Collectif Medz Bazar – Urban Diaspora Music (France-Armenia-Turkey)

Collectif Medz Bazar is a genre-breaking urban diaspora ensemble comprised of musicians belonging to Armenian, Turkish, French and American cultures.

Drawing from their own and from neighboring traditions, the members of Medz Bazar create original arrangements of folk music as well as compositions of their own, while tackling social issues and challenging political and cultural boundaries.

On stage, they offer a fruitful balance between tempered instruments and music from the modal traditions, between Middle-Eastern percussions and voices inspired by Asia Minor’s and Iran’s folk music, Caucasian Rabiz and songs of Thrace, together with Hip Hop, Swing, Chanson and Bluegrass.

Medz Bazar performs regularly in Europe, in the Middle-East, and in North America.

2019 will mark the release of their 3rd album this May as they venture out on yet another world tour, making appearances at SXSW (Austin, Texas), as well as performances in Portugal, France, Poland, Armenia, Turkey, Georgia, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
