There is something so naked and honest with folk music because of its simplicity while the void/negatives in the music could be subtle, suggestive and dark. The contradiction draws Narbi to explore the folklore path while staying in and away from the comfort in the giant’s footstep. Narbi Ghenc, a moniker comes from an anagram, sounding a bit different, a bit fictional and a bit exotic. Perhaps this is also what Narbi is trying to do with his folk music. “I hope my music could take you somewhere, be it imaginary land or a real place; at some time, future, past, going backward, forward or frozen. When the music finishes, you come back to the present, and this is it.”

Philippe Foch :
Driven by a rabid desire for encounter and exploration which far from dwindling with age seems on the contrary to sharpen as time passes, Philippe Foch, drummer by trade, has been honing in for 30 years to the core of an intensely unstable territory of sound, fleeing all form of routine or status quo, ceaselessly questioning what he has gleaned and reinventing his musical language.
Didier Petit :
Didier petit never loses the taste for risk and imagination. In 2009 he create the East West collective in Hong Kong for the French May Festival to create a bridge between two cultures. Since then he travel often in China. Since 2010, he is the artistic consultant for the Observatoire de l’Espace (the art science laboratory of CNES) and for the Sideration Festival.
