Celebrate his tenth birthday The Maneken plans on stage with a special program. It will include tracks from all five albums created by the author of the project Yevgeny Filatov for 10 years. During this time, with music that was unprecedented in Ukrainian music, the musician tried on his project masks in the style of pop, funk and indie rock. And thus the track behind the track created a project, according to which today one can study the history of a new wave of Ukrainian music.
Year after year The Maneken has transformed, and its author has always been open to various collaborations. On the account of Eugene, cooperation with Charlie Stadler, and with dozens of the best musicians of the CIS. Only thanks to SALE%’s longplay, (2016) the world heard the band’s collaborations with Sophie Villy, Essami, Brunettes Shoot Blondes and ONUKA.
In the course of its history, The Maneken group won three entries in the World Chart Express on MTV Europe, and also played concerts for fans of Europe and the USA.
For the upcoming concert, the ALight team, previously working on the live presentation of the album SALE%, is preparing a special visual show. It is also known that ONUKA will join the band’s performance. According to Filatov, his main goal is to create a chamber atmosphere at the concert, in which guests with musicians will play on equal footing.
“Each album of the band is a new style, a new sound. It all started with funk and acid jazz, then I’m Table and house. And now with the album Soulmate Sublime (2011), The Maneken becomes a band whose style was characterized as indie. In subsequent records, again, there was a tendency to change musical directions. It seems to me that our creativity has brought freedom, cosmopolitanism, and recognition of Ukraine on the musical map of the world to Ukrainian music, “said Yevgeny Filatov, sound producer and frontman of The Maneken.
