Violaine Cochard and TRAM des Balkans musicians join their talents to create a unique, popular and modern project.
TRAM des Balkans, a band of 5 musicians – singers with multi-cultural inspiration and communicative energy, has been defending since the last 15 years, “an open-minded music that can both be lived and danced”. Violaine Cochard, very active concert harpsichordist, embodies an open-minded Baroque aesthetic always thirsty of dialogues (among her collaborations: Edouard Ferlet, Louis Sclavis…).
TOCCATRAM is the encounter of two musical sensibilities, a dialogue between pieces separated by 4 centuries, a music that shatters stylistic constraints to reach the core: the pleasure of being together.
Unique and amazing work, TOCCATRAM is shaped with original compositions and very personal interpretations of Baroque pieces. This unclassifiable world music show takes us on a keen wandering across Europe and centuries of History.
