Duet Yo m'enamori
Sylvie Cohen was born in Constantine in 1955, where the musical life was closely and intensely related to festivals. In the oral tradition, the music expresses in a highly sensitive way, through inflections and words, a unique mosaic of human feelings.
After her arrival in France, Sylvie Cohen started playing the piano as an autodidact. She then studied jazz music and took orchestration and harmony courses. She creates various artistic groups, among which a duet for two pianos and percussions, where composition and improvisation are both of equal importance. She also performs with singers, in terms of creation and dialogue.
She plays with Jean-Marc Zelwer's Kumpania in a musical theater show inspired by tzigan culture.
As a music teacher with children, she put on two musical shows with a trio in a poetico-musical context.
In the duet with François Cotinaud, a particular attraction for Hispano-Jewish melodies has inspired rhythmic, melodic and harmonic researches.
