Le Blind-Test de Gégé
Let me tell you: there were screams, laughs, singing and dancing at the Gainsbar for the Blind-Test of Gégé. Géraldine, essential participant for a blind-test in Paris, concocted an evening which would make any music lover go pale! 16 teams competed in 3 sets…an atmosphere The Voice would not be ashamed of!
LUNCH & A LIVE CONCERT AT THE PAILLOTE
A romantic and intimate atmosphere at the Paillote, Noée once again intoxicated us with his music pop and folk. This candidate for the Eurovision 2018 gave us a musical break as we like it !
HAVE YOU SEEN SERGE ?
At the heart of the World Cup, we don’t forget football at Atlantis. Many of you rubbed your eyes, others did not believe their ears when they heard in the corridors « have you seen the Lama »…. For the world cup match France-Peru, Serge the lama was with us. As incredible as it seems, Atlantis did it That day, Serge took more selfies than Paul Pogba!
THE ATLANTIS GARDEN PARTY
The media evening for the Music Festival this year was the Atlantis Garden Party and it was an event one absolutely should not miss !
In a refined and bucolic décor the much awaited Garden Party took place, lamplights at the summer bar with a view to the exterior : the décor was in place for a beautiful Summer’s evening.
At the restaurant l’Île, in the heart of the audio visual ecosystem, the biggest French and International productions were there. The end of the season party, music festival, friendship celebration, it is decidedly THE evening of the year not to be missed!
AMW 2018, the video !
Dominique Magloire and her Gospel !
Dominique Magloire opened the evening with warm Gospel music. An emotional moment. It is watching Gospel choirs that Dominique discovers music. She wins first prize for Lyric singing at the conservatory then a prize for chamber music. Following a number of musical comedies and some LPs one of which is « Gospel for 100 voices », she becomes known to the general public by appearing on the programme The Voice in 2012. She gets through to the semi-final. Since she has continued her career in Theatre. We were delighted to have Dominique and her group, made up in the main with her brother and sister.
UNIVERSAL PRODUCTION MUSIC DURING THE WORLD CUP!
Universal Production Music guaranteed an World Cup atmosphere with its photo call to which everyone flocked at the beginning of the evening.
With more than 45 albums produced each month, Universal Production Music offers the largest repertory of music produced and recorded for media.
Tamara & Emmy Liyana
A duo who provoked an emotional response opened the live concerts for Atlantis Music Week.
One would recognise the voice of Tamara amongst a thousand others . Born in Haïti, raised in Canada, the young self-taught soloist was atAtlantis Music Week 2017. This year she performed as a duo with Emmy Liyana. Born into a musical family in a Paris suburb, Emmy Liyana has been passionate about singing since a child. She performs in stations and Paris bars and at 20 years old, Slimane spots her singing in a bar and registers her without her knowledge for The Voice. This duo is a nugget who opened the concerts of Atlantis Music Week 2018 with sweetness and charm.
Have a Break !
Rhythm and shivers are guaranteed with the break dancers of the team Surprise Effect.
With moves to take your breath away, the guests found themselves plunged into the atmosphere of Street Dancing as good as the best scenes from New York breakdancing! One thing is certain, their performance and good humour did not leave the public indifferent.
KEVIN DAVY WHITE LIGHTS UP THE STAGE!
Finalist on X Factor and former contestant on The Voice, we made his presence available for the enjoyment of everyone. This year 2018 is an exceptional year for this blues and rock performer. This Englishman who loves Paris finds his inspiration in soul, the blues, rock and funk which makes him a rounded artist. It is not the first time Kevin Davy White has worked with Atlantis, because in 2015 he offered a memorable performance during the first part of Keziah Jones for the Média’s Cup 2016. This singer confirms the strength of his voice and talent every time he performs. On the 21st of June, once again he conquered the audience and the dance floor was fired up thanks to his exceptional energy.
DJ set with Walter Sobcek
To the wee hours of the morning the floor of L’Ile Saint-Germain moved to the sound of dancefloor. Walter Sobcek is a Parisian duo formed in 2010 who have built their career on solid remixes.
From « Oh Yeah » by Kitsuné to « My name is trouble » of Keren Ann or even “1901” by Phoenix, the influences from the nineties and the music industry made in Los Angeles make of this duo an essential on the exclusive of Paris and international lounge scene. Their first single « Je me souviens » was released in September 2010 and was played non-stop on music channels such as W9.
Then it was in Miami that the group released their second opus on the label Schmooze, the label of Chilly Gonzales and House of Racket.
For Atlantis Music Week 2018, it was Stephane, the trigger of the duo, who was present for the DJ Set as the floor and walls of the L’Ile remember .
