Visitors to the Danish Pavillon at the World EXPO 2010 in Shanghai can look forward to experiencing new Danish music every Wednesday during the exhibition.
The Little Mermaid will be placed at the heart of the Danish Pavilion. With her, she will bring music from Denmark. Under the heading “Mermaid Music”, 26 talented Danish bands, choirs and orchestras will give performances during the 26 weeks of EXPO 2010, from the 1st of May until the end of October.
Every Wednesday visitors to EXPO can listen to the multitude of musicians and singers from Denmark who will be performing at the Danish Pavilion or at the nearby Europe Stage inside the EXPO area. The music, mostly modern rhythmic music, includes a great variety of genres – both jazz, blues, world, rock, pop and electro are represented. And the performers range from large choirs to one man shows. The many Danish musicians will not only be performing at EXPO, but they will use this as a starting point to play and sing at other locations in China.
Mermaid Music kicks off on 5 May with the Danish electro blues band Reptile and Retard, who has already rocked the underground music scene in China playing at – among other places – The Shelter in Shanghai.
