MERIDIAN BROTHERS (CO)
Sunday 07.07.13 - 18:00 - Gloria
The sextet of Meridian Brothers do avantgarde pop from another dimension. The foundation is Latin and tropical rhythms from their homeland.
In a bubbling witch's brew of sunshine and madness, band leader Eblis Álvarez takes us into his vision of Latin America.
The crooked sounds are made out of lounge-like organs, seasick rhythms and steel brass. Latin king Tito Puente would recognise some of the tones – avant-garde pirates such as The Residents would recognise others, as would nutty composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen.
A semi-bizarre blend you will discover to be surprisingly addictive.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
