Of all the pun titles from jazz festivals (is there a competition?), Kind of Belou de Treignac (Corrèze) holds the pompom, where pianist Tony Hymas presents Pacific 345, before Himno de Mujeres Libres (hymn of free women) , before the Standing Rock resistance fighters, Davu Seru with the No Territory Band (the only concert in France, the most "jazz" of summer festivals), Riverdog ("teenage noise", that should give), the duo guitarist Hasse Poulsen and double bassist Hélène Labarrière, saxophonist Nathan Hanson and other afters relocated to Tarnac.The new municipality has halved its symbolic aid, the country is beautiful, we think, and not far away, L'Espace Rebeyrolle, in Eymoutiers, is presenting an Erro.Treignac exhibition, the most snobbish and trendy “the place to be” of the summer.Your nephews will envy you.Francis Marmande
