The French Institute in Bulgaria organized a concert of the groups Filetta and Eva Quartet on the 20th of February in the "Bulgaria" Hall. The event was personally opened by H. E. Mr. Eric Lebédel, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the French Republic in Bulgaria.

The concert is the creation of Jean-Claude Acquaviva from the Polyphonic ensemble A Filetta in cooperation with the Eva Quartet. The repertoire that the two formations presented to us in the evening showed its trajectory over the past few years and included compositions of Bruno Coulais and Jean-Claude Acquaviva. In them, the male (A-filetta) and female (Eva Quartet) voices fit in perfect harmony, a combination of tenderness and some harshness of timbre, with an easily recognizable origin - wild, mountainous, mysterious lands, that create amazing harmonic and rhythmic tales. It is a beautiful trip from East to West, in which the hearts of the Mediterranean Sea, the Caucasus and the Balkans pulse at the same pace.

The concert was realized with the assistance of the Corsican territorial community and the "Armeec" insurance company.

After that, the audience had the opportunity to see the Polifonik Street Art exhibition by Julien de Casabianca, a Corsican visual artist and film director, in the gallery of "Bulgaria" Hall. Since the artist has launched his project in 2014- "Outtings", a street art and photography platform, he has been invited all over the world to present his photographs and works from the collections in the public domain.

His work is connected with the street, even his films such as: the short film La Nuit après la pluie (The Night after the Rain) in a script written especially by Gao Xingjian, Nobel Prize laureate for Literature, and the Passing by shot across the streets across Europe.

In addition to his exhibition in Sofia, the artist surprised us with two monumental collages - a turbot of the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra and a turbot of the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, and with two smaller collages on the wall of the Sofia City Art Gallery.

The cultural event ended with a cocktail filled with Corsican flavours and wine.

The material was provided by the French Institute in Bulgaria.
