Female vocal magic in various styles and Balkan energy mix by a DJ with a trumpet

Yellow Sisters is a Czech female a cappella quartet with a purely self-composed repertoire inspired mostly by jazz, soul, funk, R'n'B, reggae and world music vibes. They like to experiment with their voice and rhythm, always striving to surprise the audience with inventive twists and creative musical arrangements. Since they started performing together in 2005, Yellow Sisters have released three CDs (Singalana in 2006, Tubab Woman in 2010 and Zvìøinec in 2012). Tubab Woman made it to an international hit-parade Spin The Globe's Top 10 World Music Albums in June 2010, alongside such names as Gotan Project and Salif Keita.

Boris Viande

The ‘improbable and indefinable' DJ Boris Viande, performing with a trumpet, based in Paris, has been playing since 2006 all over Europe from weddings and small bars to big clubs and festivals. Currently he is on the road with the ‘Balkan Boombastic Tour' promoting his third EP. Boris plays live trumpet whilst deejaying an eclectic mix of what he calls "Balkan music, gypsy, latino, italo, russkij, celtic, rubadubstep, drumnbrass, rude boy, kamikaze, franchouillard acoustic pogo..." Lots of influences (although Balkan and Gypsy clearly dominate), lots of experimentation and above all lots of contagious joy and energy!

Live soundtrack to short films by G.Méliès and original compositions

The Polish band Ma³e Instru-menty ("small instruments") explores new sounds by using a wide variety of small instruments and musical objects. The instruments used in their sonic experiments run the whole spectrum of miniature professional instruments, from sonic toys made for children to novel musical concoctions and a whole array of small items that aren't really instruments but do make sounds. Their curiosity leads them on stunning musical journeys off the beaten paths and the music created in this way produces a unique palette of sounds that can be at once beautiful and harmonious but also surprising and dissonant, without in any way compromising on its rich resonance.
For the first time in Luxembourg, Ma³e Instrumenty is bringing a varied and eclectic repertoire: the performance will be a mosaic, made up of a ciné-concert with live music to accompany five short films by Georges Méliès, some original arrangements of well-known film music, their own compositions as well as some improvisations. The programme includes the following films:
Le tripot clandestin / The scheming gamblers paradise (1906)
La sirène / The mermaid (1904)
La chrysalide et le papillon / The brahmin and butterfly (1901)
Au clair de la lune / A moonlight serenade (1904)
Le compositeur toqué / The crazy composer (1905)

Their repertoire spans various styles: pop/hard/soft-rock, sweet (but out-there!) ballads, even a vigorous clash of metal and, of course, some good old rock'n'roll to please the dudes. Tanel Padar and The Sun have opened for Metallica, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and many more and, with a respectable on-tour mileage on the dial, the band is considered to be one of the best live acts of all time in Estonia. web video
