Opening party at Rock Club 60
Don’t miss out another fantastic highlight of the programme, the Opening Party at Rock Club 60 in Pradamano (via G. Marconi 24), starting at 09:30pm: a free event featuring Adwaith’s post-punk, pop and folk music and one of the most popular hip-hop artists of the Basque Country, La Basu. But they won’t be the only ones taking the stage… as already anticipated, this year Suns Europe will be electro-pop, rock & roll, but also rap, indie rock, electronic drums. It’s a fact, this Opening Party will blow you away!
In 2016, the contemporary Welsh music scene saw the rise of Adwaith, three girls from Carmarthen who play and sing with a strong personality and vibe. Adwaith’s music is a blend of post-punk, pop and folk inspiration, with soul-filled melodies enriched by the intricate work of guitars and an overlay of clear, powerful voices.
Elena Caballero Villanueva (aka La Basu) is one of the most popular artist of the hip-hop scene in the Basque Country. A strong and self-confident Basque woman, who intertwines her rhymes in Basque and Spanish with sounds, rhythms, and language expressions from rap, soul, reggae, funk, rhythm’n’blues, rock, folk, and even flamenco music.
Suns Europe is a project of Cooperativa Informazione Friulana (publisher of Radio Onde Furlane) and Cooperativa Puntozero, with the sponsorship of Arlef (Agjenzie Regjonâl pe Lenghe Furlane – Regional Agency for Friulian language), Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia and Fondazione Friuli, in collaboration with the Municipality of Udine, Fondazione Teatro Nuovo Giovanni da Udine, Babel Film Festival and under the auspices of the Council of Europe.
