Yessaï honors us with a visit to the 38 to present the music that resonates in his head. A wonderful opportunity to discover this award-winning artist in his musical intimacy. An evolving program to enhance the month of November, on Thursdays 2nd, 16th, 23rd & 30th.

"A pioneer of French 'next-gen' jazz who's sure to make a splash!" (Jazz News)
"With an ultimate commitment to honesty, his music is beautiful, complex, colorful and, far from being reductive, reduced to its most sincere expression" (Open Jazz)
"Yessaï is no longer at the stage of making promises. He makes them real on stage. (La Terrasse)

"I'm looking to compose a repertoire of musical cores which, rather than fixing what the music should be, can allow several potentialities to be imagined, and to arise freely through our three identities. It's a constant challenge to be able to welcome everyone's point of view, whether it seems slightly different or totally antagonistic to our own. The compositions must therefore be a reflection of a common source, from which all these potentialities spring."

Yessaï Karapetian: piano
David Paycha: drums
Damien Varaillon: double bass
