Some words about the project

The brass band welcomes everybody, even if you have never played music before or if you are busy ! Everybody can join this music collective created in 2010, for Tribu Festival. Today, about thirty musicians, professionals or amateurs, are part of it, under the saxophonist Maciek Lasserre.

The members of Ze Tribu Brass Band meet one time per month for rehearsals, and occasionaly for some concerts or workshops. The musicians compose sometimes their own tunes and play a repertoire which revolves around ethiojazz, funk and cumbia.

This year, the trompetist and composer Aymeric Avice was on stage with the brass band during the release party. A nice meeting between the founder of the Jarawa project quintet and the musicians.

In 2016, the brass band welcomed during Tribu Festival the percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Jaime Salazar, professor and coordinator of the world musics department at the Conservatoire of Chalon-sur-Saône. He is also a member of the artists collectiv Grolektif and the latin core band Pixvae. During his stay, he shared his love for traditional and popular latin american musics with the brass band. He added to the repertoire two songs called « Fiesta de Negritos » and « Fiesta en Corraleja ».

In 2015, the brass band welcomed the trombonist Fidel Fourneyron, member of the National Orchestra of Jazz.

After the Boutaric esplanade in 2012, Zutique worked again on a shared gardens project ! This action has been done in partnership with the MJC of the Grésilles, on the initiative of the neighborhood Commission of the Grésilles.

This project started in march 2016 with a week of workshop organized as part of a partnership with the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Dijon (ENSA). The students realized different patterns of urban furnitures and showed them to the residents. One of the students, Théo Vollatier, became the leader of the site, and realized those gardens with some youngs from the CHRS Herriot and the Prévention Spécialisée.

During the construction from 12th to 26th september, ten garden boxes (including one for people of reduced mobility), two benches and one table which can support eight people have been installed. The purpose is to create a friendly place just between the Chenier and Dickens buildings, at the center of the Grésilles neighborhood.

The gardens have been inaugurated during october, and can be use by all of the residents since then ! During the next months, Zutique Productions, the MJC of the Grésilles and other structures of the neighborhood will continue to  propose some activities in those gardens. Meetings with the residents will be organized, in order to plan what will be planted during spring and summer 2017.

After two years of works and plantations, the residents of the Grésilles neighborhood, artists and associations came up with a great result : 29 garden boxes, urban furnitures, blackcurrants, raspberry bushes, floral paths…

The association « Au jardin des voisin » (at the garden of the neighbors) is still keeping the place alive. Last year, during spring and summer, a lot of events took place in this garden : meals, cooking workshops, plantations in the garden boxes, caring and watering of the plantations, collective project.

A focus on our past actions



"Le street art, l'art de reconquérir sa ville", was a participative project which took place on a popular neighbourhood of Dijon. Zutique Productions (with the support of the association Juste Ici) wanted to create new markers in the neighbourhood for the residents through this action. During 2016, the artist Eltono created a lot of participative frescos, with some kids of the neighbourhood. He also conceived a graphic floor signage which indicates the main public places of the neighbourhood.
