A mad and urgent desire to share, exchange, enrich and discover each other... This is how this festival was created, around Persian music and, more broadly, influences and dialogue with the arts of the East...

For this second edition, the festival is fortunate to be able to count on a renowned godfather and godmother:

Rana Farhan, an Iranian artist with a haunting voice and a timeless bluesy style, will be the patron of the 2nd Parsi-Parla festival on 14 and 15 June 2024! Born in Iran and now conquering New York, Rana fuses classical Persian poetry with blues and contemporary jazz, creating a unique genre all her own. Her work, notably her groundbreaking album "I Return", has captivated listeners the world over, forging a strong link between East and West. An emblematic figure of Iranian music, Rana Farhan was also celebrated in the award-winning film "No One Knows About Persian Cats".

André Manoukian, our beloved godfather of the first edition, will be with us again to light up our 2nd edition, on 14 and 15 June 2024! Born in Lyon into a family of Armenian origin, Manoukian began playing the piano at a very early age before going on to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. His remarkable career as a composer, arranger for icons such as Liane Foly, Aznavour and Janet Jackson, and creator of film scores is testament to his exceptional talent. A renowned music expert, founder of the Cosmojazz festival, innovator with start-up MatchTune and columnist, Manoukian continues to inspire with his passion for improvisation and his love of music.
