Fondation Beyeler

Wednesday, 24 July

During the warm summer months, the rhythms and sounds of the Sound Garden will once again resound around the pavilion in the park of the Fondation Beyeler. Every Wednesday, visitors savoring the balmy evening air over a cool drink will get to enjoy the music of a line-up both regional and national, ranging from classical music to reggae and electropop. What better way could there be to while away those precious mid-week hours than with the varied program of this year’s “Sound Garden” in the relaxed atmosphere of the museum’s own park? Sound Garden will present great music every Wednesday from June 19 to September 25 (except August 14 and 21).
Pierre Nanon, alias Cali P, is one of the most successful reggae musicians in Switzerland. His multicultural heritage is clearly felt in his music. Born in the town of Schlieren, he carries within him the roots of both his Rastafarian father from French-Caribbean Guadeloupe and his Swiss mother. At an early age, Nanon joined his father's band and came into contact with Jamaican dance hall for the first time through the Gideon Soldiers Sound System. Later, musical icons such as Bob Marley and his son Ziggy shaped Nanon's musical and personal development. It is therefore not surprising that today, as Cali P, Nanon carries the message of reggae and Rastafari to different parts of the world with his music. For a Sound Garden evening, Cali P brings his warm songs to the park of the Fondation Beyeler.
This event is free and no advanced booking is required.
