NIPÅ continues to present digital concerts on nipalive.ax, which reaches everyone in Corona times. Although we cannot meet physically, we want to spread the culture and music in every homes, and at the same time also support musicians and cultural practioners who are hit hard by the Corona-crises. The concept means that we at NIPÅ stands for technology, filming, livestreaming, communication and a fee for participating artists.
We do our best to get a variety of music in these nline-concerts. And this time it's time for a dance band Friday for two full hours! The live recording-session will be held at Parks Bar in Mariehamn. Music gives us joy and we at NIPÅ know that many people really appreciate dance band music and misses the dancing nights.
