As usual the JCF night-life will move to Alchemia: the stage in the club cellar will be taken over by festival artists. We look forward to seeing you at Midnite Sessions, four nights of unpredictable improvised music which shows the essential richness and diversity of the Jewish culture.
LXMP is a duo that probably should be a trio or a quartet but it’s more fun with just two people. Founded in 2009 by Piotr Zabrodzki and Macio Moretti out of their shared love for Korg MS-20, LXMP quickly replaced their previous duo 60 Minut Projekt and became a […]
