Thievery Corporation - one of the most exciting bands from the global concert industry, comes in Skopje to open the summer music festival - Skopje Calling 2017.
Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka: Thievery Corporation, have kept the flame of trip-hop alive since the late 1990s. Their music style mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, Indian classical and Brazilian (such as bossa nova) with a lounge aesthetic.
On this concert tour the band is promoting their recently released album - "The Temple of I & I". Recorded in Jamaica no less, the LP has that modern reggae sound, with a mixture of live instrumentation, local guest vocalists and digital trickery, all mixed together like a chilled rum and cola, sipped on a sunny evening.
Tickets are already on sale and can be bought through the sales networks of kupikartizase.com and JUGOTON (GTC). Ticket price is 990 MKD.
Concert starts at 21:00
The Skopje Cinema City musical documentary films opened last night in the capital. The first night of the festival opened with the photo exhibition by the British photographer, Brian Rasic, who brought a different and perfectionist photo album of the music legend, David Bowie, with his concerts from 1983 until 2006.
The author of the exhibition said that he was impressed by the interest shown for his exhibition and that it had a humanitarian character, because the money from the sale of every photograph would go to orphans.
In the framework of the festival, until 5 July, 13 musical documentary films will be shown, both national and foreign. The motto of the festival is “Films, music and wine”. The festival is held in partnership with the Macedonian Cinematheque.
Besides films, on 2, 3 and 4 July, workshops, lectures and other activities will take place at “Menada” coffee-bar.
