Magma, the cult band of the French music scene.
Since 1969, Magma has established itself with a unique music, at the crossroads of rock, jazz and avant-garde. Founded by drummer Christian Vander, Magma quickly distinguished itself from its contemporaries with a powerful polyrhythm and an invented language, Kobaïan. Magma's influence extends over several decades and across the world, surprising both the Chinese public and the Hellfest audience, where it was a triumph in 2016.
Bands and fashions come and go, few stay and last. And for this special evening, Magma joins forces with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra for an unprecedented encounter.
