aaamusic | On 04, Mar 2011
San Miguel Primavera Sound will host the second edition of the international meeting for professionals of the music sector PrimaveraPro, with many different activities all centred on the music industry.
The most important part of the showcases will take place on the festival site, for these showcases San Miguel Primavera Sound is selecting artists from different countries and regions to play on the adidas Originals promotional stage. In this first batch of confirmations, PrimaveraPro presents artists from Canada, Chile, Poland, Australia, Andalusia and The Canary Islands.
Under the umbrella of “Canadian Blast”, from Canada come the classicalism of Julia Kent, Jason Collett (member of Broken Social Scene with an extensive solo career) and No Joy, a promising noise pop band that has debuted this year on the American label Mexican Summer.
From Chile the well-known electro pop of Javiera Mena, the stark folk of Fernando Milagros and the duo Perrosky with their incredible mixture of primitive rock’n’roll, anti-folk and folklore from their country.
From Poland (with the motto “Don’t Panic, We Are From Poland”) come Woody Alien’s post hardcore, the energetic pop of The Car Is On Fire and from Kyst post rock with hints of folk.
Australia will be represented by Deep Sea Arcade, pop with a little psychedelia and melodic potential.
From within our frontiers, Andalusia introduces Tannhäusser, who swing from post rock to shoegaze and kraut, and Pájaro Jack and their folk pop sung in Spanish. From The Canary Islands come GAF, a project that embraces jazz, folk and rock with excellent results and the pop with British overtones from Zurych and The Birkins.
