MARK ERNESTUS presents JERI-JERI (DE/SN)

Mark Ernestus is a well-known German techno and dub pioneer. He is also head-over-heels in love with mbalax, a complex dance music genre from Western Africa. For a European it may sound like a blend of post-rockers Tortoise and German hypnosis techno played on wooden instruments.

With five percussionists, Senegalese Jeri-Jeri’s music sounds like stepping into a spiral of syncopated rhythms with the shimmering vocals of Mbene Diatta Secks on top. As an ambassador, mastermind and producer for this clan of musicians, Mark Ernestus is making the world a larger and roomier place for music lovers.

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.
