What’s On: March 23rd-28th

by Andreina Guenni Bravo
What's On

The theme of this chilly third week in March’s What’s On is music, wine and more music. The choice of rythms means you can be transported to Brazil by way of bossanova, sample some ambient, electro dub or feel the warmth of the African sun.  Of course, if you take part in a shamanic jam session, you might find you are taken to another planet all together. If you’d rather keep your feet firmly planted on Luxembourgish soil, then a Luxembourgish wine will steer your palate in the right direction.  Spring has arrived, the great ball of fire in the sky has appeared but as quickly as it came, it retreated and let it’s frigid brother return, so don’t forget your heavy jacket and keep dancing to keep warm!
