Dear friends, partners and ESNS delegates,

It is with regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our reception « |lx finest – Sounds from Luxembourg » (originally scheduled for tonight at 19:45 at the Social Hub) due to weather conditions. A red alert was declared by the Luxembourg National Crisis Unit which has disrupted our travel to Groningen.

Please note that the showcases of Luxembourgish artists CHAiLD (Tonight, 17 January, 20:50 at Simplon UP) and C’est Karma (Tomorrow, 18 January, 20:10 at Vera) will take place as planned.

We are very sorry that we will not be able to meet you tonight, but we hope to see you at another opportunity during the festival. We wish you a great day at ESNS.

Rising pop artist CHAILD from Luxembourg burst onto the music scene in 2019, rapidly becoming known for his soothing yet intense voice that drags you into his melancholic universe. CHAiLD identifies as a Gen Z artist, standing up for a youth generation seeking self-expression. His debut EP ‘Urgent Care’ came out in 2023 and he went from supporting major acts such as Nothing But Thieves, Dean Lewis and Mahmood to playing at international festivals.

“Emotional music in a danceable form has rarely sounded as haunting as it does with CHAiLD” – Diffus Magazine

Inspired by artists like Troye Sivan, Sam Smith, Julia Michaels or Mø, the artist comes up with his very own pleasing style of Pop, in which he integrates his own Italian roots” – Scoope Magazine

“It is the captivating lyrics paired with electrifying beats and CHAiLD’s soft voice that make his music so unique” – Luxemburger Wort

For C’est Karma, the Kultur | lx Global Project Grant 2024 laureate, music is a tool for change. From causing trouble with her punk band at the age of 14 to her bold 2022 EP ‘Amuse-Bouche’, Karma Catena’s passionate, activist heart always beats at the core of her music. She grew up in Luxembourg but relocated to Amsterdam where she ploughed doggedly into hyperpop, alt-pop and noise/industrial influences, resulting in songs that range from attacking inaction on the climate crisis and the disparity between the filthy rich and the less fortunate, to her love for women, the cinema and pasta. With “Hearts on Windows”, C’est Karma recently released the first single of her upcoming debut album.

 “Karma performs like a superstar … commanding the stage like a pro.” – The Line of Best Fit

“The controversial topics, combined with the … smoky, warm voice, don’t just let Karma’s tracks fizzle out after their runtime is over” –  Diffus Magazine

“Influenced by independent, experimental artists such as Björk, Kate Bush or Billie Eilish, her pop approach is minimalist-intimate and avant-garde at the same time » – WDR
