Hymn-like reviews can be read about the German-US singer, songwriter and composer Rebekka Salomea. We clear our throats briefly and tune in: R’n’B from Germany, give it to us, Rebekka! Her agile alto voice raps and sings, soults and jazzt, dares and electr(on)ises. She herself calls her music “contemporary multi-genre”. Sounds a lot, but doesn’t sound exhausting, even if it takes real listening to fully appreciate the depth of her art. Her voice, which is capable of modulation, is always worth a try. Yet every performance is different, because improvising within the songs is as much a part of her concerts as a unique stage presence. And thus feature ring stage free!
Exhibition of the illustrator Jill Senft
For the current brochure in the Feature Ring series, Jill Senft illustrated all the artists who will be on stage in 2023 with Demian Kappenstein, Eren Solak and Felix-Otto Jacobi will be on stage at the Festspielhaus.

In the meantime, her pink wobbly people are almost cult for Instagram almost a cult.
