7th edition of the festival will be held from 12 to 15 June 2014 at Zamek Culture Centre.
The three festival stages will see performances by fifteen artists and groups who represent diverse, sometimes very remote cultures. The Festival, this genuine celebration of music, will begin with a concert of an outstanding composer, vocalist and instrumentalist, Dhafer Youssef. On the first day, you are also welcome to partake in the joy of music and dance in the Castle Courtyard courtesy of Dom Tańca Poznań.
The following days will bring a true mosaic of musical traditions. There will be artists from Finland, Romania, India, Korea, Hungary, Congo, Turkey, USA, Jamaica, Brasil and Iran. Each day will aslo a feature a performance by artists from the Polish scene of world music.
The invited artists do not differ only in terms of country or origins but also in the manner of approaching traditional material from which their music springs. Each and every one of them has their own way of rendering source material on stage: from meticulous reconstruction of the historical sounds to free and unconstrained use of the potential inherent in their harmonies and rhythms. The diversity of approach is also evident in the choice of the “tools”: traditional instruments go side by side with electric guitars and state-of-the-art electronics. Apart from the giving the audience an opportunity to get to know the “Other”, showing that creative freedom manifested in the artists’ choice is one of the major tasks we seek to accomplish when developing the programme of successive editions of the Festival.
Besides concerts, which are Ethno Port’s core events, the audience may attend the accompanying events: meetings and film screenings (as part of the Ethno Dossier project, prepared by AMU’s Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology), music workshops and special activities for children.
The Festival will once again transform the space in the very heart of Poznań: throughout the week, the car park in front of the castle will become a green meadow, showing how little is needed to change our surroundings into a friendly space.
