The demand for African music, fashion, and culture worldwide has restored a sense of pride to Africans everywhere with most yearning for a deeper connection with home, Davido reflectingly asks ‘Are we African Yet?‘, are we willing to claim our heritage and our culture? The A.W.A.Y Festival is an opportunity that urges the African diaspora and non-Africans around the world to find and celebrate each other roots and experience African culture like never before.

Afrobeats music is currently one of the fastest growing music genres, gaining global recognition and some of Africa’s finest artists will grace the stage alongside some of the hottest stars stateside, with headline performances by DAVIDO, KIZZ DANIEL, PHEELZ, LOJAY, VICTONY, OXLADE, BNXN, FOCALISTIC, AND MORE.

“Growing up, we were often made to feel unworthy as Africans, so many of us didn’t want to claim where we were from and in some cases denied our heritage. That’s not the case anymore, we are proud Africans, and we want to invite people to enjoy our culture our music, food, and art. That’s what The A.W.A.Y Festival is all about.” said, A.W.A.Y Festival Founder, Davido.

ARE WE AFRICAN YET?‘s mission is to unite communities, promote collaboration and celebrate the diversity and magic of African music and culture. It is an opportunity to build coalition between Africa and the world. Through the power of music, A.W.A.Y seeks to celebrate our shared parallels in culture, dance, clothing and provide an opportunity to empower everyone to build pride and claim their heritage proudly.

Alesso releases new music via 360 MAGAZINE

ALESSO × ZARA LARSSON

Global Swedish phenomenon Alesso expands the sonic world of his hit single “Words” featuring fellow Swedish pop star Zara Larsson with a massive “Words” remix package, out now via 10:22PM / Astralwerks. Listen HERE. The blazing EP boasts track reimaginings from Chapter & Verse, Sentinel, Arodes, and Majestic, plus Alesso’s very own VIP remix. The Swedish duo performed “Words” together for the first time at the recent Creamfields festival in the UK. Watch HERE.

Building on the original version of “Words” — a dreamy, progressive house anthem about being afraid to say “I love you” — Alesso’s chosen remixers showcase a variety of styles and sounds. Beyond the previously released Majestic and VIP mixes, UK DJ Chapter & Verse picks up the groove with a bumping tech house take, while Spanish producer Arodes goes for a marathonic house vibe with layers of mellow, sultry percussion. Australian trio Sentinel then get delightfully weird with distorted synths and hard-hitting hooks.

The “Words” remix package follows Alesso’s recent single “In My Feelings,” a seductive yet brooding collaboration with Deniz Koyu. This year, he also released the Sentinel-assisted progressive house anthem “Only You” and “Dark,” a moody and kinetic piece handcrafted for THE BATMAN. 

Meanwhile “Words” has already amassed over 135 million streams, charted in over 17 countries, and hit number 1 on U.S. dance radio marking back-to-back number 1s for Alesso following “When I’m Gone.” Recently “Words” debuted on Spotify’s Global 200 chart. Billboard crowned “Words” as the lead song for their “10 New Pop Songs To Get You Through The Week” roundup, ET hailed it one to have on “heavy rotation” and V Magazine called it a “song that is sure to be played at clubs everywhere this summer.” “Words” dropped months after the GRAMMY®-nominated visionary teamed up with Katy Perry for “When I’m Gone,” an irresistibly explosive track that saw him make his Saturday Night Live debut.

Outside of the studio, Alesso is deep into a new multi-year residency at TAO Las Vegas while joining Bad Bunny’s World’s Hottest Tour across multiple North American dates. Tickets are available for purchase HERE.

About El Cristiano:

Introducing El Cristiano, the world’s finest and additive free ultra premium tequila, made by third generation master tequila makers from the finest Jalisco Highlands Blue Agave.  El Cristiano is dedicated to producing the purist tequila with no additives – (85% of tequila today has sugars and thickeners added) – with a high focus on harvesting only mature agave aged at least five years and certain sizing through sustainable agriculture practices.

NURKO – ETERNITY

On August 19, 2022, New York producer NURKO returns with soaring new single Eternity” featuring Dayce Williams, out via Astralwerks. Listen to the dreamy floor-filler HERE. The single is NURKO‘s first release since signing to the boundary-pushing electronic music label.

The wistful track finds vocalist Williams desperately attempting to salvage a relationship. “Tell me what you mean, I’m in the in-between,” he sings. “Isn’t it obvious that I wanna do you right?” Meanwhile, NURKO‘s production is slow-burning, growing from stripped-back, angelic string plucks into a whirlwind build and cascading drop. It’s an explosive backdrop to match the chorus’ impassioned refrain: “I’m praying for eternity.” Dreamy yet hard-hitting, “Eternity” proves that NURKO is already a master of emotionally rich electronic music.

The track follows the release of Arrival Remixes, a collection of artist remixes stemming from NURKO‘s debut EP Arrival, released back in March. The original EP-which includes singles “Disappearing Now” featuring Chandler Leighton and “Lost Without You” with Crystal Skies and KnownAsNat-earned rave reviews from the dance world, with EDM Identity calling it a “heart-fluttering masterpiece.”

NURKO broke through in 2021 with the biggest song of his career so far, “Sideways.” The collaboration with ILLENIUM and Valerie Broussard has already logged over 30 million Spotify streams. Fans can experience NURKO‘s cathartic tracks in person as he continues his cross-country U.S. travels. In addition to dates at Morrison, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Hollywood’s Academy LA, he’ll be playing festivals including Bass Canyon, Lost Lands, Groove Cruise Cabo, and Freaky Deaky.

POP MONTREAL 21st  EDITION

POP Montreal 21st edition is just weeks away. It’s time to get excited! The notion of “going back to normal” isn’t really POP Montreal‘s jam. They will forever be moving forward, doing their best to care of their community and create spaces that allow for all kinds of voices to come together. One of the lessons they’ve learned over the “panini” is that being in relation with each other is the essential ingredient of culture. So let’s come together and experience the most delicious musical sandwich the city can offer. It’s thrilled to fill in the festival palette with all kinds of awesome gems. Adding to the previously announced festival headliners (including Allison Russell, Tortoise, The Linda Lindas, Cymande, Wayne Snow, Lydia Képinski, Martha Wainwright, Haru Nemuri), it is pleased to announce over 100 more artists who will be performing at the festival this year.

Art POP
At Projet Casa and Rialto

Art POP will be hosting its annual group exhibition (for the first time at Project Casa gallery) alongside several satellite events that will bring film screenings, literary readings and workshops into various spaces surrounding POP Quarters in Mile End.  

//At a distance – from within//, presented at the Project Casa gallery
in the Plateau from Sept 15 to Oct 2.
At a distance from within is an exhibition that examines the exercise of placemaking within a diasporic context, while also connecting this theme to ecological allegories in relationality. In its Greek etymology, diaspora refers to the ancient Greek “dia speiro”, which translates “to sow over.” Originating from Jewish history and identity, the word has been expanded to define those who have been dispersed from a common origin. //At a distance – from within// draws from the allegory of the seed as an entity that creates a sense of rhizomatic placemaking. This relational form of placemaking refers then to the flourishing of communities, practices, and exchanges that come from diverse and multiple diasporas. 

With the work of : Holly Chang, Jin Heewoong, Joyce Joumaa, Kuh del Rosario, Laura Acosta and Santiago Tavera, Melissa Raymond and René Sandín, My-Van Dam, Natalia Lasalle-Morillo and Sofía Gallisá Muriente, Par Nair, Santiago Tamayo Soler, et Vanessa Godden.

Aside from the exhibition at Project Casa, Art POP will be partnering with Projet Tabloïde to present artwork from Toronto-based artist Holly Chang in the corner of Mont-Royal and Saint Hubert.

Expozine and Art POP present //LECTURES POP READS, 5th edition / / 
Sept 28 – 19h, Rialto Theatre

An evening of readings presenting the work of French and English Montreal publishers, as part of POP Montreal 2022.

LOVE (Québec) and Art POP present //Time Metaphor//
Sept 28 – Oct 2 – Studio Rialto.
Art POP is also thrilled to renew its collaboration with LOVE (Québec)  a non-profit organization which seeks to support youth with programs that teach them about healthy relationships, building emotional intelligence, and that help them overcome the challenges they face. For this year’s LOVE and POP Montreal collaboration, a creative workshop was led by artists Dayna Danger and Megan kanerahtenha:wi Whyte. The young participating artists created a triptych to represent the past, present, and future relationships between humanity and nature across time, as well as the need for compassion towards the environment, oneself, and others.

Bendigo Fletcher – Pterodactyl

Ahead of their appearance at this weekend’s Newport Folk Festival, Louisville, KY’s Bendigo Fletcher have unveiled their brand new single “Pterodactyl.” The song is available to stream and download beginning today via Elektra Records HERE.

On “Pterodactyl,” the critically acclaimed quintet continue to perfect their warm patchwork of alternative, Americana, psychedelia, and soul. Working out of Nashville, TN’s Cartoon Moon Studios, the band reunited with producer and original Wilco/Uncle Tupelo drummer Ken Coomer. Meanwhile, they recruited Grizzly Bear bassist Chris Taylor to mix the track. Lyrically, “Pterodactyl” draws up a pensive and poetic rumination on the future of a budding romance and the ripple effect one love often invites.

About the song, frontman Ryan Anderson commented, “‘Pterodactyl’ was a kind of self-soothing progression that gradually bloomed with instrumentation and textures in the studio. The repetitive rhythm feels like walking to the park in my neighborhood and just trying to feel peace. Ultimately, itߣs a reflection on the inspiration I take from the feeling of togetherness in both my relationship and in humanity in general.

“Pterodactyl” marks Bendigo Fletcher’s first new music since the release of their 2021 debut album Fits Of Laughter. Highlighted by singles “Sugar In The Creek” and “Evergreen,” the eight-track collection is available HERE via Elektra Records. Beyond amassing millions of streams, the album earned widespread critical acclaim. FLOOD Magazine hailed it as “Somewhere between the post-Woodstock folk scene of the ߢ70s and that decade’s burgeoning hard rock movement,and Music Connection dubbed it, “Alt-rock, country-flecked folk-rock soaked in LSD,” American Songwriter noted it as “Denser psych-rock with some remaining elements of Bendigo Fletcher’s drifting folk-Americana roots,” and Atwood Magazine praised “Fits Of Laughter soars with charming passion.

Renowned for their inimitable live performances, Bendigo Fletcher supported the release of Fits Of Laughter with extensive headline runs and tours supporting Anderson East, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and Shakey Graves. This Sunday, Bendigo Fletcher will perform at Newport Folk Festival 2022. Shortly after, they will support Madison Cunningham on a coast-to-coast North American tour, beginning August 4 in Minneapolis, MN at Fine Line Music Cafe and visiting major markets across U.S. and Canada before concluding on October 22 in Washington, DC at Capital Turnaround. A complete list of upcoming tour dates can be found below. Tickets are available now HERE.

“Pterodactyl” sets the stage for more new music to come from Bendigo Fletcher later this year.

The unfiltered anthem is accompanied by a luxurious visual shot in and around one of the group’s live shows. “Just Hit Me” is the first new single from the group since March’s acclaimed EP See The Difference.

On “Just Hit Me,” pristine synth melodies are buoyed by a bouncy bassline and percussion deeply rooted in the West Coast rap tradition. DJ handles the first verse, spitting smoothly about the privileges his lifestyle affords him. “They let me look up in the back when I can’t find things,” he raps. “Wearing shit up out the store ain’t gotta iron these.” Jeeezy Obama, for his part, also celebrates his ascension to a life of luxury, detailing all the perks that such a rise entails. It’s another reminder of the casual brilliance of BlueBucksClan’s stylish bars.

Directed by LewisYouNasty, the video for “Just Hit Me” features shots of the California duo performing before rapturous crowds and hanging in fancy cars. It’s all tied together with inventive editing, which underscores how surreal the scale of their success can feel. Above all, the clip is a showcase of their effortless camaraderie and well-earned confidence.

With Just Hit Me,” BlueBucksClan build on the momentum of recent projects like See the Difference and Clan Virus 2The praise for the latter was overwhelming with Pitchfork calling them “L.A.’s best duo.” Complex and Billboard also recently hailed them as “Rappers to Watch.” BlueBucksClan have now amassed more than 177 million streams in the US alone – a number that’s sure to only grow with the arrival of singles like Just Hit Me.

Piano City Milano 2022

May 20, 21 and 22 see the return of PIANO CITY MILANO 2022, with the eleventh edition of the most eagerly awaited piano festival of the year. Promoted and organized by Associazione Pianocity Milano and the Municipality of Milan, the event is recognized as one of Italy’s most prestigious music festivals.

216 unmissable concerts across the whole city of Milan with more than 300 artists performing in 100 magnificent locations will carry the audience with their pianos on a wonderful emotional musical journey. Piano City Milano is a unique event that brings institutions, associations and partners to collaborate in making Milan ever more dynamic, through an incredible number of concerts all over the city. Curated by Ponderosa Music & Art and Accapiù, the project boasts artistic direction from Ricciarda Belgiojoso and Titti Santini

“There are events that can speak about the city to the city: Piano City Milano is one of them” states the Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala. “During this extraordinary three-day festival, the universal language of music will truly echo throughout Milan. Over 300 highly talented artists will perform and bring to life historical sites, remarkable new locations and emerging spaces that are under development. Unique, emotion-fuelled piano concerts allow the audience to discover how the city is changing”.

“How many places in the last ten years have we discovered by following the sound of a piano? How much music have we listened to and how many musicians have we discovered by attending a Piano City Milano event since the first edition in 2012? How many pianists and spectators have been able to share the joy of a live concert performance? These questions cannot be answered in numerical terms, but I am certain that the overall value of the interactions between music and the city is very high, and that this is the deepest sense of the event,” explains Tommaso Sacchi from the Milan Department for Culture. “This is why I am certain that this eleventh edition will once again be a great celebration for the whole city.”

“With Piano City Milano, a lively and dynamic city joins forces with music from all over the world. Pianos take their place in every neighborhood, from the gardens of Galleria d’Arte Moderna to beyond the edges of the city, in Milan’s new places and in other spaces that are under transformation and are being opened up for the first time for the festival. We offer new perspectives on Milan and on music, starting with the opening concert by the great Abdullah Ibrahim. This will be followed by an array of other remarkable Italian and international names with music created for the occasion, plus amazing six-piano and eight-hand events. The festival captivates the city with the sound of the piano and a huge thank you goes to the partners that make this extraordinary event possible,” concludes Ricciarda Belgiojoso, Artistic Director of Piano City Milano.

Piano City Milano is the result of an extraordinary collaboration between public institutions and private companies that allow free entrance to all concerts. It is an example of a remarkable synergy which this year brings together the Municipality of Milan, its  Department of Culture and main partners Intesa Sanpaolo and Corriere della Sera, along with Volvo, Hermès for talent-support, institutional partners Regione Lombardia and Fondazione Cariplo, charging partner Be Charge, Snai San Siro Racetrack, Università Bocconi, Conad as well as technical partners AIARP, Steinway & Sons, Fazioli, Griffa & Figli, Passadori Pianoforti, Tarantino Pianoforti, Tagliabue, Schimmel Pianos, Shigeru Kawai, Scorticati Pianoforti, Fabbrini and Barletta Pianoforti. The event’s media partners are Radio Monte Carlo, ViviMilano, Classica HD Sky, Wired, Zero, Lampoon, Pianosolo, Club Milano and Mi-Tomorrow.

There are also collaborations with a number of prestigious musical institutions such as Teatro alla Scala, Milan Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Verdi, the Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado, the Bergamo Conservatorio Gaetano Donizetti, Premio Venezia and Festival Milano Musica.

The festival returns to enhance Milan, inviting the public to discover new perspectives on one-of-a-kind contexts, old and new neighborhoods, the city’s symbolic locations, and places undergoing redevelopment, spaces that have been opened up especially for this occasion. Each concert has been created for its location, with musical genres that range from classical to pop and from jazz to electronic.

In addition to historic venues such as the GAM Gardens, Volvo Studio Milano, the Rotonda della Besana (home of the Milan Children’s Museum MUBA), Triennale Milano Teatro, the Museo Teatrale alla Scala, and the Snai San Siro Racetrack, the event will also be held in important new spaces such as the Bocconi Campus park, the ADI Design Museum, the Passeggiata Boris Pasternak at the Feltrinelli Foundation, Piazza Olivetti in the Symbiosis business district, and the garden of Via Ludovico di Breme in the Certosa District. There is a special focus on the outskirts of the city too, with concerts in the MM courtyards, in the fields of Vaiano Valle, in the Adriano district, in barn conversions turned cultural centers, and at Casa Enzo Jannacci, Europe’s largest social support center. Plus, there will also be music in the parks of Villa Finzi, Chiesa Rossa, Parco delle Cave and Parco Lambro.

The complete program of events for Piano City Milano 2022 is available on the festival’s official website HERE. All concerts are free of charge and booking is not required unless stated otherwise on the printed and digital program for events where places are to be reserved.
