Punkt Festival
Kristiansand, Norvegia
Varie sedi
31.8-2.9.2017

Come sempre Punkt è un festival fuori dall'ordinario e all'insegna dell'imprevisto e dell'imprevedibile. Una sorta di Industria 4.0 della musica: fuori dal “circolo" dei tour estivi, tipico dei festival jazz, e poco interessato a fotografare il passato e il presente, è invece molto attento ...

Read "Daniel Lanois: I Look for Commitment and a Lot of Heart and Soul" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Whenever I'm asked to name a list of Top 10 all time favorite records, the list slightly changes and shuffles every time. However, one of the most common denominators to those diverse lists is producer/musician Daniel Lanois.

Read "Daniel Lanois: Flesh and Machine" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

Credit should be given where it's due. Producer/musician Daniel Lanois has never been satisfied with just keep churning out the same kind of music for the same kind of audience that swooned over his song based records or the productions he did for other artists.
