    In the Streets

    Music Groups

    The Music Groups:
    Fatoumata Dembélé


    For more than 15 years, “In the Streets” has been an integral part of Lucerne’s Summer Festival. Which is why it would be impossible to go without this popular world music festival during this special year. Four international groups based in Switzerland will be expanding our musical horizons over a period of five days. The singer Fatoumata Dembélé inspires with songs from her West African homeland. The quartet Mirakolo from Biel moves with clock-like precision from funky jazz to wild Balkan grooves. And the trio JMO tells stories from Africa and Europe, using bass clarinet, kora, and exotic percussion instruments. Every evening, from Wednesday to Saturday, the artists will perform open-air concerts in Lucerne’s Old Town, followed by a late-night performance at the Sentitreff. The opening and closing events of "In the Streets” will take place on Wednesday and Sunday, respectively, on the Europaplatz, directly in front of the KKL Lucerne.
