The Lamparo Company
Founded in 2003 by Manu Théron and Nora Mauriaucourt, La Compagnie du Lamparo, National Company based in Marseilles, is an association that brings together musicians and initiates artistic projects devoted to research and creation related to the heritages and cultures of " Oc in the Marseilles region.
Collection of sound documents, creations or transmission of popular knowledge, the exploration territories of Lamparo trace the possible paths that culture and language of Oc maintain, sometimes unexpectedly, with their sisters of the Mediterranean basin, those that irrigate Marseille since its foundation.
By rubbing diverse musical aesthetics with a singular poetic approach, Lamparo embarks on the path of a reappropriation of popular Mediterranean musical traditions with an ambition to rediscover and question the intangible heritage of its region.
Far from seeking the perpetuation of a tradition, these activities aim - more modestly but no less ambitiously - on bringing the public into contact with the most volatile and the most exalting aspects of history - not written but inscribed - By the singing of a language, in every corner of its territory and in all the perspectives of its horizon.
