version of a local concert and “Playing for Change” day, 2016. We’re proud to participate for the 5th time in this solidarity venue!!!
Throughout the afternoon you can discover the “Playing For Change” music schools through photos & videos. Come & listen to the children’s compositions, their appreciations of th schools, & understand the positive change that the schools provide for these children...
This year we’re working with "La Grangette" in Montbrun Bocage, where we’ll welcome you to this friendly & relaxed space. Our thanks are also due to “L’Association Bongo”, based in Daumazan, for their participation in the organisation of this artistic & humanitarian day. As you can see, you can expect the usual variety and surprises...

As in the previous years, our PFC day encourages its visitors to actively participate... We propose workshops for children including sculpture & music. Your youngsters can discover, touch, try thing out, create, & generally enjoy themselves.
Solo Bambara will show children the bases for creating objects using simple tools such as sandpaper & a rasp.
Mohammad & Ahmad KARKOUSH, two brothers,both potters originally from Alep in Syria will be demonstrating their art & methods; young & old can discover & enjoy the magic of the potter’s wheel.
On the musical side, the afternoon will be underlined by an acoustic duo with Accordeon and Cahon. You can discover traditional instruments, & experiment with sounds we’d like to let children touch & create sounds themselves...
And of course, there’ll be tales, games, & shows to make people smile & wonder...
Children’s activities start at 15h30 & finish around 19h, so you can spend the day with us in a family context...
For adults, we have a great surprise:
At 16h MANOJ DUBEY, a disciple of the classical music school of Benares, (Varanasi Gharana) will present a singing workshop in classical Indian singing. He worked with Channulal Mishra, & confirmed his musical abilities in the Benares Hindu University. He teaches singing & tablas at Varanasai & Dharamsala, throughout the year, & works in Raga, Kheyal & Dhrupad, also Ghazals...
From 18h onwards, we’ll enter more into the musical world, with the girls of Dou Manouche as their name suggests, they’ll present Gypsy msuic, with violin & guitar...
After a little break, to appreciate some wonderful Syrian cuisine, we’ll get back to the music with a classical European duo, SUONANDO, 2 German musicians who express their love of music through the piano & cello they’ll take us to the world of Couperin, Chopin, Fauré & others, with lightness & great joy.
At 21h a sparkly and impressive fireshow will amaze you before we make way for
FERGUS Mc KAY & NOTHING CONCRETE BANDOLINO. These experienced musicians have played all over Europe, with various musical styles & musicians from Scotland to Serbia, they’ve been searching for new ideas & sounds, & will take you to a land of good humour & “joie de vivre”, with also a touch of refreshing irony.
To round off the evening, local musicians & guests will be up on the stage for a jam session well in the spirit of Playing for Change. Musicians from many countries, diverse & varied, playing together to develop positive musical energy with & for you.... the “Change Brigade”.
