Friday, June 20th, one day ahead of the Fête de la Musique in France, the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) presented a Conference-Concert at their building , located at 27 rue Paul Bert, Ivry, near to the Porte d'Ivry and just outside of Paris.
On the bill: Marie Buscatto, Research scientist and Sociology Professor at the Paris University 1 Pantheon - Sorbonne. Buscatto presented her work on women in jazz.
The concert, a rencontre of the duo: bassist, Alice Bassie, guitarist, Marie-Ange Martin and French singer, Fabienne and African-American singer, Manda Djinn, was appreciated by all.
Many thanks to the CNRS for this peek into the world of women in jazz, varied in styles and outlooks.
