About this EventEmel Mathlouthi and her trio will perform songs in French, English, and Arabic in an intimate, lyrical style, underscored by fierce rock beats and throbbing trip-hop and oriental influences. This concert is taking place on the occasion of the le Mois de la francophonie, which celebrates the richness of the wide-ranging cultures of the Francophone world.
About Emel Mathlouthi
Mathlouthi began her artistic career at the age of 8 in Ibn Sina, a suburb of Tunis. At age 25, oppressed by the Tunisian government because of her music, she moved to France to pursue her career as a singer, and then in 2014 she took another step in her career and moved to New York City. She has been said to evoke the urgency of American folk singer, Joan Baez, with the devotion of a chanter of ancient sacred music and the presence of a soul diva. She has given concerts in Saudi Arabia and all over the Middle East, as well as Europe and North America.
