World | Nø Førmat! celebrates its 15th anniversary with a itinerant festival

Independent French label Nø Førmat! celebrates its 15th anniversary. To illustrate 15 years of musical diversity, the label has dreamed up an itinerant festival: 5 nights on 3 continents – showcasing some of the major names from its catalogue. 

Since its inception in 2004 by Laurent Bizot, Nø Førmat! has evolved according to the principle of welcoming, without stylistic constraint, a variety of musical forms that reflect the wealth of the increasingly creolised and interrelated world.

In its eclectic catalogue can be found Gonzales, Ballaké Sissoko, Mélissa Laveaux, ALA.NI, Blick Bassy, Oumou Sangaré or ¿ Que Vola ?. It is this miscellany of genres, as well as its characteristic design,  made up by Jérome Witz, that forged the identity of the label.

In 2019, Nø Førmat! celebrates 15 years of collaboration with an itinerant festival. The festival will pass by Cully Jazz Festival in Switzerland, London, JazzKif Festival in Kinshasa, Nuits de Fourvière in Lyon and New York.
