Alliance Française du Manitoba is excited to partner with Jazz Winnipeg to present Guillaume Perret at the 2018 Winnipeg Jazz Festival! Perret is a virtuoso jazz saxophonist, keyboard player, and composer from Annecy, France. After recording two excellent albums with his group Electric Epic, French saxophonist Guillaume Perret went solo with Free in 2016: with funky grooves and abstract harmonies, impressions of a retro-futurist Africa and post-psychedelic U-turns, it’s a fusion of all forms of jazz, where all influences collide. He will join Manchester-based leftfield piano trio GoGo Penguin at the West End Cultural Centre.

Join the Alliance Française du Manitoba in welcoming the summer with a free performance by talented local bilingual artist Rayannah.

Rayannah creates soundscapes from scratch by running voice, breath, synth and percussion through loop pedals. Underscored by intricate beat-making, her visceral lyrics in French and English rise above it all, offering a glimpse into her experiences both dark and sweet. Having released her debut EP Boxcar Lullabies in 2015, Rayannah is now unveiling music from her forthcoming album, beginning with her first single, En attendant demain.

Friday June 8th 7pm | FREE Ciné/FEEL presents Patients (2017) by Grand Corps Malade & Mehdi Idir

"Patients" is the story of a rebirth, a chaotic journey of victories and defeats, tears and bursts of laughter, but above all encounters: we do not heal alone. "Patients" is one of these movies that will change your life and transport you far far away. It would be a mistake to not give a chance to an experience like that. The story is touching and beautiful, the tone is rough but funny as well. Acting is simply amazing and incredibly natural.
