Festival Myrelingues writes from France:

It was difficult this year but we are very proud that in 2017 we met very nice artists and that we could give birth to very nice new music. It would be very nice if you could help us to communicate about this. Of course, we will send you infos about our 2018 projects as soon as we will fix all of them...
Best regards,
Bien cordialement
L'équipe, pour Myrelingues
