Mixed bag of bands ready for Roskilde

"Mixed bag of bands ready for Roskilde | GoRockfest.Com - The Latest Rockfest, Artist's Live News"

Chico Trujillo, Les Espoirs de Coronthie, Kellermensch, Mouritz/Hørslev Projektet and Nedry take up some of the last available slots in this year's music programme.
The last available slots in the music programme are almost taken. Today's music package has flowers in all kinds of colours.

CHICO TRUJILLO (CHL) blends traditional, Colombian-inspired cumbia with ska and psychedelic rock sounds in a seven-men-strong formation – and today the band plays its energetic party rock everywhere, from stadiums and festivals to small clubs.

LES ESPOIRS DE CORONTHIE (GUI) play their spartan instruments with the same proud self-confidence and love as other, more privileged fellow townsmen play their turntables. Three singers in front complete the impression of a new West African star ensemble with equal parts musical glow and social indignation.

KELLERMENSCH (DK) plays hard-hitting rock full of crushing guitars, clenched fists and roaring vocals. Yet, the literary-minded band is not metal in the strict sense. The legacy of, for instance, Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen is also profound.

MOURITZ/HØRSLEV PROJEKTET (DK) serves up heart-tingling evergreens with appeal far beyond the literary salons. Mads Mouritz provides a backdrop of rock and pop to the black-haired author Lone Hørslev's humorous and poetic depictions of love, spirits and dreams about a TV show.

NEDRY (UK) blends dubstep and nerdy laptop electronica with 90s trip hop, making the result sound both nostalgic and brand-new. In addition, the band’s Japanese lead singer Ayu Okakita adds both femininity and vulnerability to the electrically spinning tunes.

Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens will not play after allUnfortunately, Roskilde will not have the pleasure of experiencing Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens at Roskilde Festival 2010 after all. The American singer and her ensemble do not have enough European concerts on their schedule for a tour across the Atlantic to make economic sense. Roskilde all hope that a concert with the soul diva will take place at some later point.
