instead of writing about worldmusic in luxemburg, i got today inspired by my students to propose you some luxemburgish bands from various stiles.
|Luxembourg is certainly not known as the defining cradle for rock bands of international renown. ETERNAL TANGO, hailing from Dudelange, is, however, one of the rare exceptions, and has grown from being an insider tip to an established act quite quickly. Their recent fame is based on their unrelenting tour schedule, which has definitely helped in refining the band’s highly energetic rock spectacle. In the past two years alone, the five men combo have played close to 300 concerts – among which were breathtaking shows at the ‘WDR Rocknacht’ or the ‘VISIONS Anniversary Festival’ to name some. http://www.eternaltango.lu|
The luxemburgish Hip-Hop Duo is influenced by Jazz, Funk, Trip Hop and talk honestly about everything that matters to them. www.myspace.com/delabsound
Funky P is the quintessential international soul band for the 21st century.
Fusing elements of live club music with inspired song-writing and outstanding production, incorporating the best traditions of soul and R&B, jazz and hip-hop. If we think a musical style has something to gve, it’s gotta leave some footprints in our music. www.funkyp.lu
