Sound Garden — Anoushka Gwen Solo
This summer, the pavilion of the Fondation Beyeler park will once again resonate to the pulsating beats and melodies of our “Sound Garden.” 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 jazz and canzoni to disco and Hawaiian melodies. What better way 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 park?
On this evening, guests to the park can enjoy listening to local young talent, Anouchka Gwen, who describes her own personal blend of R 'n' B, pop, and neo-soul as melancholy, romantic, and mildly critical. The imaginary worlds that she creates in her intimate performances are as much a place to dream, to live, and to breathe freely as they are safe havens from the daily grind. Her latest album, “Utopia,” grapples with acceptance, representation, awareness, and feelings of vulnerability—all of them themes that for her as a young BIPOC artist are very much a part of everyday life. But music is more than just a way of processing reality for this young Basel artist. It is also about self-expression and self-discovery.
This event is free.
