Presented by the animators from Mouv ‘Emmy and Ngiraan, the show once again kept all its promises. More than 10 artists have performed on stage, accompanied by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France led by Dylan Corlay, all under the artistic direction of Issam Krimi and his group the Ice Kream. As in every edition, the Line-Up honored both rising stars of French rap and pioneers of the genre.
Issam Krimi opened the festivities with a performance of “Not a Cloud”, one of his original creations. He then played two more: “Peach” and “Lucky World”, a composition in tribute to the late DJ Mehdi.
Doria then performed her songs “Goodbye” and “Donne moi la main”, thanks to which she once again demonstrated her immense potential on vocals, in addition to the ease with kickage that she already knew.
Selah Sue she first performed alongside Benjamin Epps on their “Hurray” collaboration, where the chemistry between them was perfectly felt. She then continued on her own with the single “There Comes a Day”.
Benjamin Epps in turn followed with a solo piece, a very solemn interpretation of “God Bless the Children”, her singular voice marrying remarkably well with the different instruments.
Spectators also had the chance to witness a fairly familiar scene, when Laeti, headliner of the last season of the series Validé, came to sing the title “Rider All La Night”, exactly as she does in the last episode of this season 2.
Impossible not to mention the passage of the mythical group Bisso In Bisso, which ignited the most nostalgic present in the room with their famous eponymous title.
If he was undoubtedly one of the headliners of this program, Dinos did not disappoint and delivered two performances demonstrating that he is an artist made for live performances. The artist from La Courneuve had chosen to play XNXX and El Pichichi, two pieces which gave the impression of having been designed to be performed by an orchestra as the rendering was excellent.
Finally, who else but the legend MC Solar to end this beautiful evening. It is with charisma and attitude that he rapped the classic “Caroline”, after “New Western” a few minutes before.
Edition after edition, Symphonic Hip-hop therefore continues to establish itself as an essential event on the French Rap agenda, and for the 6th consecutive year, success was still there.
