The Mona Bismark American Center is launching Summer House, from June 1 to October 1; an experience that will mix music, artistic performances and creations, food and cocktails in the heart of Paris.
The Mona Bismarck Center is Paris’ only non-profit venue entirely dedicated to the presentation of American creation and culture – thereby reinforcing the long-lasting Franco-American relation and emphasizing the United States’ international presence.
Throughout the season, Summer House will offer more than fifty electro-acoustic and electronic live events, sound performances and DJ sets. With a program ranging from traditional African-American music (jazz, blues, funk) to modern (hip hop, nu soul, r’n’b), alternative rock, electro, new wave and folk sounds, Summer House offers an exciting opportunity to discover the richness of American music. With Davjazz (Dj Set) – Territory (Concert) – NWPP 80’s Crew (Dj Set) – Sly Johnson (Dj Set) – DJ JP Mano (Dj Set).
Thursday June 8 2017 – Ruthie Foster
Her music, borrowing from folk, soul, blues, rock and gospel, is an essential addition to the Paris New York Heritage Festival, which exists to celebrate African-American music! The small rural town of Gause, Texas, had no chance of keeping Ruthie Foster’s legendary vocal power to itself. Described by Rolling Stone as “pure magic to see and listen to,” Foster has developed a unique cross-genre sound. From her church choir to touring with the Blind Boys of Alabama and the US Navy Orchestra, Ruthie follows her desires while remaining attached to authentic music.
Stay tuned for more incredible performances!
