Cro I Glen Hansard & TBA
Place informationZermatt Unplugged
With the acoustic set by rapper Cro, Zermatt Unplugged awaits an event that raises great expectations and much anticipation. Cro is the musician with the panda mask, an artistic universe that emerged ten years ago, paving the way for a whole new style. The music was light and playful: Cro moved with virtuosity in rap and pop and not only made music – he designed his art work as well. With the albums Raop and Melody, he broke all records. As the youngest artist in MTV Unplugged’s Hall of Fame, Cro gave a taste of his abilities as a musician who also mastered the acoustic set. We look forward to songs like Easy, Whatever, Bye Bye, Once Around the World and Infinity from Cros’s latest work tru.
Irish musician Glen Hansard has experimented with folk music like no other. As a teenager, he made the rounds through Dublin with self-composed songs and founded the legendary band The Frames. He played the role of his life as Outspan Foster in “The Commitments”. Music and film have had a firm hold on him since. In 2008 he composed the Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly with Markéta Irglóva for the independent production “Once”. The actual transformation process of this exceptional artist is fulfilled through four solo albums. With the recently released album, This Wild Willing, Glen Hansard has once again taken his songwriting to a whole new level, melding improvisation and inspiration from other musicians to the realm of his creative process.
