Take your pick from Vincent Peirani’s invitation to travel to the Far East, Frédéric Pattar’s dialogue with George Crumb, Zad Moultaka’s composition inspired by the Tibetan Book of the Dead, or Fred Pallem’s interpretation of François de Roubaix’s movie soundtracks! Go on a musical journey to Brazil, Portugal or Cairo or put on your dancing shoes for the wild and wonderful Bal de l’Afrique Enchantée – the Ile de France is your stage!

For its 40th edition, Festival d’Ile de France is coming back to Paris and surrounding areas (September 3 to October 9, 2016) and brings with it a sweet, sweet melange of classical, contemporary and international music.
