10th and 11th of February 2007
Instants Chavirés -
7, rue Richard Lenoir 93100 Montreuil France
Concerts start at 7PM - Entrance fee: 7 euros/night

A l'initiative de plusieurs musiciens ayant fait le voyage au Liban, une édition de soutien aux activités de MILL réunira 20 artistes pour 2 jours d'improvisations aux Instants Chavirés à Paris. Aprés 7 années de travaux réguliers dans un pays ou elle est la seule association à defendre les pratiques innovatrices en musique, elle se trouve plus que jamais menacée par l'instabilité chronique qui seccoue le pays aprés l'agression de juillet 2006 et le fantôme de la guerre civile qui sevit aujourd'hui.
