What happened at adidas Originals meets Santeria

On Saturday 23rd November adidas Originals and Santeria Toscana 31 confirmed, once again, to be two great protagonists of Milano Music Week, the unmissable event dedicated to music whose third edition has just ended.

With an event entirely dedicated to creative talents from different fields, they managed to create an evening show that entertained the many people present thanks to the work done in the early hours of the day, when exceptional teachers held two different workshops for 40 guys.
One dedicated to dance, curated by Like A Bomb, and one to visual art curated by the collective  VentiVenti.
During the three hours of class, 20 dancers and 20 visual art students, prepared the performances that accompanied all the artists involved by adidas Originals and Santeria to animate their incredible party, sold out after a few hours from the beginning.

First on stage, in the eager anticipation of only 200 lucky fans, was the rapper Marracash who, with the success of the last album Persona, reminded everyone to be the King of charts and records.
Accompanying him, for the first moments of his show, the Italian writer and founder of Esse Magazine, Antonio Dikele DiStefano, who had a chat with him about the nature of his new album, considered by the most successful.
And the confirmation came shortly after when Marra gave his fans 10 songs of the album, in a live became choral thanks to an audience that only after 3 weeks sang by heart every verse of the songs, showing the singer, and the few skeptics, how the awards already received and the sold-out around Italy are only the beginning of a great and expected return.

After the live performance of Marracash and the djset of Sabotage, the electronic sounds of the duo Concerto have been on stage at the Santeria theatre, always illuminated by the beautiful visuals of VentiVenti. Alessandro Donadei and Biancamaria Scoccia started the evening by flooding the track with a healthy desire for fun.

Immediately after it was the turn of the ethereal Birthh, born Alice Bisi, who with her beautiful voice and her debut album “Born in the woods” has captured the attention of audiences around the world, being among the best emerging exponents of alternative international pop.

The Piscologi, Drast and Lil Kaneki, then took care of the stage, the two young rappers born in 2001 made the whole Santeria audience sing with their pop/rap hits that talk about feelings, emotions and everything that adolescence is made of. 
A heartfelt and shared live show in which even the torches of the iPhones, the modern version of the most romantic lighters, illuminated the parterre.

Then the carefree dj set of Balera Favela, the club night of Ckrono, Go Dugong and PRP, which for the occasion brought with it Mara, a Swiss artist who loves French dancehall sounds and who perfectly matches the musical research, focused on the most varied dance music, of the collective.
It was during their djset, in fact, that the performance of the dancers of Like a Bomb came to life with the guys from the workshop who, unleashed, have done the choreography learned in the afternoon, animating the stage and the audience.

The event went on until late at night, with the alternation of great artists, emerging artists, and djset, giving everyone present hours and hours of music, art and fun.
A full day that you can relive with the black and white reportage of photographer Roberto Graziano Moro and with the video of Filippo Bano that you can find here.
