Oiseaux-Tempête & Friends gave an overwhelming and immersive performance at Le Guess Who? 2019, joined on stage by G.W. Sok (King Champion Sounds, formerly The Ex), Jessica Moss (Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band), Mondkopf and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem In My Heart, also LGW17 curator).
Oiseaux-Tempête’s cross-cultural, multi-genre improv rock has a tendency to unfold in places of turmoil, recording records in Greece, Turkey and Lebanon in the past. The core duo of Frédéric D. Oberland and Stéphane Pigneul strongly embraces the communal and collaborative aspects of music. All musicians part of the special performance at Le Guess Who? were also involved in Oiseaux-Tempête’s newest album ‘From Somewhere Invisible’, released in October 2019.
