The smooth, hypnotic voice of the Syrian singer and composer Bedouine, whose real name is Azniv Korkejian, could be compared with that of Karen Dalton, Minnie Riperton or Laura Marling. The leisurely echoes of Bohemian folk from the 60s, served up as if they were infusions of bossa nova, are capable of fully attracting the listener. Her debut album, which bears her name, was produced by Gus Seyffert (Beck, Norah Jones, The Black Keys). In Barcelona she will present her second album, Bird Songs of a Killjoy on Saturday 21st of September at 9PM at Pça Joan Coromines.
Happy artists families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Until Rest, this reference to a quote from Tolstoy had no relevance when talking about Charlotte Gainsbourg. Her childhood was blissfully free and very early on she demonstrated that she was a extremely talented actress and her solo records were marvellous pop caprices with illustrious Gainsbourgettes invited to collaborate: Beck, Jarvis Cocker, Air and Neil Hannon. Serge and Jane’s daughter did, however, cross the shadow line in 2013. The death of her sister Kate Barry undeniably influenced her music and four years later came Rest, an album of grief, which is on the same level as its counterparts by Nick Cave, Mount Eerie and Sufjan Stevens. If before Charlotte was already able to sublimate tragic beauty simply by pushing her fringe off her face with the back of her hand, the interpretation of this quasi R&B repertoire will certainly trigger the Stendhal syndrome in the audience.

Nascut a Londres i fill de pares ugandesos, Michael Kiwanuka va aparèixer en escena amb ‘Home again’ 2012, disc amb el qual va ser comparat amb grans com Randy Newman o Bill Withers. El seu soul profund ha fet un salt impressionant aquest 2016 amb el seu segon disc, ‘Love & Hate’ (2016), produït per Danger Mouse (Beck, The Black Keys), que va entrar al número 1 de les llistes britàniques i que és ja un clàssic de la música negra. Festival Mil·leni el presenta aquesta nit a la sala Bikini.
The Pictish Trail aka Scottish singer-songwriter Johnny Lynch’s eloquent songs are as wildly varied as his selection of brightly coloured bobble hats and have seen him get mentioned in the same breath as his heroes Beck, The Beta Band and Hot Chip. His extraordinary vocals reveal hidden depths and have been accompanied by everything from acoustic guitar to a full-on four piece metal band to throbbing dance beats and samples, and often during the course of the same gig. Future Echoes, the third album proper from the artist known to his Mum as Johnny Lynch, is undoubtedly his best yet.
