Given that the global music industry is just opening up after a year or so due to the Covid-19 blockade, and the arrival of foreign bands is still logistically difficult, this summer it will be more focused on some of the most important and deserving names in regional music. a separate space for new and increasingly famous musicians.

Jazz, rap, rock, indie pop stretch through the songs of the Macedonian band Funk Shui, but they are all genre-homogeneous – the determinant they give is free flow. Certainly one complete picture and their base is represented by freedom; both lyrics and music. Their popularity is growing from year to year. They have been present on the stage for a decade, and they are currently preparing their third studio album, which was announced with singles. “Meteors“, “Wind” i “Not Time“. This is how they describe their work:

We are born again every day thanks to music and our relationship with it. The audience is formed along the way and groups itself in relation to what they hear, and Shui’s nature is to change shape from minute to minute. From a ten-year retrospective, we would take the renunciation of the sound standard, which is so necessary to keep us interested in what we do. We give preference to anyone from Shui who is in contact with the universe at that moment. Brave and crazy.

Judging by the novelty, there will be good opportunities for light dancing and that is why we suggest that you take your loved one to their performance and prepare your dancing shoes. When Svemirko appeared, there was a total confusion. For a while, everyone thought it was one performer – a super hero, but they switched. Space is made up of five super heroes. The band’s aesthetics and sound are pretty much like those from the 80s. Frontmen Marko Vukovic describes the albums as follows:

“Vanilla” was a good name for the first album because its content is quite creamy and unobtrusive, similar to the taste of vanilla. “Tunguzija”, the name of our second album, was interesting because of its exoticism and the enchantment of a place that does not exist. “Scalameria” is the perfect name because the album sounds quite colorful, diverse and is made up of many seemingly incompatible genres and influences. “
