Night of Suprise 2019
On Friday, 11 October, at the sixth Night of Surprise, the Stadtgarten will open its doors to a breathtakingly many-voiced night with musicians and bands from Indonesia, Iran, Mali, Belgium, Denmark, Uganda, Great Britain, the USA, Cologne and other corners of the globe.
Among the highlights are the electro-acoustic project "Parallel Persia " of the Iranian electronic mastermind Sote, which creates hyper-real soundscapes in the futuristic interplay of advanced electronic music with traditional Persian instruments. The new band project "Code Girl " of guitarist and composer Mary Halvorson with a btilliant line up, whose songs move enchantingly bulky and imaginative between jazz, folk, noise, rock, drone and many other influences. The two exceptional young New York musicians, singer Amirtha Kidambi and saxophonist Maria Grand, can be heard for the first time in Cologne with "Code Girl", whose bandleader Mary Halvorson has just won the prestigious Genius Award. In addition, the powerful, unruly, mark-shattering noise of Puce Mary, who has made an international name for herself coming from the punk underground of Copenhagen with her impressive live performances. The trance encounter of Ugandan drum tradition with British techno sensitivity in the project Nihiloxica and the relaxed narrative Tuareg Folk by Ahmed ag Kaedy. Inviting the worls to Stadtgaten.
A musical adventure playground with free admission. Until the early hours of the morning.
