Each musician in this cross-cultural sextet is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Their message is one of emancipation and fraternity, their music is imbued with folk traditions, old and new. Singing in their mother tongues (Turkish, Armenian, English and French), they tell the story of an inner home, accustomed to exile, cultural blending and renewal.
Created in Paris in 2012, Collectif Medz Bazar has travelled extensively through Europe, and performs regularly in North America and in the Middle-East. Fervent lovers of gatherings and exchange, at ease with all audiences, Medz Bazar’s musicians perform with the same enthusiasm in major cities like New York, Diyarbekir, Montreal, Yerevan and Berlin, as in remote villages reaching from the Cévennes mountains in France to the Munzur valley in Anatolia.
