Award-winning artist, composer and producer Ólafur Arnalds is back on the road with brand new material. After a triumphant return to the stage in 2018, the ‘re:act’ tour represents Ólafur's final set of shows after nearly three years of touring.
Ólafur’s performances continue to captivate audiences across the globe as he invites them to join him on a new journey where he presents his most personal and raw music to date — a counterpoint to the exuberant energy of his latest album ‘re:member’.
His haunting and often intensely emotional shows are an exercise in intimacy, a space for the artist and audience to share their vulnerability through music.
Ólafur and his team of fellow craftsmen and musicians put on a spellbinding performance that brings together past, present and new material. The ‘re:act’ tour features his signature string quartet, a live percussionist and Ólafur’s arsenal of pianos and synthesizers. His groundbreaking, self-playing Stratus pianos will be along for the ride — creating unexpected harmonies and surprising melodic sequences that make every performance unique.
His tour in support of 2018’s studio album ‘re:member’ was met with high critical acclaim, including sold-out arenas and renowned concert halls all over the world. With more than 150 concerts Ólafur captivated hundreds of thousands of fans and created momentous events at iconic venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Elbphilharmonie, Sydney Opera House and premiered the first edition of his very own genre-bending music festival OPIA.
As Ólafur wraps up this part of his artistic life he will pour everything he has into these last few shows, before heading back into his creative cocoon in search of his next adventure.
Rhiannon Giddens is an American artist of folk and traditional music, played on fiddle and banjo; Francesco Turrisi is an Italian pianist and percussionist well versed in jazz, early music and Mediterranean music; at first blush, their worlds don’t overlap.
But at a chance musical meet-up in Ireland they found that her 19th century American minstrel banjo tunes and his traditional Sicilian Tamburello (tambourine) rhythms fit very naturally together. They soon discovered the reason for that - their respective roots coexisted in the past. Pictures of early minstrel bands all represent banjo and tambourine (called tambo) together, where in many cases the tambo is held in the same manner of Southern Italian tamburello traditions today.
The massive effect that West African music and dance has had upon American culture is by now well known; but centuries before, European music was being transformed by Arabic and North African modes, instruments, and rhythms. Working together they trace this musical globalism by reimagining the encounter of the banjo and the frame drum, and other instruments, through their journey from Africa, the Middle East, through southern Europe and England, and over to the Americas….
Giddens and Turrisi’s new album there is no Other was recorded in just five days with little editing and overdubbing in Ireland with producer Joe Henry, and is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.
The 40 Fingers Guitar Quartet was founded in 2017 by four very successful performers from completely different musical backgrounds, inextricably woven into the fabric of their common exploration of music.
The 40 fingers are represented by Matteo Brenci, Emanuele Grafitti, Enrico Maria Milanesi and Andrea Vittori. Four guitarists with a clear mission of exploring new sound galaxies with a wide repertoire of original songs and adaptations interpreted on their guitars with dexterous finger technique. Their musical delights, based on revisiting various contemporary music classics, span from jazz and Latin music to popular movie productions, from Astor Piazzolla to the Beatles, from the Eagles to Tot, and from Dire Straits all the way to Eric Clapton.
Event is in compliance with the decree issued by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia postponed on 25 May 2020.
