Magical pop poetry

Support Mona Ida


It’s a kind of magic

You’re bound to get goose bumps as soon as JULIAN LE PLAY’s unmistakable voice soars. And there’s quite simply magic in the air. As a boy, the Viennese pop poet dreamed of a career in music and fortunately never gave up on this dream:

otherwise, we would never have found out why “Zugvögel” soar through the air without fear, how life plays out with and without “Mr Spielberg”, and when it feels like “Woodstock”. In short, you could become addicted to Julian le Play’s songs, which are as dreamy as they are encouraging.

And ‘addicted’ might just be the right word: his new album “Tabacco”, released in summer 2023, celebrates the most human of all addictions – longing and thus the desire to feel, experience and enjoy without restraint. An emotional melange that is purely magical. His performance on the Tanzcafé festival stage in Lech also promises to be enchanting. After all, his melodic flair is known to move mountains.

Support: MONA IDA

Since 2017, singer-songwriter MONA IDA has been shaping engaging sounds from the shores of Lake Constance in Bregenz into stories that sometimes come with a sense of purpose, and sometimes don’t. Since the summer of 2019, she’s not been working alone but happened to meet fellow musician Patrick Fahser on a tour of the Province.

In actual fact, the fork in the road at a Vorarlberg crossroads was actually reciprocal. In other words, it was love at first sound – and that feeling is still going strong.

Since then, perfectionism has combined with minimalism, while two guitars and two voices harmonize to tell stories with a little more meaning and sometimes without any particular meaning at all. However, the aesthetics of everyday life resonate with this poetic couple, resulting in enchanting songs that bring a blissful smile to their audience’s faces.
