The Herbaliser at East of Culture – Different Sounds Art’n’Music Festival 2019


The Herbaliser, the living legends of British jazz and club music and one of the leading representatives of the iconic label Ninja Tune will perform at East of Culture – Different Sounds that takes place between 27-30 June 2019.

 The Herbaliser was set up in London in the 1990s by two producers and musicians – Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry. In this project, they have made a very skillful instrumental fusion of jazz, hip-hop, funky and a number of other inspirations. It has given them room to develop their own concept of progressive club music. Today, this original collective are celebrated as legends of the British jazz and electronic club music. The artists also rank among some of the most influential bands of the turn of the century – an extremely creative and important time for the British music scene. It was then that the next wave of contemporary music from the Isles conquered global markets. The period gave rise to the Bristol trip hop by Massive Attack and Portishead, Prodigy recorded one hit after another, and London was dominated by such labels as Ninja Tune or Warp Records which focused, among others, on acid jazz, jungle, ambient or IDM. The Herbaliser’s founders have been with Ninja Tune from the start and the band has been one of the label’s flagships for many years, along with Amon Tobin, Bonobo or Coldcut. In Lublin, we will see them perform with the nine-piece live line-up and they will be one of the main stars of the upcoming East of Culture- Different Sounds.

The Herbaliser will perform in Lublin on Friday, 28 June 2019 in Błonia near the Castle.  Just like for all other events at East of Culture – Different Sounds, the admission is free.

 This year’s edition of East of Culture – Different Sounds takes place between 27-30 June 2019. Once again, music will become an inspiration and a point of departure for a free exchange of ideas, discussions on the dynamically changing world and a search for what is shared in it, perceptually sensed at the level of natural human sensitivity. Different Sounds is a meeting of different genres, styles and harmonies that come together in the universal need for self-expression. It is here at Different Sounds that world-class stars of alternative music share the stage with rising stars from the east, and the masters and pioneers of genres vital to the development of music meet pioneers of new niches and seekers of original sounds. All this shapes the unique character of the event and its one-of-a-kind atmosphere.

More announcements of the many artists to perform in Lublin at the end of June are coming soon.

East of Culture is a pr­oject carried out by the National Centre of Culture with the financial support from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, in cooperation with the local governments of Rzeszów, Lublin and Białystok.
