Micleusanu will play a special live performance within The Attic InContext, a music residency commissioned by the artistic residency program InContext, which will take place between June 21-25 in Slănic Moldova (Bacău country). InContext residency programme aims to inspire contemporary artists to develop their practice and create work in non-studio and non-gallery spaces, through engaging with new geographies, audiences and socio-economic contexts. For four days between June 21-24, Western, Indian and Romanian musicians will experience interculturality from a sonic perspective, as well as the metabolic interaction between man and nature. They will explore various approaches of Indian music, classic as well as contemporary, while experimenting with several instruments.
