In mid April, Slovakia will experience an exciting international music party: between April 11 and 14, it will visit three Slovak cities, Bratislava (11), Košice (13), and Piešťany (14).

The first year of RnB & Hip Hop Night will feature Slovak musician Eugen Botoš with his Finally band on all the nights, but with different guests. They will support all performers as the leading band, organisers reported.

A special US guest will perform in all three concerts, too: r’n’b singer Angela Johnson who recorded several pieces on the album of Eugen Botoš, the Final Definition.

Moreover, in the Bratislava-based Majestic Music Club, Celeste Buckingham and Vladis will be guests, while in Košice’s GES Club, Vladis will be joined by Roma musician Alexander “Šani” Sási. Young Czech singer Christinne will perform in all concerts, too.

RnB & Hip Hop Night has the ambition to become a long-term concept, according to the organisers, bringing regular concerts to the Czech and Slovak Republic with musical guests from all over the world who can join forces – and genres – to present an interesting fusion.

Tickets for all three nights can be bought via the Ticketportal website.
