A crossroads of cultures and traditions in the past, today is a reality Tavagnasco known throughout Italy as a reference point for the rock, as well as a destination for a great opportunity - thanks to a selection open to all artists with talent and a good ear - for lesser-known groups who are given the opportunity to perform on a stage prestigious and high profile in the national music.
Twenty-five musical proposals for twenty-five years of the Tavagnasco Rock, with big names and a lot of young bands ready to conquer the stage!

Performs a repertoire consisting of some new songs of his own composition, and a large part of the standard of ska and rock steady, reworked in key orchestral. The artists are in particular the Skatalites and others, however, refer to sounds more typically jamaicane. The Beat Ska Orchestra was founded by Angelo Greek for seven years and was trombonist Persian Jones, one with Roy Paci, and has also collaborated to the realization of the so-called Jokes and Massacres of the Soledad Brothers. The Ska Beat and was born in 2010, but as a natural evolution of a previous training devoted to R & Blues: The No Way Out, which have played together for about fifteen years.

The result causes the mayor of Andria, Mr. Nicola Georgie, to meet with the group to personally congratulate the commitment put in place to serve the cultural growth of the region. But the songs until then products were not ready for any form of distribution, since the quality of the acquired deficitava, like any demo result of self. So, with the help of Grooving records Gianluca Porro, a professional web site in their city, the Drem's Project chose to launch the first official single: Indifference. Always self-produced, self-promoted always, but with a new texture and sound dignity. The video of the piece is shot by Claudio Bases, young director in that of Taranto and presented at the site of Bari Apulia Film Commission.
The project Soledad Brothers (name borrowed from the title of the book by George Jackson, Black Panther activist who was killed in 1971) was founded in 1989, after a brief period as the Soledad Brothers.

Saturday, May 3, at 21.30, for the last night of the festival Tavagnasco Rock perform Pastis, Boj, The BlueBeaters Bunna from Africa Unite feat.
Born from the ashes like a phoenix, the Pastis are the product of extravagant stories are not common. Their long and difficult training program was born from the union of the two creative cousins and Dario Giuliano, and passes through stages Italians and foreigners, real travel, travel mental, physical fights, bucolic idylls and smoky afternoon to arrive at the much desired current lineup. Five elements, hard-core but versatile: drums, bass, guitar, vocals and sax. Five different heads working together for just six months and bring the group a considerable variety of influences, so that the effect of the ladder Pastis has a decent place "pastis" of music: prog rock, jazz, funk, latin . Without worrying too much to belong to this or that other side, but always keeping the faith to the same principle: creative freedom and space to play creatively saturnine improvisation! They won the competition in Turin "Rainbow on the rock" in June 2012, as a reward obtaining the registration and promotion of their first EP. After a break dedicated to the intense activity as a composer, in 2013 the live activity continue playing in Turin and province and coming one step away from the final of Turin underground in arousing public interest and acclaim from critics.
Bojana Krunic, aka Boj, published in October 2013 his first EP titled "Burning of Joy" accompanied by video of "Misunderstanding", the first single artist. Six pieces, enriched by the incredible voice of singer Balkans, including nu-soul, funk and r'n'b, halfway between the sensuality of the grit of Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse. A family of musicians behind, love, war, and a desperate escape to Italy. Here, in brief, the story of the Boj, a girl with a scratchy voice, powerful, capable of transmitting from the first night all of his grit. Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Boj has struggled mightily against a culture that wants women mothers and wives, far away from the stage and its distractions, in order to pursue his passion: singing. Ran away from home to discover the world and be a part of music projects, from the Balkans to soul to rap, he finds himself, still a teenager, trapped by war and by the incessant bombing. A forced choice, that of escape, which leads her to abandon her loved ones the day before the closure of the borders. Here are three long days of walking, alone, through mountains and cemeteries, woods and countryside, from Hungary to Slovenia, until the arrival in Italy, hidden in the trunk of a car. Many years have passed since then, but Boj, who has not forgotten, he manages to convey in his music between funk, soul and r'n'b, the emotions of a lifetime. Recounting that is beautiful, simple and addictive managed to build, despite the difficult choices that have always accompanied. "Burning of Joy" was recorded, produced and arranged by Simone Momo Riva (already working with Naif Herin, Hay ...) TdE at the Studio of Saint-Christophe (Aosta).
The Bluebeaters, the band was born in 1994 who has to his credit 19 years of touring and five albums together with Giuliano Palma, reborn after 9 months of silence with the original lineup, a new group that will accompany new singers, both internal and external to the group: Pat Cosmo (Casino Royale, Neff, BB), Mr T Bone (Young Lions, BB) and Maya "Lady Soul" (Soulful Orchestra). But not only the super special guest for a few nights will be Bunna (Africa Unite, BB). The tour will begin Friday, December 20th at Live Club Trezzo D'Adda and will take the band around Italy until January 2014; on certain dates, there may be other guests, friends with whom I have shared stage and backstage in recent years. The new repertoire fished songs that are part of the background of the individual musicians (ska and reggae 60s / 70s but also remakes of songs more or less well-known part of the soul and rhythm & blues, as the tradition of the band), and in general the popular music of the last fifty years. The only concession to life last few episodes of The album, the first album recorded by the band in 1999 with Giuliano Palma. The reason for this "new life" is primarily to restore and maintain a sound totally original, built over the years: a unique value and timeless, the derivation of the original sound, the Blue Beat - a derivation of the emotional Jamaican ska 60 years - that has rocked and brought up before the rocksteady and reggae.
