Paris / New-York Heritage Festival 2019 takes over Paris with a new edition to be discovered from June 12 to 16. On the menu? Concerts, screenings and debates over African, African-American, Latin-American and autochthon arts.

Johannesburg, Paris, New-York, Montréal, Vancouver and Los Angeles. All in all, 6 world-famous cities welcome the event “Paris / New-York Heritage Festival” between June 6 and July 6, 2019.

It’s been already four years that Paris / New York Heritage Festival has been providing a historic and current initiatory journey in the heart of the African, African-American, Latin-American and autochthon arts, stopping by six cities. The event pays tribute to these major arts from the 20th century that deeply mark the world’s musical culture.

In Paris, head to the Canadian Cultural Center, the Centre FGO Barbara and the Mona Bismarck American Center from June 12 to 16 to discover a whole bunch of concerts, screenings and debates.

The program in Paris:

June 12, 2019: Screening / Panel – Movie “Rumble, The Indians who rocked the World”
Canadian Cultural Center: 130 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, 75008 Paris

A chapter in the history of American music, as profound as is essential and yet largely unknown until now: that of indigenous influence. Through the portrait of musical icons, Rumble shows how these talented musicians have helped shape the soundtracks of our lives”.

The film will be followed by a moment of exchange with French and Canadian speakers on the influence of indigenous culture on contemporary music, and more broadly, on the blending of African, Latin and European cultures.

June 13, 2019: Concert – Flem + Vieux Farka Touré
FGO Barbara: 1 rue Fleury, 75018 Paris

The "Nomades" Group was born from a collaboration between the French rapper Flem, and Vieux Farka Touré, nicknamed by the American media the Hendrix of the Sahara, son of the legendary Ali Farka Touré. Flem has worked with artists such as Dany Dan of the "Wise Street Poets" and DJ Duke of the "Assassin" group.
