LE VIBE & GRUPO PILON
Spectacle : 20:30
Join us for two showcases by local reggae fusion sensation Le Vibe and Luxembourg’s Funana pioneers Grupo Pilon. Expect a dynamic blend of world-influenced energetic live music!
Lively, authentic, full of joy and a little bit chaotic: Meet Le Vibe ! While sharing a common love for Reggae music, each member of the band enriches Le Vibe’s musical soundscape with their own influences. Over the years, this has led the band to experiment with different genres, creating a quite unique blend: Le Vibe plays a colorful and driving blend of Roots Reggae infused with genres like Afrobeat, Funk and Jazz. This results in honest and uplifting music that strives to move and inspire their audience by working towards the goal of making people think and dance.
Grupo Pilon are a Cape Verdean band founded in the 80s, in the Gare district of Luxembourg City, by adolescents, children of the first Cape Verdeans who came to settle in Luxembourg in the 70s. Their musical style is « Funana », originating from the island of Santiago, and is the once prohibited music from the time of the Portuguese colonizers, because it was considered subversive. Composed of self-taught musicians, the band set out to create something of their own and are known to have a very unique style! Grupo Pilon are signed to New York-based label Ostinato Records.
