The Independent Music Festival “EARTHQUAKE: 6” is taking place on Saturday, February 3rd from 7 pm until 5am at MKC - Youth Cultural Center.
Tickets priced 200 denars in a limited number can be purchased at the MKC's ticket office.
“Earthquake” is a music festival of Macedonian independent record labels, initiated in 2012 by “Napravi Zaedno” (current “Balkan Veliki”), “Sixtynine Records” and “PMG Recordings”, and realized in cooperation with the Youth Cultural Center. Every year, “Earthquake” presents the freshest of the Macedonian alternative music scene.
In addition to the music program at three stages, in the hall of MKC will be placed editions of the record labels as well as promotional materials of the bands.
Dance Fest begins the year of the dance with an extraordinary Chinese play to open the season. The performance "Fen Mo" will be performed on January 24th at the Macedonian National Theater in Skopje.
The play "Fen Mo" is inspired by the saying "If a painter using all the ink can allude to the five colors, then he knows the essence of painting, but he must not focus solely on the colors, because he will move away from the essence" from the book "Records of painting of all dynasties" by Yan Yuan Zang from the Tang Dynasty (618-907).
The choreographer tries to revive the unique aesthetic form of Chinese painting through the movements of the dancers. The choreography uses traditional Chinese elements such as "breath", "crutches", "hair", "sleeves", "sword", "fan", "umbrella" and "dress" to convey feelings of friendship, sadness, indignation , annoyance, excellence, relaxation and love in the Chinese spiritual world, which contains the essence of Chinese classics.
Tickets are on sale at the MNT ticket office. The price of the ticket is 400 den.
The international festival of comedy "Gola Mesecina" (Naked Moon) will be held from June 19 to June 26 in the Municipality of Aerodrom.
Thievery Corporation - one of the most exciting bands from the global concert industry, comes in Skopje to open the summer music festival - Skopje Calling 2017.
Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka: Thievery Corporation, have kept the flame of trip-hop alive since the late 1990s. Their music style mixes elements of dub, acid jazz, Indian classical and Brazilian (such as bossa nova) with a lounge aesthetic.
On this concert tour the band is promoting their recently released album - "The Temple of I & I". Recorded in Jamaica no less, the LP has that modern reggae sound, with a mixture of live instrumentation, local guest vocalists and digital trickery, all mixed together like a chilled rum and cola, sipped on a sunny evening.
Tickets are already on sale and can be bought through the sales networks of kupikartizase.com and JUGOTON (GTC). Ticket price is 990 MKD.
Concert starts at 21:00
