Le guitariste Rodolphe Burger sera à l’abbaye de Noirlac, vendredi 19 avril, pour présenter un projet musical inédit. La veille, il fera partie des musiciens qui, au Palais d’Auron, rendront hommage à son ami Jacques Higelin.

He was companion of Jacques Higelin, Alain Bashung, Rachid Taha. With Kat Onoma, his band for almost twenty-five years, he has also explored uncrowded lands of rock … And today, he likes nothing more than to multiply the heterogeneous musical experiences.

For sure, Rodolphe Burger is an unclassifiable musician. It is the poster of the Printemps de Bourges Friday, April 19, with, as right, a creation for the least singular since it was especially designed for the abbey of Noirlac, near Saint-Amand-Montrond.

For the Republican Berry , the guitarist talks about his taste for the acoustics of religious buildings, the trigger that rock music of the 1960s triggered, the festival he created in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, his hometown in Alsace, or his projects with the jazzman Jeff Blood Ulmer and the Breton singer Erik Marchand.
He also evokes the fraternal bonds he had forged with the man he always calls affectionately “Jacques”. Thursday, April 18, he will also be on the stage of the Palais d’Auron, along with fifteen other musicians, for a concert in tribute to the artist, who died in 2018.

You will perform in an atypical place, for a musical festival, which is the abbey of Noirlac. What are you going to propose to the public of Printemps de Bourges that will go to this place?

It’s a chance to play at the abbey, which is an extraordinary place. I visited it, in view of this concert, and I made a proposal very related to this place. A first time in the abbey, a little thing quite acoustic, with bassist Sarah Murcia, who used to accompany me. And then, in trio, always with Sarah and the percussionist Christophe Calpini, a second concert in the refectory, where I will present new things, that I will play for the first time and which will appear on my new album, which will be released very soon.

The one French film you need to see this month

If there’s one film you have to see in France this month then “Le Chant du Loup”, starring some of France’s most famous actors is the one. French movie experts Lost in Frenchlation explain why.

Submarine films are a subgenre of war films that are able to heighten intensity due to their unique setting.They are able to go beyond the normal tensions of the average action film by highlighting the close quarters and removal from civilization.In addition to the claustrophobia and isolation, there’s a number of things that can go wrong that far down, from machinery fires to decompression sickness.

Over 150 submarine films have been made in the past 100 years.This genre is popular with French and Americans alike, leading to successful films such as The Hunt for Red October in America and now Le Chant du Loup (The Wolf’s Call) in France, and even a cultural overlap in the English-language French-Belgian film Kursk.

Le Chant du Loup stars César Award winning actor, Omar Sy, who became one of France’s most popular actors after his role in Les Intouchables.

Mathieu Kassovitz of Amelie fame also stars in this film.He is popular in France and abroad, earning him numerous awards from Cannes to Chicago.

Le Chant du Loup is “the wolf’s call” the sound of a sonar that can be detected by the main character of the film, an acoustic analyst known as “the golden ear”.This film provides insight into French politics and warfare, fueled by director Antonin Baudry’s personal experiences from his time as a diplomat and advisor to the prime minister.
