Pick Four: Mezerg
Dying to get out of the house and enjoy some live music? This 360° piano-techno concert could be the perfect solution. Innovative in the soul, Mezerg is a classical pianist who seeks another way to express the power of a melody. Fan of The Doors and his late genius keyboardist Ray Manzarek, passionate about Balkan music, he quickly understands that electronic music and its rhythms can be transcribed with acoustic instruments including the one he particularly liked: the piano. Mezerg is a showman who sweats on his keys and does not hesitate to share every moment with his audience. Classical and electronic music have found their fusion point in Mezerg’s melodies. His concert on a central stage promises to be a unique moment.
