A celebration of sound
Titled “A Celebration of Sound,” Le Guess Who? is considered one of the most progressive festivals in the world. Le Guess Who? is all about groundbreaking sounds that you won’t hear much, if at all, in other places, but that offer new perspectives on what is possible within music.
Le Guess Who? returns to Utrecht from November 9-12, 2023 for its sixteenth festival edition. For four days, Le Guess Who? will take over the city with shows by more than 150 artists performing in pop halls, theaters, churches, wharf cellars and clubs.
On Thursday, November 9, the program features. The Anonymous Project, a radically new format for artists to present their work and for listeners to discover it; Israeli singer, musician and producer Dudu Tassa & composer and guitarist Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead, The Smile) presenting their album Jarak Qaribak; Slauson Malone 1, exploring the intersections between pop music and performance art; Rəhman Məmmədli, “the man with singing fingers. SANAM, six Lebanese musicians who mix traditional Egyptian music and Arabic poetry with improvised rock, free jazz and noise; Berlin-based Peruvian musicians Ale Hop & Laura Robles present Agua Dulce, whose work is a radical deconstruction of the traditional rhythms of Peruvian art; and the acclaimed and pioneering psychedelic dub ensemble African Head Charge, founded by master percussionist Bonjo Iyabhinghi Noah and legendary producer Adrian Sherwood.
