We had a lot of sun and a nice spring flavour throughout this 4th edition of the festival Les Detours de Babel, which had chosen this year to explore the theme Music & Nature.
More than 20,000 people attended or participated to the 80 events of this latest edition : creations, concerts, shows, brunches, dancing-parties, performances, installations, discussions, workshops, etc...
The Centre International des Musiques Nomades warmly thanks all the professional and amateur artists, musicians and composers who participated, the many and always curious audiences, all the professional, institutional and private bodies who support us, the media, as well as the staff of our many partners and, last but not least, all the volunteers who gave their contribution to build a successful and sweet festival in Grenoble and in the department.
The 5th edition of the Festival will be held from March 17th to April 4th 2015; its theme will be "exile."
The CIMN is already actively preparing this next rendez-vous with musical creation, passing new commissions, identifying new talents, organizing residencies and participatory projects, etc... And a new season of concerts and exciting events beginning next October.
