Rapper M¥SS KETA visits the Fléda club. It will be her first ever concert in the Czech Republic

The Italian rapper and performer M¥SS KETA, who has been hiding her face and identity throughout her career, will perform in Brno. She will present her show for her new album Club Topperia at the Fléda club for the Czech premiere. The rapper has been hiding her face and identity her whole career.

M¥SS KETA is releasing a new album after two years. On Club Topperia, she invites listeners to a dreamy nightclub full of freedom. The record brings a critique of how dating is disappearing from the club environment at the expense of empty fun. “When you meet people at night, you talk to them. That’s what opens your mind more than anything else you do in a club. It’s about the people you meet when you come out of your shell,” explains M¥SS KETA to i-D magazine. The album’s songs feature the rapper’s role models, such as Silvia Calderoni and Francesca Cipriani, who have influenced her artistic identity. M¥SS KETA will perform on 12 November 2022 at 20:00 in the Brno club Fléda.

M¥SS KETA’s music represents a diverse mix of club genres. At the beginning of her career, she claimed attention by fusing electro, house, and R&B. Later, however, her sound opened up to pop and disco rhythms. The musician is intrinsically linked to Milan’s fashion scene and the local LGBTQ+ community. The singer is also known for her hypersexualized stylings, and her performances also include distinctive dance performances. An unmistakable element of M¥SS KETY’s artistic presentation is the face-obscuring veil, which the singer used long before the start of the queer pandemic.

M¥SS KETA has hidden her civilian identity throughout her career. She presents only her own fictional biography as the so-called Myssketian mythology. According to this, M¥SS KETA was born in 2013 as “a sensual Venus born in the shell of the Milanese club scene.” The truth is that the musician rose to fame that very year with the song “Milano, Sushi & Coca”, which ironically celebrates the local nightlife. After several successful club singles, the local personality has gradually become an international star. The debut album “L’angelo Dall’occhiale Da Sera” (2016) was released by M¥SS KETA while still under the banner of the independent collective Motel Forlanini. Further albums “UNA VITA IN CAPSLOCK” (2018), “PAPRIKA” (2019) and the dystopian EP "IL CIELO NON È UN LIMITE" (2020) have already been released under Universal. The major label has opened the performer’s doors to well-known addresses such as Badaboum in Paris, Berghain in Berlin and the Melt festival.

Like other music festivals, the 29th annual Concentus Moraviae International Music Festival has not only had to reflect the fact that it is the Year of Czech Music, but also the unique 200th anniversary of the birth of Bedřich Smetana, the founder of modern Czech music. The dramaturgy of this year’s festival, which has just launched, is in the spirit of "Metamorphoses: Czech Smetana!". The first festival concert, which took place on 31 May at the Kyjov Municipal Cultural Centre, gave a hint of the direction the rest of the festival's dramaturgy will take. The organisers of the show decided to explore Smetana's work from a fresh angle and to work not only with the music, but also with the audience’s expectations. The opening evening saw a performance of Smetana's famous String Quartet No. 1 in E minor From My Life, but in an arrangement for a symphony orchestra penned by conductor and pianist George Szell. Smetana's work was complemented by the world première of the Concerto for Flute and Orchestra "Sadunkertoja" by Finnish composer, conductor and artist in residence at the 29th annual festival, Olli Mustonen, commissioned especially for the festival. Mustonen also conducted the Prague Philharmonia's performance of the two works. Danish flautist Janne Thomsen performed as soloist.  more

As part of Ensemble Opera Diversa's Musical Inventory series of concerts, which began back in 2017, the ensemble aims to present (re)discovered works and composers that we rarely hear on stage. However, this dramaturgical line also offers the space and initiative to create some completely new works performed in world premières. This time, the chamber concert held on Wednesday, 29 May 2024 in the auditorium of the Rector's Office of the Brno University of Technology (BUT) was directed by the Diversa QuartetBarbara Tolarová (1st violin), Jan Bělohlávek (2nd violin), David Křivský (viola), Iva Wiesnerová (cello), OK Percussion Duo (Martin OpršálMartin Kneibl), soloists Aneta Podracká Bendová (soprano) and pianist Tereza Plešáková. The theme was a nod to the Prague composition school from a pedagogical and artistic perspective.  more

The concert with the subtitle Haydn and Shostakovich in G Minor closed the Philharmonia at Home subscription series on Thursday 16 May at the Besední dům. It was also the last concert of the 2023/24 season (not counting Friday's reprise), with the Brno Philharmonic led by its chief conductor Dennis Russell Davies. In the second half of the evening the orchestra was accompanied by singers Jana Šrejma Kačírková (soprano) and Jiří Služenko (bass). As the title of the concert implies, the dramaturgy juxtaposed works by Joseph Haydn and Dimitri Shostakovich, which are almost exclusively linked only by the key in which they were written.  more

Connection, unity, contemplation - these words can be used to describe the musical evening of Schola Gregoriana Pragensis under the direction of David Eben and organist Tomáš Thon, which took place yesterday as part of the Easter Festival of Sacred Music at the church of St. Thomas. Not only the singing of a Gregorian chant, but also the works of composer Petr Eben (1929-2007) enlivened the church space with sound and colour for an hour.  more

With a concert called Ensemble Inégal: Yesterday at the church of St. John, Zelenka opened the 31st edition of the Easter Festival of Sacred Music, this time with the suffix Terroir. This slightly mysterious word, which is popularly used in connection with wine, comes from the Latin word for land or soil, and carries the sum of all the influences, especially the natural conditions of a particular location and on the plants grown there. This term is thus metonymically transferred to the programme of this year's VFDH, as it consists exclusively of works by Czech authors, thus complementing the ongoing Year of Czech Musicmore
