Yann-Gaël Poncet


If the work of Yann-Gaël always took several forms, it is nevertheless built around some transverse concerns.

His work participates in the weaving of a quality link between human beings. He pushes the knowledge of the other one to its finest nuances, sculpturing his subject against a binary, consumerist world, strangely fond of caricatures.

Yann-Gaël tries to produce, by his music, an emotion which opens the way to a possible reconsideration of the ideas, an overtaking of the prejudices and a call to release itself from the dictatorship of a supposed reality.

Its artistic requirement and its curiosity brought him to develop several skills and universe in which exist a singular conception of the harmony, the improvisation and a need for sense.

Convinced that intelligence is a collective good, he is inhabited by the idea that music stimulates it. In his own way, he shares, tells, adds and deciphers.

To the frenzy of the world, he brings the slowness of “S”;

To its ugliness, the poetry of “Poncet”;

To its prejudices, the dialogue of the ” Transcontinental Projects “.

His work brought him, among others distinction, the ” Grand Prix des rencontres Brel “, the ” Grand Prix de l’Académie du Jazz “, the support of the « Villa Medicis » and the « Fondation Beaumarchais ».

Transcontinental Charango Et si on vous disait qu'une tournée se prépare en France !



Yann-Gaël Poncet is a virtuoso, he is a traveler too. And when he travels to the most distant regions, violin in hand, no door remains closed. It is the magic of these meetings that he brings us through his Transcontinental projects.

A way to highlight, in a festive manner, musics of strong identity, that don’t benefit from any political attention. A way to change our look upon these “minorities”, to meet these other that we often forget. A way also to oppose a cultural imperialism always more liberal, to highlight an ideal of humanism and the French musical innovation.

“Transcontinental Charango” is the second element of the international adventure of the “Transcontinental Projects” (“Transcontinental Calypso” was created in 2012 in San José/Costa-Rica).

It is the ultimate meeting of the french electro music with the andean virtuoso instrument, the charango, fed by the bilingual poetry of an Argentine French Hipopeur, and English of a New York writer.

On stage, it is a show of music and video led full steam by Sergent Garcia.

Sergent Garcia (spain) + Oscar MIRANDA (Charango, Argentine) + ELECTROFACTO (France) – Jean-Paul Hervé/Philippe Gilbert/Olivier Génin/Yann-Gaël Poncet


Slow, soft, sweet, strange and savage…
Sound and silence too. « S » is an electro-jazz band…
One of a kind!
A quartet that permanently searches for the shortest way to our guts.

Yann-Gaël Poncet


Often compared to Sting, Brel and Nougaro, Yann-Gaël Poncet leads its double career (jazz and French song) on several continents.

Discreet and thoughtful man, he returns to us with one of the most brilliant musician of the moment, Vincent Lafont, in a surprising, roguish and profound duet. What they realize here, the two of them only, is all together virtuoso, fine, acrobatic and spectacular.

As a fabulous storyteller, Yann-Gaël Poncet takes us, far from this feverish world, in the discovery of invented horizons where the other one becomes essential.
