2008: He creates the festival Au Fil des Voix. An annual meeting of world musics there are two main editions, one in Paris and the other in Vaison-la-Romaine (in the commune of Vaucluse). But there is also a touring edition that visits other cities and towns. The festival's objective is to support contemporary musical creation and its dissemination. Thanks to this  pooling of resources, the annual Au Fil des Voix festival offers new artists even better visibility, while also bringing together record labels and booking agents as well as invited industry professionals (journalists, tour programmers, etc).
