Kwoon are a post-rock French band led by Sandy Lavallart. The band came to prominence with the release of an epic video for "I Lived on the Moon", a song from their debut album Tales And Dreams. Yannick Puig's brilliantly realised animated film picked up five prizes during European film festivals.

7ème Ciel was delighted to hand over our stage to Kwoon, a band who invites us to follow our dreams and share our emotions. The concert was a prelude to a European tour which ended with a memorable performance at Café de la Danse in Paris.

On this September evening, Lavallart and his bandmates (Ellen Casey on cello, Cyrille Holodiuk on drums, Olivier Moreau and Julien Flament on guitar) performed entirely acoustically. An unusual set up for a band best known for their thunderous live sound.

They played songs from their first record and tracks from their upcoming album, When The Flowers Were Singing.
