Hip Hop has now overtaken all other genres in the pop firmament. Yet this genre also has different facets. We bring acclaimed and particularly appealing wordsmiths to the BALOISE SESSION stage: superstars who rap in dialect and high German. Lo & Leduc from Bern are purveyors of intelligent, astute and absurd texts. Their beats are wittily peppered with funk and jazz. Clueso, from Erfurt in Germany, delivers a fascinating mix of depth, sensuality and grand emotions. The grooves underlying his texts contain lots of clever quotes and stylistic borrowings from pop history.
