Ben l’Oncle Soul Concert
19 May 2017| €62,50
It is on the stage of the Opéra Garnier that Ben l’Oncle Soul will perform his album “Under My Skin”, on 19th May.
Two years after “A coup de rêves”, Ben l’Oncle Soul has unveiled his third opus entitled “Under My Skin”. The album was released under the label Blue Note on 4th November 2016. It is in this album that Ben pays homage to the legendary crooner, Frank Sinatra. A project full of boldness which propels us into another dimension, where Soul, Blues, Reggae and Jazz meet. The French Soulman brings back some of the great standards of Jazz popularised by Frank Sinatra in modern and bright soul. In collaboration with Matthieu Joly (Neïmo) and Benjamin “Waxx” Heikimian (Naosol & The Waxx Blend), the artist of Caribbean descent delivers surprising sweet and savoury versions. True to himself, Ben l’Oncle Soul keeps this warmth in his voice, edgy emotions which transport us between Paris and New York. “The thing which touched me most in Sinatra’s work, is the lyrics” he explains. “I wanted to give these jewels a new jewellery box, to create bridges between genres and periods.” If he is completely detached from the original interpretation, Ben breathes his soul and his experiences into every word and every message of the songs which will never leave him from now on. The arrangements have been carefully worked to create a complete recomposition of settings, atmospheres and ambiances of each song.
Tickets are available at €62,50.
