LET THE FANFARE BEGIN!
- What's the best way to represent a culture?
- With music, of course!
- So why not create the Fanfare of my country?
After this vodka-induced conversation, Mat Schulz, the curator of the Krakow Unsound Festival, sent Kadebostan directly to the little-known city of Minsk, capital of Belarus in Eastern Europe, to round up the motley band of musicians that would become his new Fanfare.
6 musicians from different parts of Europe: Romania, Kazakhstan, Russia, Poland...playing violin, cello, piano, accordion, horns, guitar, banjo. The National Fanfare of Kadebostany started here. From a few weeks of rehearsals, recordings and multicultural bonding sessions split between Minsk's "Vodka Delight" and Geneva's "Red Wine Paradise" arose a unique organic-electronic Swiss Middle Eastern band.
Sharing a common love for discovering new ways of expression, Kadebostan and his new-found orchestra composed a new blueprint for non-electronic Techno, hard-hitting and yet warm and welcoming like a massive village festival; cutting-edge but simple like a long-anticipated hug. Violin, cello, piano, accordion, trumpet, bassoon, guitar, banjo...it's a party in the country of Kadebostany, a mesmerising feast of colour and sound driven by the spirit of an ancient tradition.
Needless to say that the warmth, the power and the high energy of the organised chaos that is The National Fanfare of Kadebostan translates best on stage. Make people sweat, laugh and cry with the euphoria of a gigantic traditional Kadebostany village carnival. Make every one dance forever on the one-way train to Kadebostany!
On stage on Saturday, 28 & Sunday, 29 July between 6pm and 9.30pm.
