CNCM Voce proposes the Work Songs residency, or the art of giving a second life to these songs of the trade, songs of work that distance and ignorance have condemned to oblivion. The search for the musical essence of these vocal practices.

Work Songs wants to find, rearrange and update these songs of work, songs of work that distance and ignorance have condemned to oblivion. To understand their very essence in order to give them a second life.

This functional music, the coordination of gestures, no longer makes sense when you work alone and the tempo is set by a smartphone. So putting singing back into the workplace is perhaps also a way of cleaning up practices, of simply finding reasons to sing.

Their approach is neither memorial nor documentary, but a search for the musical essence of these simple and powerful oral vocal practices.
