Yom, a specialist in Ashkenazi Jewish music, associated himself with Baptiste-Florian Marle-Ouvrard, holder of the great organ of the Église Saint-Eustache and an international concertist, in addition to being an Office musician.
The repertoire is conceived as a collection of musical prayers and sound offerings. As an offering, as a prayer that would ask nothing and would not address anyone, as a small ritual simply intended to celebrate life modestly.

Aynur Doğan – Kayhan Kalhor-Salman Gambabarov-Cemil Qoçgirî
In five long beaches, here is the rare and precious dialogue established between Kayhan Kalhor, an extraordinary Iranian old man who, with a stroke of his kamancheh, can paint the smallest movements of the soul, and the Kurdish singer Aynur Doğan, so poignant in her raw, dignified and painful inflections as a flamenco cantaora.
