Pop, Rock, World & folk
Werkstatt Kultur-Bar, Chur
Calanda Spring Festival with Šuma Čovjek live at Werkstatt Chur.
Šuma Čovjek dispel the clichés of classic Balkan pop. The Swiss with a migration background sing in French, Croatian and Arabic. The languages flow into each other so harmoniously that you have the feeling you understand them all. This is certainly not least due to the lovingly arranged songs: melancholy ballads, rhythmic pop-rock pieces and rap tracks, peppered with furious brass sections.
Šuma Čovjek released her second studio album "Fata Morgana" in 2022. The album was created in a time of great uncertainty. Where the journey with these songs would go, when concerts or a tour, would be possible, was uncertain. Through this fog they drew themselves a mirage of a new beginning in the distance. A mirage as a goal, which gave hope, gave perspective, motivated to go the way; always with the knowledge that the way was the goal and that we would go this together. So it says in the title song Fata Morgana: "On a parfois besoin au bout de la route d'une Fata Morgana".
Live they inspired with shows at the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Open Air St. Gallen, the Zermatt Unplugged, the Moon&Stars Locarno, at the Rock Oz'Arene, at the Heitere Openair or at the Winterthurer Musikfestwochen and many more.
The pictures for the single and album covers were taken by the multiple award-winning Swiss photographer Dominic Nahr. The videos are again created by the Serbian film producers Jelena Gavrilović and Marko Milovanović.
