Yasmo & die Klangkantine

Wiener Konzerthaus, 2017

When the classical concert is over and men in suits and women in evening dresses are about to leave, the real party at Wiener Konzerthaus is just about to start. One floor below Yasmin Hafedh & her big band present their new self-titled album “Yasmo & die Klangkantine” in a fulminant show where hip-hop, jazz and funk blend together as one. With her inimitable nonchalance and joviality Yasmo puts the spotlight on topics like equal rights of men and women (“Girls Wanna Have Fun”), strolls down a poetic-romantic memory lane (“Baby”) and invites us to indulge in sweet idleness (“Einer dieser Tage”). It’s one of those shows that make people think, smile and groove. And by the way, it was not just the audience of the classical music that appeared in dark suits and dresses. The aftershow-meeting of Yasmo and the Federal Chancellor Christian Kern proves that elegance and nonchalance go pretty well together.

Wiener Konzerthaus

Opened in 1913 Wiener Konzerthaus has always been among the city’s most progressive and diverse musical institutions. The classy building – located just a stone’s throw away from famous Ringstraße and Karlsplatz – houses four concert halls with capacities ranging from 400 to 1800 people. The programming includes classical music (anything from orchestra concerts to solo performances), Jazz and World music, but also the occasional pop show of both acclaimed and upcoming bands.
