Following his 2017 Bastille Day performance that left the Crazy Coqs audience speechless with awe, there was no question that Arnaud NANO Méthivier had to feature in our 2018 French Fest. Once they had recovered their senses, comments ranged from "the best show I've seen" to "totally unexpected and equally unforgettable".

This is the accordion like you have never heard it before: a seamless music odyssey that evokes Ennio Morricone and Deep Purple, Astor Piazzola, Brian Eno and Jean-Michel Jarre. With an indefinable mixture of rhythms and genres, colours and atmospheres, guttural songs and sighs, words and onomatopoeias - forget the clichés - NANO has reinvented the instrument.

"I don't know where to position myself; sometimes feel like I'm presenting theatre or cinema rather than music. I offer people a continuous, totally improvised journey. I want to take them elsewhere. To a seemingly inaccessible place. Where one rarely goes: deep inside oneself" - Arnaud NANO Méthivier
