A Street Called Markt – Listening Session with Cucina Povera

16.07.2021, 19:00

Cucina Povera is the solo project of Luxembourgish-Finnish musician Maria Rossi. Having studied music at the Conservatoire de Luxembourg, she moved to Scotland to shift the academy against Glasgow’s underground music scene. There she continued to create her distinct way of blending her crystal clear and angelic voice with subtle placed and clean electronics. Rossis music unveils with a minimal selection of elements a highly emotive landscape, where the warmth of her chorus inspired singing, meets the icy alieness of computer generated sounds. Since her striking debut album on Glasgows Night School label in 2018, already two other albums followed. Cucina Povera creates a unique universe, and is part of the Listening Sessions A Street Called Markt at the Frankfurter Kunstverein.

A Street Called Markt is a series of musical performances, that gives a glimpse into the current sphere of experimental music. With Geier aus Stahl (Austria), Cucina Povera (Scotland) and kNN (Italy) each of the three evenings will unfold its very own experience of listening and invite you to uncover new places at the outskirts of contemporary musical ideas. Through their unorthodox approaches to writing music, all three artists create different sonic languages using electronic and acoustic instruments. Each of the live performances will be accompanied by a DJ set to round up the evening. The series houses a diverse range of musical encounters at Frankfurter Kunstverein, to display different spectres of an upcoming generation of artists making music in Europe.

Admission to the Listening Sessions costs €3.
