Testimonials - What they said about us

Both Small World and Marchande d’idées create and present art that speaks to an increasingly cross-cultural world; we created the groundwork for exchanges that we can learn from by embracing the differences and similarities of each other.

Alan Davis

Executive Director, Small World Music Society, Toronto, Canada

Nous croyons que ce type de projet contribuera à l’élargissement des frontières et permettra également aux citoyens de tous les horizons de vivre une expérience valorisante et enrichissante sur le volet culturel.

Malika Bajjaje

Directrice générale, Festival des traditions du monde de Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada

Marchande d’idées was able to bridge the gap between two worlds through art and music. This helps strengthen human connections and creates a platform that fosters peace, trust and other human values between the two countries Morocco and Canada. We are in need of a multitude of this kind of initiatives to strengthen the global culture exchange and dialogue.

Je félicite Marchande d'idées interculturelles pour le projet effectué exceptionnellement à M’Hamid El Ghizlane au Maroc et qui avait pour but de rapprocher les deux musiques marocco-canadienne dans le cadre d'un échange de culture et de vivre ensemble. En tant que président de l'Association marocaine de Toronto et conseiller sur ce projet, j'appuis et je soutiens fortement les projets futurs de Mme Nathalie Lévesque.

Exchanging two different rhythms: A traditional drum group - RedTail Spirit Singers from Canada and Generation Taragalte from the Moroccan Sahara, was a hard task. Yet, the result makes it clear to me that indeed music is a language spirits can communicate with.
