6:30 pm Karandila live
Prince Metternich supposedly once said that the Balkans begin on Rennweg, an avenue in Vienna’s 3rd district. But this winter, the Balkans are right here in the MQ.
The Gypsy brass orchestra Karandila is coming to Vienna for the opening of Winter in the MQ to raise a storm with its wildly raucous ethnic music. Alongside Boban Markovic and Fanfare Ciocarlia, Karandila are considered one of the hottest acts in the orchestra wave. They blend traditional Balkan wedding music with a vortex of frenzied, improvised jazz elements to create an expressive experience of oriental tradition.
7:45 pm Cool Kids Performance with DSCHUNGEL WIEN Artists
As part of the children’s program in Winter in the MQ, performance artists Adriana Cubides and Raul Maia provide playful winter entertainment with indoor and outdoor activities in the MQ courtyards and in DSCHUNGEL WIEN.
Starting at 7:30 pm DJ Karuan [Sunshine Rec]
Karuan builds a bridge between traditional Kurdish and electronic music. His remarkable debut album Dohuki Ballet had massive airplay on international radio stations like JazzFM (London), Radio Fritz (Berlin), Radio Oxigenio (Lisbon), and Radio FM4 (Austria).
He produced the soundtrack for Exile Family Movie, a recent film that received the Best Documentary Film award at the Austrian Diagonale film festival.
Served up by Café Leopold, Café.Restaurant HALLE, Dschungel Café / ra’mien, Glacis Beisl, Kantine, and MUMOKKA in the Ice Palace for half an hour after the DSCHUNGEL WIEN Performance.
