Cucina Povera to represent Luxembourg at Primavera Sound 2022
After a three-year (physical) hiatus due to the global pandemic, Primavera Sound’s Barcelona version is set to take place live-and-in-person, from June 2-12. First starting in 2001, the festival has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious festivals in the world, let alone Spain and Barcelona. Throughout the event, the state of the music business is debated with the best-known experts in the field, showcasing a number of newcomer bands and also renowned artists from any style or genre, this year including the likes of Tame Impala, Gorillaz, The Strokes, Beck, Tyler The Creator, Little Simz, and hundreds more.
Having been described as one of the most striking new voices from the European underground music scene, Luxembourg’s very own audio-visual artist, Cucina Povera, is gearing up to make her Primavera debut. After studying music at the Conservatoire de Luxembourg, Cucina Povera spent a few years making her mark abroad in Glasgow, also performing at festivals like Rewire and Sonica, and has now returned to live in Luxembourg definitively since early 2020.
Named after the Italian culinary concept which emphasises the use of a few simple ingredients, Cucina Povera conjures gorgeous, otherworldly songs about nourishment and precarity from layered vocals and electronics. Live, her music unfolds beautifully, as beguiling melodies emerge from harmonic drones and looped phrases.
Cucina Povera will join the Primavera event of Barcelona-based DJ, label owner and producer, John Talabot, whose record label Hivern Discs has established itself as one of the most influential labels of the underground Barcelona electronic scene. Catch Cucina Povera Monday, June 6th at Laut as part of Primavera Sound!
