We have a bumper show with one of Germany’s most eloquent songwriters , low key, literary and musically authentic Rio Mario with Hanna Ehleben and Sophie Vardigans. Rio Mario marries eloquent German texts with a real understanding of authentic Irish and American folk and country. World music from Syria with the amazingly talented 118 Band featuring percussionist Alaa Salah Eddine , Oud player Cham Salloum and Laila Mahmoud on Qanon , The band featured recently at the two day World Music Festival at the Pop Academy in Mannheim and we are looking forward to a collaboration with one of our other guests, the story of how the band got its name and some fine world music. A rare treat. Our third guest is a firm favourite at the GaslightCafe and has just released a new track hilariously highlighting the autotune epidemic in rap which he mercilessly exposes over a killer beat. This time Hodi Flow brings with him Drummer Hasan Usgür Tuna and Valentin Stötzer on Keyboards to provide the musical backdrop to his wordsmith talents
Patrick Destandeau sound-man extraordinaire and boss at Cloud29 Studio will make sure your ears are treated with the highest respect and cameraman Max P Martin whose wonderful klein but fine Photo exhibition at Friedrich is still running will capture it all for posterity. It’s the last show of the year folks, hope to see you all there. For people who were friends of Gringos little footnote. Brian O’Hara of Gringo blackboard fame and much more is flying in for the show. Last time he did that I had a heart attack on the morning of the show and we had to cancel hehe, lets hope this time his visit is a little less eventful.
