OASIS (Olivier Abbasi Sound In Sound) Concert

FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present an exceptional concert with international musicians at La Maison Française at 7:30 PM on November 3rd

The jazz harpist Isabelle Olivier continues her journey at the crossroads of cultures and music with her new projet: OASIS (Olivier Abbasi Sound In Sound), which is born from her meeting with the great American jazz guitarist of Pakistani origin Rez Abbasi.

This album «OASIS» was acclaimed both by the international press and the public, who came to applaud the projet from Paris to New York, as well as at the DC Jazz Festival in Washington and the Field Museum in Chicago, where the audience numbered in thousands. After 14 concerts of the firest tour, they enthusiastically continue their music on both sides of the Atlantic.

« The musicians fuse groove and improvisation, and perform with a kind of measured steadiness that only could be delivered by their highly skilled hands... Warm, intimate and challenging all at once, OASIS is a remarkably natural record. » Denise Sullivan - DownBeat
 

 

About the artists: 

Genre-blending guitarist Rez Abbasi and harpist Isabelle Olivier joyfully combine forces on OASIS. Leading from traditional repertoire to time-and space tripping avant-garde, the musicians fuse groove and improvisation, and perform with a kind of measured steadiness that only could be delivered by their highly skilled hands... Warm, intimate and challenging all at once, OASIS is a natural pairing of two pros making beautiful music as a trio with Michael Sarin.

 

Health safety protocol:

Proof of vaccination for everyone over 12 will be required to enter the embassy grounds. Masks are required for everyone. All necessary measures are taken, including but not limited to: controlled capacity, frequent cleaning of high traffic area, circulation patterns and safe social distancing throughout La Maison Française.
