"Island Light" in the open air - an unprecedented event!

June 15 2006

Surprises are expected in the beginning: the festival kicks off on July 1 and will begin with speeches Omar Torrez Band, Sca Jazz Review and ... Jethro Tull! Those who missed the last Moscow concert of the legendary British band, can catch up, because who would not say that - after all Jethro Tull - an outstanding team and still in uniform.

In the other day of the festival appeared on stage jazz diva Nino Katamadze, "Aquarium", led by its permanent leader Boris Grebenshchikov, the group "5` nizza »with powerful software, but for many the main surprise will be the speech of the famous singer Skin! This singer has traveled to Russia, but not with a solo concert, but only to sing the opening act for Robbie Williams. Some then grumbled that the headliner and the heating should be reversed, and went to a concert for Skin. And then the singer comes again, that can not but rejoice.

Skin attracted attention even in the days when she sang in the band Skunk Anasie. The charismatic singer with a strong voice, wide range of feeding and dramatic - in general, do not see this talented woman was impossible. One of the first hits was the song «Weak As I Am», in which the singer with all her characteristic expression, brought listeners a glow of emotion, that of the group immediately began to talk. And when about 6 years ago Skunk Anasie invited to speak at the annual charity concert "Pavarotti & Friends", the staff presented only one track, and in addition Skin sang a few songs in Italian, a duet with Pavarotti himself. Presumably, an invitation to sing several numbers with Pavarotti, indicates the presence of special musical and performing talent. In Moscow, Skin will perform July 12.

Festival "Island Light" will be held from 1 to 28 of July, according to the preliminary schedule made by the following artists:

July 1 - Omar Torrez Band, Sca Jazz Review, Jethro Tull
July 6 - "Aquarium"
July 12 - Esthetic Education, Skin
July 13 - Nino Katamadze
15 July - 5 `nizza

The idea of the festival - search talent in various fields. Organizers promise to build the ethnic villages, where every day will be workshops of scientists, charity performances, lessons, music, dance, drama, etnoperformansy and fireworks.

By the way, the appearance of the festival are relevant notorious company GreenWaveMusic and the "transmission". Already an alliance that seems promising - Dibrov, host of "transmission" as a rule, finds interesting musicians to participate in their projects. GreenWaveMusic, in turn, has repeatedly brought to Russia groups playing music for advanced listeners. As we have already learned Dibrov through its Learn encourages participation in the festival artists and volunteers, so the "Island of Light" can be considered the first event of its kind. Judge for yourself: Traditionally, one "by" are not called to take part in the concert program, which claimed the star of this level. Already for this reason that the festival is of interest and promises to be one of the highlights of this summer.
