Vetex is chosen amongst a long list of live-bands and acts, especially into the field of streettheatre, to perform live beyond a professional audience during the 27th "Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg" (Germany). This will happen on Wednesday-evening, 28th of January. For the band, this is a big opportunity to show themselves as great and vivid live-act and to get in contact with hundreds of bookings-agents, festivals and street-events, in Germany and far abroad.
The crazy brass band has turned 10 and that means it's party time! Some members of the Orchestre International du Vetex invites several musical friends: Jelena Milusic (vocals) and Ivan Susac (trumpet) provide the rakia from Bosnia-Herzegoniva and Valentina Etchart (vocals), Fernando Bas (latin percussion) and Juan Sans (accordeon) spice things up with the maté and asado from Argentina.
One moment you'll hear catchy dance tunes, the next you're treated to calmer, more emotionally-charged a-cappella songs.
What a great summertour Vetex is about to take off. First stop end of July is the great French international street theater festival in the beautiful setting of Chalon-sur-Saône. Vetex is chosen by a select jury to promote its street theater act during “Chalon dans la Rue” in front of thousands of concert promoters, festivals and street events from all over the world. Next halting place is our beloved Czech Republic, where Vetex is invited to play at the Puppetrock Festival in Plzen, European Cultural Capital in 2015. Spending some time in Czechia (Prague, Telc), Vetex is heading to the south
Sinds het ontstaan van Orchestre International du Vetex (begin 2004 in de loods van de Vetex-textielfabriek in Kortrijk) heeft de groep niet stilgezeten: van Sarajevo tot de Praagse metro, van de Olympische Winterspelen in Turijn tot prestigieuze jazzfestivals in Graz, Jelenia Gora, Nis, Santander en Montreal – de teller staat intussen op meer dan 500 concerten. Recent nog trokken ze doorheen Argentinië en Uruguay, in het spoor van niemand minder dan Manu Chao. Orchestre International du Vetex bestaat in 2014 tien jaar, en dat feest mag u niet missen.
