Festa Occitana at La Meson 10 and 11 November

Two concerts at La Meson this weekend.
On Saturday 10th it's d'Aqui Dub, their website says:
"Founded in 2001, D'aqui dub has had a long life, chaotic, voyaging. It drains and reincarnates, explores, experiences… even reinvents catalepsy… And is re-founded once again to propose No Specific Time."
It's a sort of Balkan meets Occitan sound and that man Arnaud Froment has a fine gravelly voice.

On Sunday Un Homme a Traversé le Monde
In contrast to Saturday, this is a performance by Renat Sette of his composition based on the poetry of Serge Bec. He is accompanied by Diego Lubrano on guitar, Patrick Ferné on double bass and Aurélie Lombard on accordion.

Both concerts start at 8pm and cost 10€ (plus 3€ seasonal membership if you haven't joined already)
