𝐁𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐎𝐫𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄 Brass band balkan-anachronique, le Bernard Orchestar fait des pompes tous les matins. Sportifs et hors compétition, les champions de l’équipe à Bernard ont traversé l’Europe de l’Est en courant, jusqu’aux portes de l’Orient. Les joggeurs de demain reviennent maintenant avec un répertoire festif et athlétique, dopé(s) à l’électro. Ce que ces spartiates en survêt’ préfèrent, c’est suer sur scène. Ils branchent les synthés, lustrent les cuivres… C’est parti pour la boum du futur, nostalgique mais visionnaire, musclée mais sensible. Il faut s’échauffer avant d’y aller, mais surtout ne pas les rater! https://bernardorchestar.bandcamp.com https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK-JgHgmqGKsJGVMsHTyqyQ
𝐀𝐥𝐦𝐚 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐚 (𝐂𝐋) Based in Berlin, born in Chile and raised all-around western Europe, DJ, producer, journalist and activist Alma Linda is a dancefloor magician, with an open heart and a sharing soul. Her music breaks down borders and is inspired by rhythms from diverse cultural backgrounds, and united through the pulse of electronic beats.

𝐁𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐫 (𝐂𝐎) Luis Felipe Hernandez aka Bleepolar is a DJ / producer hailing from Colombia, bridging the gap between organic and electronic music. He learned music as a drummer, then took his knowledge into the world of music producing and later DJ’ing. Since his debuts as a techno and house producer, he started integrating the rich folkloric tradition of his homeland, with cumbia or champeta. As he develloped as an artist, he kept widening his inspirations to afro-latin music in general, and lately dived into the new sounds of urban Africa, focusing on genres like Afrohouse and Amapiano, while keeping the deep, minimal and elegant electronic aesthetic that became his signature sound. https://www.bleepolar.com/ https://bleepolar.bandcamp.com/
