popNRW Showcase

Showcases /

Outstanding artists* from North Rhine-Westphalia will again enrich the popNRW showcase at the Reeperbahn Festival in 2020. This year, the entire event will take place exclusively on the net due to the pandemic, but the individual sessions are all premieres that were specially designed and produced for broadcasting during the Reeperbahn Festival.

Keshavara will stream fresh funk-savvy synthgrooves live from the Cologne Gottesweg Studios and give insights into the cabinet of ideas of his “Popcorn Mind”. Meanwhile, Acua have rented a room in an old boat shed, where they invite us to a relaxed psychedelic trip of the first order with their new album “Head Under Water”. The singer, producer and BLM-activist Mariama, who lives in Cologne and Paris, spoils us with her new album “Love Sweat And Tears”, which oscillates between R&B and folk and which she presents with her own all-female band.

popNRW is the music export office of Northrhine-Westfalia and supports local artists. It is part of the Landesmusikrat NRW and funded by the ministry of economics NRW.

This showcase will be continuously available as Video On Demand.
