Manila got a taste of the French electro scene with Superpoze, the first performer in a series of French cultural events lined-up for 2014.
Superpoze is a composer and beatmaker praised by audiences in many festivals in Europe such as les Vieilles Charrues, Festival de Montreux, and les Transmusicales.
As the first event of FrancoPhil, Superpoze performed with his pads and keyboards at the Black Market in Makati City on March 21 to an energized crowd.
Meanwhile, the French-Philippine cultural program in Manila better known as FrancoPhil, offers a range of acts for all types of audiences in its fourth year.
The Pockemon Crew pays tribute to cinema and the origins of hip-hop in New York during the 1940s through an electrifying dance performance on May 28.
Meanwhile, the highly anticipated French Film Festival returns in June to continue its almost two decades long reputation of bringing the best of French cinema to Filipino audiences.
With more than 13,000 attendees last year, FrancoPhil makes Fête de la Musique 2014 twice as big with musical acts playing at two different stages: one at the A-venue Open Parking Area in Makati and another at the Plaza Maestranza in Intramuros, Manila.
Classical music lovers will be treated to a concert by Quatuor Parisii String Quartet on June 10, while both young and old are invited to enjoy the comic and acrobatic antics of the Tête d’enfant Modern Circus Company in October.
Franco-Phil 2014 is organized by Alliance française de Manille and the Embassy of France, with the support of Rustan’s, Stores Specialists, Inc., Black Market, and Deezer. For more information, call 895-7585 or 0917-892-8968; email email@example.com; or log on to www.alliance.ph.
