Entropia, Hańba! and JAAA! are slated to play two shows each at the famous Barcelona festival.
As part of the Don’t Panic! We’re from Poland showcase, Entropia, Hańba! and JAAA! will be participating in and performing at the Primavera Sound Music Festival’s PrimaveraPro music networking event on 30th May 2017. They will also all play another set at Primavera Sound in Parc del Fòrum on 1st June 2017.
PrimaveraPro, now in its eighth year, is a chance for bands and business professionals to network, discuss where music is now and where the future of music business is heading. With bands from Australia, South Africa, Brazil and other countries attending this year, the event aims to promote the exchange of ideas and the sharing of resources and music on a global scale.
The Don’t Panic! We’re from Poland project was initiated by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in 2008 to promote contemporary Polish music worldwide. Don’t Panic!’s mission is simple: to share Poland’s rich and vibrant music scene with music lovers around the globe. They have brought Polish acts to festivals around the world such as SXSW in the US, C/O Pop in Germany, Liverpool Sound City in the UK and Primavera with Entropia, Hańba! and JAAA! in tow this time around. Last year, Don’t Panic! brought RSS B0YS and Merkabah to Primavera. This year audiences in Barcelona will have the opportunity to listen to three acts with entirely different sounds and aesthetics.
Entropia comes from Poland’s heavier side of its musical palate. Described as a psychedelic metal band, Entropia draws inspiration from krautrock and psytrance music in order to share their psychedelic philosophies and views on neutrality and openness to their audience. Their last album Ufonaut came out February 2016 and they are currently working on their third album.
Utilising instruments often found in the hands of street musicians (banjo, accordion, tuba and drums), Hańba! weaves literary tales through their punk-rock-turned-folk sound. This Cracovian quartet channels the Polish traditions of punk, folk and klezmer music and the words of interwar poets to make the image of lively Polish streets come alive onstage.
JAAA! is far more ethereal and electronic than the former acts, but their tight instrumentality mixed with the flowing and trance-like vocals create a wonderfully packaged sound. Their live visuals are equally as stunning, as evident from their video for the song Remik. Together, their live show will be sure to wow Primavera audiences.
Primavera runs 31st May to 4th June 2017 in Barcelona. A full schedule can be found on the festival’s website: https://www.primaverasound.com/
