Southern Soul Festival announces its seventh edition that will be held from 26 June until 1 July 2019. One of the novelties of this year’s festival is that it will last six days, instead of the usual four, with an extra welcome party and farewell party.
As in previous years, the SSF team worked hard to bring to the beach in
Ulcinj the big names of the independent
world music scene.
This year, SSF will have the honour
to host the great legends of Brazilian music Airto Moreira and Flora Purim. Airto Moreira is a percussionist and
drummer who collaborated with legends of jazz, such as Miles Davis, Dizzy
Gillespie, Chick Corea, Weather Report and Antonio Carlos Jobim, and has become
one of the most prominent names on the world jazz scene. Flora Purim, the
heroin of Brazilian jazz sound, will share the stage with Airtom for, most probably, their last European tour. We will
also have the opportunity to hear a ten-member band from Naples with Berlin
address Nu Guinea, as well as this
year’s surprise Mayer’s Indonesia-jazz
fusion band from western London. Big afrobeat band Nubiyan Twist is also coming from the UK, and from Amsterdam we
will have a party attraction The
Mauskovic Dance band. The big name of the house scene, New York-based DJ,
producer, keyboardist and vocalist Josh
Milan comes with his band from the US. A new European attraction Jan Kinčl & Regis Kattie are coming from Zagreb.
