L is a young French artist, author, composer, and performer. She chose a simple letter as her stage name; she lets the public into the complexity of her heart thanks to her very personal songs. The music in her first album, ‘Premières Lettres,’ takes its roots in traditional French music, with which she mixes rock, trip-hop, and tango. This unique mix is what makes L such a powerful singer.
5.30 – 7.00pm
It all started in flat 74 in the cité d’Empalot, Toulouse. Four flatmates are playing around in their living room, trying to combine everyone’s skills. A DJ with a soft spot for drum ‘n’ bass, a classical pianist, a swing guitarist on whose notes a rapper, scratcher, and singer surf. Ever since, these four artists passionate about different types of music have been creating their own universe, born from the encounter of hip-hop and electro swing, in which break-beat and crafty songs can be found side by side.
