Institut Ramon Llull
20:00 @ GlogauAIR
Using texts in which street slang and literary language merge with archaic speech, Roger Mas is able to create a special and spontaneous atmosphere with the support of the audience. Irredemp concert gets its inspiration from three sources: modern music, Mas' own tradition and traditional music from all over the world.
Roger Mas (Solsona, 1975) was born in a family of musics. During his early career as singer and composer he won the Premi de Catalunya Ràdio in 1996. Since then he has released 9 albums, for each of his projects he has obtained different distinctions and recognition from the critics and developed a honest songwriter personality. His work is marked by a great and clear creativity and shows why Roger Mas is one of the rising voices of the European songwriting scene.
The concert will take place at GlogauAIR, non profit organization that was founded in 2006 by the spanish artist Chema Alvargonzález, to create a meeting point for artists of different disciplines and encourage the collaboration between different artistic profiles and nationalities. With this aim regularly take place at GlogauAIR the Open Studios Exhibitions as well as other events like video and sound art, performance festivals and concerts. The residence is located in one of the Jugendstil buildings conceived as a school by the renowned architect Ludwig Hoffman in 1896.
A collaboration with the Government of Catalonia and the Institut Ramon Llull.
