Figeac’s cultural cooperative, Ulysse Maison d’artistes, is offering an evening-concert full of promises this Friday, November 12 on the stage of the music school’s auditorium with two emerging artists on the bill: The Doug and ETAJ .
One year after the success of the two concerts of the Lotois group KKC Orchestra scheduled in the auditorium of the music school in the fall of 2020, the Figeacoise artist house Ulysses is back and is organizing a beautiful evening this Friday, with this time, two promising groups on the bill. “This evening concert is focused on discovery. For us, it is a bit of a nod to the Chapel where we were keen to introduce artists who are making their way at the national level. It is also really the moment to defend the artists, at a time when it is difficult everywhere to fill the rooms. In addition to the Covid, there is a thread to reweave with the public ”underlines Kalagan at the head of cultural cooperation.
An evening-concert around the text and for all audiences
In the first part, Ulysses is betting on youth by opening the stage to the brand new Lotois group ETAJ, winner of the Lot Amplifie 2021 departmental springboard (a system focused on identifying and supporting groups of contemporary music from Lot). “This is the first time that the group that has just taken the name ETAJ will perform. It’s his first scene actually. We came back this year to the Lot Amplifie jury and I fell in love with this group ”confides Kalagan who then headlining on The Doug, a singer-rapper from Clermont-Ferrand who comes to him to win a public prize at Printemps de Bourges. “It’s an evening of champions in fact since both have won a prize, one departmental, the other national. It’s an evening around the text. The Doug has a beautiful universe, he writes and sings his texts alone on stage, accompanying himself on the guitar. I had wanted to bring him in for a while. Might as well do it before it is too well known, now is the time to present it ”.
Organized as part of Student Week, this concert in the auditorium on Friday evening is a meeting resulting from a collective project dear to the heart of Ulysse Maison d’artistes. “The auditorium is a beautiful facility with a beautiful set. It is hot there and we are well seated! These are good conditions for discovering artists ”promises Ulysse
