DEC 2019: AUTUMN/FALL TOUR + WOMEX RECAP - BARMER BOYS in ITALY, CZECH REP., SCHOOL CONCERTS in DENMARK; LAKHA KHAN at WOMEX FINLAND, CZECH REP., DENMARK, SWEDEN, LE GUESS WHO?
Two back-to-back European tours and 42 concerts later, we now share tour moments, pictures, video and press reviews from the Barmer Boys and Lakha Khan concerts and WOMEX Showcase.
The Boys were back in the magical city of Prague (after Respect Festival in 2018), for a concert at Palac Akropolis - a restored theatre in the Zizkov neighbourhood. Next stop was the city of Dornbirn in the Austrian Alps, followed by a trifecta of shows at ALICE cph in Copenhagen and school concerts in Denmark. We were excited to make our Italian debut with concerts in Florence, Trieste and Gualtieri (famous for its Parmigiano Reggiano cheese) and a pit-stop in Venice, the city built on water. Wrapping up the tour was a special concert for the Indian Embassy to celebrate 70 years of Indo-Danish relations, apt as we are thrilled to welcome on board Air India Denmark for graciously providing travel support for the tour.
Next up was the Lakha Khan tour, starting with the prestigious WOMEX Showcase in Tampere, Finland. Zero degrees Celsius outside, but the warm tones of the sarangi and the powerful voice of Lakha Khan easily warming up a packed hall. Our next stop was at Le Guess Who? Festival in Utrecht, The Netherlands. One of the tour highlights - performing to another full house, this time in a 1000-year old cathedral (Jenskerk), and one of the 'Top 5 Festival Highlights'! Nine more concerts in Denmark, Czech Republic and Sweden wrapped up the maestro's third tour of Europe.
