Amigos, we’ve decided not to torment you by long wait and present you a new trio of bands! They embody all the great variety and ingenuity of KUBANA with no borders – whether neither musical nor geographical. Judge for yourself – Greek folklore, romantic trip-hop and Russian punk-rock all in one news!
In 2012 all kubanoids were kept on toes by gypsy camp Gogol Bordello that tossed a party with singing and dancing on the sea. This year we presented this opportunity to young Greeks from Koza Mostra, which perform in rebetiko style. Infused with national folklore with mixture of Balkan tunes and ska, Koza Mostra songs get everyone going at once. In 2013 their most popular song «Alcohol Is Free» created a stir at Eurovision contest where they got the 6th place. Harmonica, tromba, guitars and drums – that’s a small orchestra of hot Greek guys that will raise heat on the Baltic Sea. Right now Kosa Mostra is working in the studio with a famous composer, the father of Greek Sirtaki, Mikis Theodorakis. So, amigos go learn the moves that you’ll need at KUBANA-2015.
Hear and tremble, night lovers of KUBANA-2015, as for the fourth time the festival will host the main Russian Romantic. Some know him from rap-band Malchishnik, some got to know him in 2000еs when every radiowave aired «Vesna» and «L’ubov» and new generation knows him as a poet. And it’s all about Andrew Lysikov, whom we all know as Dolphin. For KUBANA-2015 he’s prepared an exclusive set to show something new not only in music but also in emotions. The previous year became extremely active for Andrew as he released a new album «Andrey» that became an absolute hit of iTunes, and he also released his book of poetry. Sleepless nights of KUBANA are closer, amigos.
And this news is for those who fancy the leaders of Russian punk-rock! We mean NAÏVE band that’s been around for more than a quarter of the century. Their reckless history and songs reflected the chaos of 90es, and in 2000 they rightly became iconic rock-band. After a long hiatus from 2009 to 2013 they performed at KUBANA-2013, which they chose as the best stage for their comeback. And this year they will rock kubanoids with their loud show again. Besides their proven classic hits NAÏVE will also perform their newest songs «Troyka», «Drugie» and «Na predele» that continue to top charts of the Russian radio-stations.
Amigos, you are about to start the most interesting journeys of this summer! August 6-9, KUBANA invites everyone to the Baltic Sea of Kaliningrad Region, to Yantarny settlement!
