“Tétrodon” Project

The "tétrodon" project was developed by Jacques Berce and Henri Ciriani of the AAU (Bordeaux).

They offer a modular housing based on a 30-foot container whose volume is increased using polyester shells. After several prototypes from 1970 onwards, tetrodons switched to mass production, but in 1973, the first oil shock and its impact on petrochemical-based products put an end to tetrodons, whose total production had reached a small number of thousands, most of which had disappeared. There are a few examples in Darwin (Bordeaux) and one in the Bouches-du-Rhône, which was awarded the "Heritage of the 20th Century" label in 2012.

The copy saved by the Biotope Festival association in order to preserve one of these copies constituting a Gironde heritage is installed in the palus of Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens on private land in order to propose a Biodiversity Observatory.

Located in a wetland area characterized by a great wealth of fauna and flora, it will become a base site for walks to discover the fauna and flora. Fauna and flora are recorded within its walls via educational panels. Its equipment allows night observations to be made. Inside access is only by appointment at the Biotope Festival.

Concerts

Saturday June 29th “KID CREOLE AND THE COCONUTS”

A stage was be set up in the heart of the moat of the Cardinal Palace and was host two free concerts on SATURDAY 29 JUNE, offered by the Saint-Émilion Jazz Festival.

21H30 - KID CRÉOLE AND THE COCONUTS

At the beginning, there was a vision, the vision of a multicultural carnival without stylistic boundaries; the vision of a colourful theatre with fascinating characters; the vision of a joyful and exuberant lifestyle, full of irony, humour and sophistication. The visionary was August Darnell, born in the Bronx. Kid Creole and the Coconuts was born from Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band. In the 1970s, the Savannah Band had successfully merged the sound of the big band of the 1940s (Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Louis Prima) with the dancefloor of the disco era. August Darnelle then created Kid Creole and The Coconuts in 1981 and incorporated a touch of sunshine into his music - calypso, soca, salsa, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, funk, hiphop, etc... with a strong Caribbean accent. 38 years later, the man and his group are still synonymous with adventure and escape... An adventure to live in Saint-Emilion and which promises a rhythmic, sunny, exceptional show!

Line-up: August Darnell (Kid Creole)

The Coconuts: Sarah McGrath, Roos Van Rossum, Charlotte De Graaf,

Musicians : Dave Imby (Drums) - Oroh Angiama (Bass) - Michael Gorman (Keyboards) - Mark Anthony Jones (Guitar) - Chris Storr (Trumpet) - Barnaby- Dickinson (Trombone) - Edgar Jones (Saxophone)
