Aux Âmes etc.
It is not a group, it is a place to play and meet.
Aux Âmes etc is an invitation whose starting point is the swing, the groove with words motivated by sense and poetry: “Poète, vos papiers !” sang Léo Ferré.
One of the driving forces is the de-partitioning of genres and styles. pop-songs, spoken word, rap, literature, poetry…
Each speaker, singer, storyteller, spoonerist or musician offers their writings and their challenges. Confrontation, encounter, desire to mix or not!
It’s a common stage therefore for sharing a revisited cabaret.

The first edition was recorded by Homerecords in 2011 under the title ‘Aux âmes etc… Hip-Pop-Song-Citadine Poetry’
“A typical project, Aux âmes etc...takes the form of an intergenerational tavern where artists coming from different horizons mingle genres (hip hop, urban poetry, pop, reading ...) with a view to extracting the essential lifeblood of words: the groove. Said, read, sung, shouted in French or English, the words escape in the same poetic spirit: essential impulsion with several songs with different themes (sex, religion, the state of the world and all its complications).
Hip-Pop-Song-Citadine Poetry is an album a bit nebulous, but totally adventurous: an unlikely meeting place of artists as different (on paper) l'Ami Terrien, Tout est Joli/All is Pretty or Michel Debrulle.
Aux âmes etc ... Makes a definitive statement: never underestimate the power of words."
