Through melodies that are at once festive and melancholy, linked to the stories of everyday life (distant loves, passionate loves, departures, exile, celebrations...), tongues are loosened and music is linked.

With a deep return to their roots, Mahaleb, through song and music, weave musical relationships between two languages and two repertoires. Guided by the rich sound of their instruments, the trio makes popular tunes, arranged with finesse and authenticity, resonate beyond borders.

The Mahaleb trio, formed in 2015, was born out of Carole Marque-Bouaret's personal journey in search of her Armenian roots in Turkey. It all starts with a blind spot, a gap that needs filling. In her family, people come from far away, but they don't talk about it much. Her maternal grandparents, who arrived in Marseille in the 1920s, were Armenian, yet their mother tongue was Turkish. The singer and musician explores this paradox on her travels through Turkey and Armenia, and in her musical encounters and friendships with Turkey's minorities (Gypsies, Zaza, Kurds and Armenians).

The Parsi Parla festival was born of the desire to bring Persian artistic culture, its music, its instruments, its literature and its colours to as many people as possible.


Free of charge.
