Atrium 360°

 

The English-born, France-based singer-songwriter Piers Faccini, who creates “captivating, quietly insistent” music (Wall Street Journal) in the vein of Nick Drake infused with a global outlook, brings his newest project to the Atrium as part of the France Rocks Festival. Inspired by the rich medieval history of his Mediterranean surroundings, I Dreamed an Island is a fascinating collection of songs drawing on Western, Arabic, and Byzantine influences. Imagining how a Provençal madrigal might sound closer to the mode of an Arabic maqam, or how words in English could be put to melodies sung with microtones of a Turkish taqsim, Faccini crosses folk and world music genres, transforming John Martyn into Ali Farka Touré, Pentangle into a Tunisian wedding band, and a Sicilian ciaccona into a Tuareg desert riff.

 

Presented in collaboration with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Bureau Export, and the France Rocks Festival
