KAWA BROTHERS
The Kawa Brothers are heirs to a musical tradition that has been passed down in the family for seven generations, and which originates in Rajasthan(Gokulpura). Mosin Kawa (tablas), Shahid Kawa (vocals and harmonium) and Yunus Kawa (sarangi) were born in Jaipur, and were trained by their father, Ustad Shabbir Ahmed, and their grandfather, the famous Ustad Bashir Khan. They count in their family of musicians like Ustad Sultan Khan, sarangi player known worldwide with which Yunus also studied. The Kawa Brothers gave many concerts, both in India and in Europe in recent years, Mosin Kawa, artistic director of the group, also has to his credit numerous collaborations with renowned artists from the jazz and world international music scene, as Khaled, Omar Sosa, David Murray, Vincent Segal.

MACHINE ROUGE
A theatrical show ? Atypical, certainly. What Denis Lavant and François R. Cambuzat looked for is neither the good word, nor the nicest rhyme nor the satisfaction of the beautiful souls, but this magnificent savagery, this loss of one in surge, this gypsy and universal duende so close to the Sufism and so dear to Federico Garcia Lorca, without which everything – the beauty, the technique, the apparire – is totally and perfectly useless.
The music is not improvised, but written and of steel, in structures faithful and merciless as decades without bread. It is the basis, the weft on the which the revolt rests. François R. Cambuzat welded the arrangements, Gianna Greco milled the sub-basses. The compositions are evolving to disturb the Voice, to destabilize what was already said, to create other desires – especially for other impulses. Everything will die and reborn. So a Uyghur song can replace a valve, a Turkish Ney would blast a steam machine. Guitars and computers.

ATTWENGER
Attwenger (formed 1990) is a musical duo from Linz, Austria. The group is made up of drummer Markus Binder and button accordion player Hans-Peter Falkner; both members also sing.
Attwenger’s music is an unusual combination of Upper Austrian folk music and hip-hop, with lyrics sung (and rapped) in Upper Austrian dialect. Falkner often plays his accordion through effects pedals to give his instrument a distorted timbre similar to that of an electric guitar. Binder sometimes uses drum machines.

STELIOS PETRAKIS
Stelios Petrakis was born in 1975 and grew up in Sitia, Crete. In 1983 he joined the Sitia School of Music, learning to play the lyra under teachers Giannis Dandolos (1983), Ross Daly (1984) and Eleni Drettaki (1985-1993), under the directorship of Kostas Moundakis. He completed his “official” lyra studies in 1993.

KEIJI HAINO / MERZBOW / BALAZS PANDI
The renowned Japanese electronic maestro Merzbow [3] (aka Masami
Akita) joins forces with his fellow countryman Keiji Haino [4] and
Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi [5] on another example of extreme sonic experimentation. Merzbow and Pandi, who have been playing together since 2009, push the envelope once again with improv singer and noise guitarist Haino. The resulting album An Untroublesome Defencelessness is a relentlessly intense cauldron of
caustic power chording, adrenalized blast beats and double bass drum
thunder, and grinding white noise fusillades, courtesy of this fearsome threesome.

Thank you for reading

All the best.
