Kebu

Friday 5th of August at 23.30

Kebu (alias Sebastian Teir) from Finland is a bright comet in the world of synthesizer music, whose latest album "Perplexagon" (Secret Entertainment 2016) debuted as number 6 on the Finnish album charts. Kebu is a true synthesizer wizard, whose polished Youtube videos have gathered over 5 million views and fans from all around the globe. Kebu's music is distinguished not only by a dedicated treatment of analog synthesis but also of an audience-captivating live performance. Kebu's live gigs are surrounded by warmth and joy, as well as a huge arsenal of analog synths, which brings to mind the best solo synthesizer artists from the 1970's and 1980's. Indeed, Swedish Gaffa.se said in a rave review of Kebu's gig that "Jarre's successor has arrived". Kebu carried out a successful tour in Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Estonia and Finland in 2016 and is currently preparing for a larger Europe-wide tour in 2017. Kebu was nominated both as Best artist of the year and for Best album of the year in the German Schallwelle Music Awards 2013.
