Sound Garden — Tonino Castiglione
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?
Tonino Castiglione, the Italian singer-songwriter who now lives in Basel, sings of courage and happiness, wisdom and trust, empathy and love in songs full of subtle humor, mischief, and wordplay. So passionate is his delivery, so virtuoso his guitar-playing, so original his anecdotes that Castiglione cannot help but captivate his audiences. His “Coraggio e Fortuna” program pits his own humanity against racism and the social exclusion to which it leads. Castiglione’s songs are stories taken straight from life that culminate in intensive, urgent soundscapes—which is what makes them so distinctive. Find your way to the park of the Fondation Beyeler to enjoy an evening with this vibrant musician.
This event is free.
