With two successful events behind it this year, the beloved concept Ethereal returns to the magical Nagai Ibiza for the third episode of the party concept (special guest Alex Neri). The date is Sunday 13 May 2018 and the recipe is the same: extraordinary guest artists in musical, visual and kinaesthetic artistic realms combined with delicious contemporary Japanese fusion cuisine.
Musically, this week the event welcomes one of Italy’s finest exports Alex Neri.
Also taking care of tunes, Sunset Ashram resident DJ and singer Maricha will be on the decks with the unique sound of her “intelligent dance” that blends deep house, afro house electronica, chill-rave and downtempo, as well as her own improvised live vocals. Also on music duties, the multi-talented ATMA Drums, duo composed by Ivan Della Rosa and Illo Mur, will be putting on a live set bringing together strong danceable rhythms and organic sounds fusing the playful and the emotional.
Ethereal regular Edoardo Marvaso, I AM YOU (Tim Angrave b2b Marta Dlm), Angelica di Mayo and Le Mixet complete the line-up. The sound system is kindly provided by The Sound Ibiza (www.thesoundibiza.com).
On the visual level, art director and artist Rossano Poletti has curated another remarkable collection of skilled artists. For one, the young Lebanese-Italian artist Lami Daher provides a representation of the Arab Spring and surrounding violence, which he represents with intense iconographic representations that suggest angry screams on canvas. Also on display, the remarkable Argentinian artist, Ivanna Bini presents her acrylic plastic bas-relief, sculpting and photography.
The French-born Ibiza-based Marina Valerio adds her unique work, radiating colour and emotion with mainly acrylic paint, as well as fusing abstract art, collages, minerals, spray paint and more recently body painting techniques to transmit her messages. Finally, Russian artist Nadezhda Nefritova will be putting on a multimedia exhibition combining photography, body art, performance and graphic design.
