Druga Godba at MENT
Friday, 10 June @ Channel Zero

In 2022, MENT is joining forces with the international festival Druga godba. For the past 39 years, Druga godba has been focused on the presentation of new music scenes and genres along with global traditional musics and their contemporary interpretations. The stage curated by Druga godba will host the Belgian fusion jazz outfit Echoes of Zoo, Slovenian bluesman Niko Novak, Japanese psych rock trio KUUNATIC and Irish master of psychedelic dance rhythms DJ Fitz.

As part of the collaboration with Druga godba, an interview with Bogdan Benigar, the head of the festival’s programme committee since 1993 and head of the jazz and world music programme at Cankarjev dom since 1999, will take place at the MENT conference.


After three years, the Druga godba returns to the traditional May date and one-week schedule with domestic and European premieres and the return of performers who have achieved international acclaim since their first performance in Ljubljana. This year’s lineup includes the British band Sons of Kemet, Spanish visionary Rodrigo Cuevas, Moroccan-French rock band Bab L’Bluz, Orquesta Akokán from Cuba and the otherworldly Moor Mother. Druga godba will take place at various locations in Ljubljana between 24 and 30 May 2022.
