Boris Grebenshchikov

Boris Grebenshchikov and Light Music present: the first world music festival "Parts of the World" in St. Petersburg! The main goal of this project is to show the richness of modern music and traditions of different countries, as well as unite people with the interest in the diversity of cultures.

Two stages set up in the Yusupov Garden, will feature the British ska, Tuareg blues, Irish folk fusion and a scattering of other exotic melodies from various countries and continents.

What does "World Music" mean?

It means that the festival will open its doors to musicians from all over the world. For those who remember their roots but are not afraid to look forward, cross the boundaries of genres, and experiment. World-famous musicians and virtuosos will be among them. Representatives of full-fledged music school, as well as pioneers. British reggae, Tuareg blues, Irish fusion - all flags will visit us!

 What does Boris Grebenshchikov have to do with this?

 Boris Grebenshchikov is the ideological inspirer and art director of the festival. It is he who has selected musicians for all the stages of "Parts of the World". Just like for his weekly radio program "Aerostat", the musician selects those musicians whose music he loves most and personally enjoys listening to.

In addition, his band Aquarium will perform a special "international" program jointly with the festival participants.

The major intrigue of the upcoming event will be the performance of Terakaft from Mali, which plays Tuareg blues and makes a musical revolution among African sands. In addition to these exotic guests, the festival will present Georgian pilgrims Mgzavrebi, the Irish folk veterans Flook, the Austrian project of hang drum virtuoso Manu Delago, the flagship of the British ska The Beat, the Aquarium band with a special program and other stars of world music in all its international diversity.

MGZAVREBI band took shape in Tbilisi in 2006 and currently is the voice of modern Georgia. The Tuva group Yat-Ha is a rock and roll project, with its music combining the mysterious energy of boundless Tuvan steppes and the drive of modern rock music, Tuvan throat singing and various music instruments.

Flook, the Irish project of flute virtuoso Brian Finnegan, who is a permanent creative associate of Boris Grebenshchikov, is the best folk band according to the BBC Radio version.

The Beat feat. Ranking Roger, a British ska revival band, has developed its inimitable style, the alternation of traditional pop vocal and Jamaican DJ's manner.

Manu Delago is one of the world’s best hang drummer, percussionist, producer and composer. Juan José Mosalini is one of the greatest masters of modern tango.

What will festival provide along with music?

A huge World Market with souvenirs, clothes, food from different countries will unfold at the festival. In addition, interactive exhibition zones with exotic musical instruments will run in the festival area, and master classes in traditional world dances, from salsa to roundelay, will take place in between music concerts.

Where and when?

The festival will be held in the Yusupov garden, in the center of St. Petersburg from 3 pm to 11 pm on September 9.
