Rencontre Réseau on May 23, 2024

The ques­tion of the emer­gence of young artists is already a sub­ject in itself. But the emer­gence of young world music artists is tak­ing us into much wider ter­ri­to­ries and issues. In Que­bec as in France, beyond artis­tic and musi­cal cre­ation itself, World Music ques­tions the place of inter­cul­tur­al­i­ty, cross­breed­ing, the rela­tion­ship with dias­po­ras, with so-called tra­di­tion­al or indige­nous cul­tures, and how artis­tic cre­ation, and there­fore young artists, find their place in it. By its very nature, World Music opens us up to the many cul­tures and lan­guages that inhab­it the globe, whether from here or else­where. They find their place in a “glob­al” musi­cal pro­duc­tion that some­times tries to put them to one side, to make them invis­i­ble, or even to reduce them to their “com­mu­ni­ty” dimen­sion, for­get­ting in the process the uni­ver­sal emo­tion­al pow­er of music, as well as the nec­es­sary and salu­tary diver­si­ty of cul­tur­al signs. How are young world music artists emerg­ing in Que­bec and France ? In this com­mon space of the French-speak­ing world, where one lan­guage unites us while rec­og­niz­ing and valu­ing the mul­ti­lin­gual­ism of the major­i­ty of speak­ers, how can prac­tices and per­spec­tives from both sides of the Atlantic inter­sect and enrich each oth­er ? Is the rela­tion­ship with mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism the same ? How does the lat­ter influ­ence the abil­i­ty of these young artists to emerge ? What are the obsta­cles ? What bridges could be built between our con­ti­nents ? Pan­el under­way, bring­ing togeth­er pro­fes­sion­als from both sides of the Atlantic
