This edition: Ivy Falls / Tenores e Cuncordu di orosei / Antoine Pierre Urbex / Uma Chine
Exploring the world’s immensely diverse music collection, where could you possibly start? Well, Kraakpand has pushed the shuffle-button for you. During this intimate evenings, four bands take turns playing their songs. The host will be your guide.
In Ivy Falls' universe, pastel pink pop and subtle electronics, go side by side. Their first EP Mean Girls strolls through the flower meadow that seperates bands as Deptford Goth, Wet & Sylvan Esso.
Ivy Falls is the solo project of singer Fien Deman, after the orchestral pop of I will, I swear and collaborations with Illuminine and Satin Jackets. Fien gathered three musicans to form this band: Trui Amerlinck (Tsar B), Xavier De Clercq (Sleepers’ Reign) and Simon Raman (Steiger).
Cuncordu e Tenore de Orosei
The vocal ensemble Cuncordu e Tenore de Orosei has prime of place in the vast panorama of traditional Sardinian music.
This is due to both their intense musical performance and their characteristic repertoire encompassing the two vocal traditions to be found in Orosei: the sacred songs of religious brotherhood and the secular 'canto a tenore'.
These singers are the faithful guardians of a musical heritage passed on by their elders.
Antoine Pierre Urbex
Uma Chine tells magic-realistic tales with three voices. Six musicians bring songs that will make your hips move and your feet stomp. They take you to another place.
With members of e.g. Maya's Moving Castle, Binti, Steiger, Future Old People Are Wizards, St. Grandson, Kabas and Delvaux.
Sounds like: Goat, sixties psychedelic, Angelo Badalamenti, Amen Dunes, Portishead,…
