In the Salle Garnier, the show promises to be surprising. The association of the Philharmonic Orchestra and the 5 rappers intends to give a new dimension to their bevy of cult songs. We will find essential titles like Nés sous la même étoile and Petit frère. Their simple evocation reminds the choruses that marked generations. These titles carried by the acoustics of the orchestra and the energy of the IAM group will light up one of the Principality’s finest venues. Not to be missed.
