Classically trained pianists Rami Khalife of Lebanon and Francesco Tristano Schlime of Italy and Luxembourg will perform at La Maison Francaise. Accompanying them will be DJ Aymeric Westrich of France.
Mixing influences of classical contemporary music and jazz with electronic beats, Francesco Schlime, Rami Khalife, and Aymeric Westrich create original compositions with an electro-acoustic sound that audiences connect to on many levels. This unified trio breaks barriers with a big bang. They have played at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona, Spain, the Jazz-Festival of Trier, Germany, the Transmusicales Festival of Rennes, France, La Panera Center for Contemporary Art in Lleida, Spain, and at the STRP Festival of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. They are currently working on an album, scheduled for release in 2008.
