The 38e Rugissants Festival has been exploring the diversity of contemporary musical languages since 1989, linking up artistic creation with the main currents of 20th century music, confronting tradition and modernity, marrying acoustic instruments with new musical technologies.

The festival fosters the meeting of cultures, creating openings for improvised, traditional and extra-European musics. The meeting of written and oral composing traditions has developed in the course of creative works hybridizing contemporary western practice and traditional music forms from Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

With the 1997-98 season the festival started organizing Musiques Nomades, a specific programme devoted to world music, focusing on more formal strains but also in a spirit of innovation and enrichment of traditional musics. The Musiques Nomades programme features a monthly rendezvous in and around Grenoble.

THE "FESTIVAL DE L'IMAGINAIRE"

Created in 1997 by the Maison des Cultures du Monde and held each year for two months in March and April, the "Festival de l'Imaginaire" concentrates the efforts of several institutions from Paris, the Paris area and Europe in the field of world cultures. As an open stage for peoples and their most precious or least-known forms of expression, the "Festival de l'Imaginaire" has defined its programming policy in terms of exploration, discovery and revelation, and hopes to keep on arousing the spectator's curiosity.

Whether academic or folk, traditional or contemporary, minimalist or sophisticated, the various events of the "Festival de l'Imaginaire" are performed for the most part for the first time in France. A few of the events involve return performances, after an absence of a few years, either to satisfy the desire for a new generation of spectators or to discover new talents. Thus during the festival, grand masters of the tradition perform side by side with young artists who attempt to enrich and renew what are sometimes very old art forms.

The "Festival de l'Imaginaire" makes room for reflection as well. Colloquia, round tables and conference-demonstrations, on cultural themes or on phenomena from within societies, are also events which make new landmarks possible, enlarging our vision of the world.
