Headed to one of my favorite cities in the world with a great bunch of Quebecois-

Melbourne Fest

In between performing, Beno√ģt and friends will present two gigs at The Toff in Town, freely traversing late 60s to early 70s psychedelic-afro-funk-jazz and standards from the era.

Composer and Conductor BENOÎT CHAREST

In 2003 the animated French feature¬†The¬†Triplets of Belleville¬†swept the globe, raking up dozens of awards and nominations‚ÄĒnot to mention the hearts of countless admirers‚ÄĒalong the way. Much of it came down to the Oscar-nominated score by¬†Beno√ģt Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.

Beno√ģt is back, and in Australia for the first time. With his¬†Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville¬†he recreates live the original score as the film itself is beamed onto the big screen. Saddle up for the misadventures of a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist, his would-be rescuer grandmother and the titular trio of larger-than life divas, all accompanied by the speakeasy-slick sounds of¬†un orchestre sans pareil.
