With a five years experience of intensive musical programming (Olympic Café, Les Trois Frères, Point Ephémère) especially in the middle of the Goutte d'Or district, Paris, Blaise Merlin set up L’Onde & Cybèle which purpose is to target a ground where not enough cultural actors act : - Supporting an artistic creation in a way to constantly promote meeting between public, professionals and territories ; - Setting up dialogue between arts (popular, erudite, improvised music, theatre, poetry, dance, circus, visual arts…) according to a demanding professional ethic. L’Onde & Cybèle works on the development and assertion of an artistic identity in a spirit of invention defying all identity closures, breaking borders between writing and improvising, the popular and the scientific, genres and generations.L’Onde & Cybèle produces and organizes two festivals as well as creations spreading regionally, nationally and internationally. .

Rhizomes (in green spaces of the 18th district, Paris, and of Seine-Saint-Denis). Created in 2002, Rhizomes festival organizes free open-air concerts in the 18th district green spaces. In this context, L’Onde & Cybèle set up artistic workshops since 2007 for young people from disadvantaged districts listed in the Politique de la Ville's programRhizomes festival tends to put a light on artists having a rich cultural history and affirming a singular poetic vision through their encounters. Thoses who combinate virtuosity with roots, freedom with necessity. Their work is directly originated from the social and cultural prolific life of the districts. The program presents a large panel of groups and soloists who embody both the emerging scene and well-known artists for young and aged people. Our goal is to arouse public’s surprise and discovery by mixing genres and styles blurring musical and geographical boundaries like slam and double bass for the public of the Square Léon, coppers and conches for the public of Rachmaninov Square, free jazz in the Montmartre Museum’s garden, malian traditional rythms at the Arènes de Montmartre… Rhizomes Festival supports a vision based on a very special proximity between public and artists.
