Hip Hop @ Malmöfestivalen

August 27, 2010

I ended up at another free festival. This time, Malmöfestivalen in Malmö, in the south of Sweden.

Last night I got to enjoy some hip hop with local rapper Chords and then Grieves with Budo from the US. That’s what’s great about festivals, you get to listen to music you wouldn’t normally do.

I quite liked both. Chords with his reggae influenced sound had a good vibe but I only got to see about 15 minutes of the end of his gig.

Grieves was a pleasure to see for his energetic one-man show and his down-to-earth attitude. His friend Budo was very impressive, playing the trumpet, keyboards and guitar.

Here’s a little taste for you:
