water in all languages is a source of life and fertility. Can we live on fresh air (and water)? This is one of the questions that the Festival of Flanders has put to the Brussels choir Shanti! Shanti! and to the Jeunesses Musicales of Mons-Borinage which bring together around forty children of all nationalities to sing living water, love and passion. Two musicians join forces with the children to write, dream up and put on this heart-felt choral show which encourages creativity and sharing. The Liège composer Véronique Delmelle calls on three instrumentalists from the Musiques Nouvelles ensemble and the Iranian composer Osama Abdulrasol, virtuoso of the qanûn (a cross between a harp and a zither), is accompanied by a world music trio for two unforgettable evenings.
A production of Fondation Mons 2015.
