In my childhood, my parent’s support for my musical learning often resulted in my spontaneous compositions and various improvisations being featured in their films. With my mother, I played harmonica and sang for “Faille” and made my debut on the monochord/Dan Bao on the “Ho” soundtrack. With my father, I played my first harp improvisation on a workshop’s film.
I know that their support is always present and today, I continue to collaborate with them as well as with the artists who gravitate around the Polygone Étoilé.

Music has always been a link between cultures and eras. Morgane Neplaz, accompanied by her Celtic harp – as well as other instruments gleaned from her musical experiences – carries us with her voice across borders and generations. The music transports us from traditional French, Sephardic and Balkan songs, to contemporary songs between cumbia and waltz, to her own compositions.

Several collaborations have taken place in Marseille on musical reading projects led by Henriette Nhung Pertus, Josiane Maudet and Françoise Moissesson until March 2019.
I met Henriette Nhung Pertus during my work on the play “Souffle d’Outre-Ciel” written by Lionel Parrini. We meet from time to time around adaptations of traditional tales.

This collective has come together with the desire to bring to life contemporary texts that are not well represented, by favouring the link between the different arts and the relationship with the public.
