The most French of all festivals, “XXF – Very Very French,” is in town!
French cover band, Nouvelle Vague will perform at MEB SURA Hall on Dec 16th.
Organized by Altus Arts and Culture, and supported by Institut Français Ankara; ‘XXF Festival – Very Very French’ will take place in Ankara for the first time!
A project by French musicians Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux, Nouvelle Vague skilfully blends the rebellious side of punk rock and intellectual depth of new wave with glamour and joy of bossa nova. Including extraordinary vocal talents such as Camille, Phoebe Killder, Nadeah, Melanie Pain and Liset Alea, the band became famous for their covers of world-famous artists like Joy Division, The Clash, Depeche Mode and Blondie. Their four albums released between 2004 and 2010 topped over one million sales and this led to band performing in many famous venus such as Royal Albert Hall in London, Olympia in Paris and Holywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Giving a break on album recordings in 2011, the band took a different direction and performed as part of shows and musicals directed by famous designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac.
