LES FRERES SMITH (FR)
Friday 06.07.12 - 13:45 - Cosmopol
With their blend of Afrobeat and funk with an ethnic flavour, Les Freres Smith is a well-described name at the Paris venues.
The city of lights is a multi-ethnic melting pot with especially many African emigrants, and the Pan-African atmosphere is easy to feel at the brothers' hot concerts, which will probably make Fela Kuti and James Brown high-five in the Hereafter.
If you were at the Kuti sons' multi-funk blast last Roskilde summer on the Arena stage, you're probably hungry for more. Les Freres Smith is at least one of the answers to your prayers.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
