A meeting with Olivier Glissant and Victor O, two contemporary musicians from Martinique living in New York and Paris, respectively.

Olivier Glissant is a composer, conductor, producer and founder of Blacksalt Records. He created the Brooklyn Orchestra in 2015, a symphonic ensemble dedicated to new music and contemporary composers, working to fuse kinds of music that rarely meet on the classical stage.

Victor O's music celebrates the universal themes of human relations, expressing in his songs the cultural richness that has come from beautiful exchanges around the globe. They will share his influences, background and future projects.
