Tours de France

La Gapette (FR), Antonia Vai (S/HU), Csíbor

True Paris-carnival ambient will smash the space of the Ship on this night just like if we were on river Seine. A hilarious French band will set great music fire, a great Hungarian band will give extra power and a Swedish-Hungarian girl will give beauty with her songs. 

La Gapette (FR)

5 years, 500 gigs, 5 musicians, this is La Gâpette band from France. A band for which no cafe, bar or pub is a strange territory to perform, though they have stunned masses on festivals too. For their spontaineous energy and entertaining attitude don't leave calm any audience, and they do love every audience.  Their wird combination of accordion, guitar, double bass and vocals plaeses eveyone.  Discover fun and joy in their interpretation!

Antonia Vai (S/HU)

Poetic soul. Dramatic folk. Melodic bitch slaps.

Antonia Vai is a Swedish/Hungarian singer-songwriter and musician. Born and raised in Stockholm, she moved to Budapest in 2013, to try her luck on the Hungarian music scene.

Antonia has been playing instruments and writing songs since her early childhood. As a teenager, she started recording and producing her songs alone in her bedroom. After living a year in London, and moving around in Europe, she finally released two self-produced albums at the same time, “Lovers and Prophets“ and  “Dirt From When The Earth Was Flat“, in September 2012.

After moving to Budapest in 2013, Antonia recorded the album “Stories After Bedtime” in the Szimpla ruinpub, together with Swedish guitarist/producer Felix Gröndahl, percussionist Adam Gilinger, trumpet player Krisztian Muhari and bass player Adam Zdosek. The first single from the album was “The Pirate’s Waltz” and the full album was released in September 2014, on A38, Budapest.

This was the start of ‘Antonia Vai Band’, and since then they have attracted a big audience on the underground music scene in Hungary. The band toured the country with alternative rock band Quimby, played at MR2 Akusztik, did a song with Sena (Irie Maffia) for Balcony TV and had a sold-out show at MÜPA, Palace of Arts, in June 2015.

The current band has gone from acoustic into a full-on setting. Electric guitars, drumset, keyboard, trumpet. Band consists of Kurgyis Attila (guitar), Adam Zdosek (bass), Miklos Kovacs (drums), Krisztian Muhari (trumpet). In 2015 they released “Remember How” together with Saiid from Akkezdet Phiai.

In February 2016 they released the EP, ‘Tightrope’.
