June 27, 2016 | By Francerocks

After a stand-room-only performance from Ayo last week, France Rocks Summerfest is proud to present the following FREE shows at Lincoln Center Atrium: Emel Mathlouthi on June 30th and Ginkgoa on July 7th.

Emel Mathlouthi
Thursday, June 30 @ 7:30PM, FREE

Emel Mathlouthi is also known for her role as a leading artist in the Arab Spring. She released her first album, Kelmti Horra (my word is free) in 2012, garnering lavish praise from critics and fans for her powerful vocals laid over a unique mix of North African rhythms and modern electronic beats. Her 2015 was prolific, including work on a new album with producer Valgeir Siggurdson and culminating with her solo performance at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony.

She comes from New York, he lives in Paris – her name is Nicolle Rochelle, his name is Antoine Chatenet and fighting against all the odds of their geographic destiny, they have found each other. Meeting by chance in a Parisian jazz club, Ginkgoa was born.
