Hania Rani at KunstFestSpiele 2021

Feinkost Lampe

This year’s concerts hosted by the small underground club Feinkost Lampe combine powerful voices from Ukraine, Iran, Brazil and Syria with the atmosphere of the Galerie and Großer Garten.

From Lviv comes YAGODY, an ensemble around the actor Zoryana Dybovska. Their thrilling choral sounds combine Ukrainian folksongs with influence from the Balkans and elsewhere.

The Denmark-based Iranian Nadia Tehran performs on a wave of punk energy. Their songs explore migration, identity, disconnection, flight – now booming and trippy, now thoughtfully poetic, often rapping with biting irony.

On KunstFestSpiele Tag the musician Yousef Kekhia, who was born and raised in Syria, introduces his second album, Polylog. His warm electronic songs look at themes like feminism and gender identity, and his captivating voice seeks a new expression of masculinity.

Bia Ferreira defines her songs that mix gospel, rap and reggae as 'música de mulher preta’ (‘Black woman’s music’). The Brazilian singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer raises her voice as an anti-racist activist and fierce defender of the LGBTQIA+ community. Her song ‘Cota Nao é Esmola’, a hymn of anti-racist resistance to the quota system for Black access to universities, reached an audience of millions.

The artists in this varied Feinkost Lampe programme connect personal and musical background with political attitude to extend the spectrum of contemporary sounds.
