Sun, 04. Nov 2012, 8 PM | Black Rock - White Soul
In honour of the 35th anniversary of his solo debut, Vincent Fournier has brought his alter ego Alice Cooper back to life. He shows the world that 70s shock rock is still the best way to put today’s worst nightmares to music. But maybe things aren’t really that bad? Joyful Stefanie Heinzmann from Valais, a great horror film fan, gives powerful and convincing proof of her love of the here and now with her soulful pop. Generation gap? No way. Both artists carefully observe our daily lives, albeit differently: one in a costume, the other in glasses.

Sun, 08. Nov 2009, 8 PM | Tiger Power
He has been called the «Welsh Tiger», but he is also known as the white soul man par excellence: Tom Jones. His love for African-American music links him to the California funk band Tower of Power – and to the young Stefanie Heinzmann from Valais. Major emotions and razor-sharp rhythms are guaranteed. In the beat age, Tom Jones was Great Britain’s first «Soulman» – an explosive performer, who was compared to Wilson Pickett or Solomon Burke. Ten years later, it was the Tower of Power, which was one of the first white bands to produce credible, first class funk. And now, it is Swiss singer Stefanie Heinzmann who is inspired by the spirit of soul.
