An Airy Windcraft Music Fest – Katydata


This year’s Windcraft Music Fest will be more “airy” than ever, with bands combining different music traditions of the world and the winds giving the lead to a lively musical celebration.

It’s the fourth time that the Windcraft Music Fest (Youth Award 2016, Category Culture) returns to the picturesque village of Katydata for a musical weekend of concerts, workshops, screenings and parallel activities. The winds will be starring also in this year’s line-up, which will feature local and international artists and bands showcasing their original music projects, which are influenced by music traditions of the world. The festival will take us from European jazz and classical music to the brass sound of the Balkans and the melodies of the Mediterranean, and from the uplifting afro-brazilian rhythms to the gypsy paths of jazz manouche, to confirm that different cultures can indeed co-exist.
