Gad Elmaleh

February 11, 2017

Gad Elmaleh is of Morrocan Sephardi Jewish descent and currently living and works in France. This unique and exotic cultural heritage has certainly given him a certain je ne sais quoi, and the stand-up-comedian and actor quickly has quickly risen to prominence as one of France's favourite funnymen since the debut of an autobiographical show in 1997.

Aretha Franklin

March 6, 2017

Aretha Franklin's importance cannot not be overstated. She is simply one of the greatest singers the world has ever seen. With a voice which can't be mistaken, her mammoth back catalogue includes the classics Respect, Think and (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. She was the first woman inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and even made a glorious cameo in The Blues Brothers.

Goran Bregovic

March 8, 2017

The Balkans have long been a melting pot of different cultures, witnessing centuries of clashes and co-habitation by Muslims, Orthodox Christians and Catholics. Its from this long tradition of diversity that Goran Bregovic draws his music, an electric mixture of gypsy brass bands, lilting folk balladry and tub-thumping marching music.

Tibet House Benefit 2017

March 16, 2017

Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Sufjan Stevens and more gather to pay tribute to avant-garde composer Philip Glass for his 80th birthday at the 30th anniversary of Tibet House, his iconic cultural center and educational institution, founded in 1987 to spread awareness about the country at the behest of the Dali Lama.

Anne-Sophie Mutter

April 2-May 2, 2017

Anne-Sophie Mutter has achieved much in her four-decade long music career, let alone being named of the greatest violin virtuosos of our time. She was awarded the esteemed Siemens Music Prize in 2008, was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in London at just 22-years old, and has received four Grammy awards for solo orchestral and chamber music performances.
