What produces the meeting of two free electrons ? 
For seven years, the pianist Thomas Enhco and the percussionist Vassilena Serafimova have formed a nonstandard duo. Thomas Enhco was bathed in classical music before choosing jazz and improvisation. In 2013, he was voted "Revelation of the Year" at the "Victoires du jazz". Vassilena Serafimova, of Bulgarian origin, approaches music by the Russian school and integrates marimba with her classical culture. From one style to another, the two musicians move on an aerial and energetic line of music. An audacious duet, between heaven and earth: two tightrope walkers.

Notre-Dame's Church of Ecouché les Vallées...

Three churches were successively built on the same site. From the primitive church, only one wall remains from a square tower. In the 12th century, it was replaced by a second church, which the ruined arcades, form a forecourt, testify a function that peristed until 1925, when the roof collapsed. The fine arts made it a "ruin restrained" to save it from demolition. The decision to build the third church dates back to the 15th century and is in a context of economic prosperity. In the 16th century, the works slowed down and were abandoned, the church remained unfinished. Today, the faithful gather in the transept and the beginning of the unfinished nave.
