Babylon Orchestra at l’Alhambra
After an entire afternoon of inter-community celebrations in the foyers of the Grand Théâtre, we move to the Alhambra to welcome Babylon Orchestra. This orchestra, founded in 2016 around the encounter between East and West, puts music at the centre of cultural dialogue and integration. For Newroz, the day of renewal celebrated by Kurds, Afghans and Iranians, the orchestra invites the Iranian-born singer Michal Elia Kamal to join them.
