The organizers of SHERWOOD FESTIVAL, among the largest and most renowned summer music and cultural events in the North East, announced date of the next festival 2011: for a whole month, from 16 June 17 July, North Park Stadium Euganeo of Padua become a stage for the big Italian and international music, emerging local bands, as well as a variety of artistic and cultural initiatives.
Thanks to concert – scheduled for February 11 at the Gran Teatro di Padova Geox – of the great Balkan music Goran Bregovic, for the first year with so far in advance, starts the countdown to Sherwood, the only Italian festival has existed independent of the major summer events on the peninsula.
Previous editions have seen the extent of artists on stage Prodigy, Gogol Bordello and the same Bregovic, presence known on the festival stage in Padua.
Precisely for this reason we chose the concert for the countdown that separates us from Sherwood.
Rooted in the folk tradition, Bregovic's music ranges from the symphony and electronic sounds, combining old and new elements with infinite delicacy and a hint of nostalgia. Friday 11 February, Goran Bregovic will arrive on stage at the Grand Theatre in Padua Geox, accompanied by his Wedding and Funerals Band. The tour Bregovic, “Alkohol”, named after the composer's last recording effort Balkan, “Alkohol: Brandy e Champagne ", released in early 2009 and focused its two core areas, two different ways to enjoy
life: the first, Brandy, takes its title from the Serbian national alcoholic beverage and was recorded live in the town of Guca (Serbia) nell’estate 2007, at the Festival dedicated to local music, meat
Grilled and alcohol. The second, Champagne, is a more refined musical moment, the banner of drinks
much less strong alcoholic.
