17 October 2019 DAKH DAUGHTERS
This group has no analogues in the Ukrainian music scene. Their work is a combination of extravagant images, classical instruments and experimental sound. Ukrainian folk, French rap and reggae jams, these are the components that the group organically combines in their music. Their songs are different non-linear parts. At first it may seem that this is just a cacophony of sounds, but after a moment you are picked up by the rhythm and you understand the author’s subtle creative idea. Dakh Daughters is intellectual music for modern people. Music makes you think and make a choice. This is the manifesto of a reasonable man.
Expect an incredible combination of music and theater and female charisma.
20 October 2019 SCARLXRD
Already this fall, Ukraine will shudder from the hip-hop mix, trap and metal. Sounds impossible? Marius Listrop proves to the music industry that anything is possible. And it does this successfully over the past few years under the pseudonym Scarlxrd.
Only in 2019 he had two full-length records. The first - Infinity - was released in March. The second - Immxrtalisatixn - is preparing to see the light in September. Listrop works at maximum speeds and shows that even a momentary idea can become a full-fledged art. Otherwise, where does he have so much material?
But the juice is "live" Scarlxrd. Some people call it musical terrorism, others - an excellent emotional discharge after a long working day. Marius along with his DJ provoke the crowd, climb on the balconies and jump from them, tear their throats and push people with their foreheads.
It is definitely worth trying out for yourself.
23 October 2019 CELTIC LEGENDS
In 2001, in Ireland, on the pristine, beautiful hills of Connemara, the dance group Celtic Legends began their tour around the world. The performance, consisting of traditional Irish dances and music, was seen in almost all corners of our planet. All music is performed live!
The sound of traditional Irish musical instruments - the violin with its crazy trill, the Celtic drum, which sets the rhythm for the whole orchestra, and the sad tunes of the Irish bagpipe, as well as the incendiary dances that return us to the roots of ancient traditions, so heat the atmosphere that the audience seems to be in the oldest Ireland, with its life, culture, music and its own incomparable heartbeat.
Dancers conquer the stage with beautiful lightning movements. Complex group numbers are enriched with solo parts, which become the decoration of the performance - traditionally Irish, lively, colorful and truly unforgettable!
Join two hours of extravaganza of dance and music, filled with a wealth of Irish talent!
