Our favourite artists joining this world-class music event in Locorotondo.
Two acclaimed American artists, Jose James and Lauryn Hill will be headlining the 2019 edition, accompanied by the unique presence of Four Tet, one of the most avant-garde artists in the electronic music scene.
Lauryn Hill: former member of Fugees, Lauryn Hill is the voice behind songs like “Killing me softly” and “Ready or not?” just to name a few. A queen of soul music with a long list of awards and a very controversial history between music and social activism.
Jose James: Sensual and energetic as it could be, Jose James love blending modern jazz and hip-hop. An smooth yet deep voice that reminds us of a younger version of lighthouse family but also a melancholic sound from the past, which at times reminds us of Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday.
Four Tet: a blissful mix of electronic and experimental music, but also jazz, folk and arab influences, Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) is an English musician that broke through the European scene in 2003, when he opened for Radiohead on their European tour. His style is so eclectic that encapsulates a new genre itself, that in fact he dubs himself as “folktronica”. An incredible experience for the ears.
