Zaho de Sagazan
will open the Festival
Zaho de Sagazan has a singular, powerful voice, the kind that makes our hair stand on end.
A deep timbre carried by electronic rhythms that blend Berlin techno and French electronica.
Moving from whispers to screams, the 23-year-old artist plays, tells and dissects human failings on lyrics in French of trenchant sincerity. Her words, draped in powerful melodies of subtle melancholy, plunge us into a shared intimacy, where we taste the delicious freedom to dance, think and move.
Alongside her drummer Tom Geffray, Zaho delivers modern Krautpop inspired by the likes of Koudlam and Autumn. Alongside the madness of Catherine Ringer or Brigitte Fontaine, there always comes a moment when she returns to sit with her eyes closed at her piano, the faithful ally of her creations.
