It was in 2006 that Mahdi Série took to the stage for the first time, as part of a sociological study on slam. He quickly became passionate about this universe, joining the slammer collective “La Choum Family”, and he also performed in solo slam sessions.
Coriolan, for his part, arrived in Toulouse in 2012 with his harp, after classical music studies. He immediately started performing throughout the city and across the region. He has accompanied dozens of storytellers and singers, forming or joining groups across diverse genres.
In 2014, Mahdi and Coriolan’s paths crossed, and they formed the duo “Les Harpenteurs”. In 2015, they took part in the stage creations of Dick Annegarn and the “Amis du verbe “, where they performed alongside artists such as Karimouche, Lior Shoov, and Nosfell (Printival Boby Lapointe, Théâtre Sorano). That same year, they played at the Maison de la Radio’s famous studio 105, for the France Musique programme “Couleurs du Monde”.
