Today we are very happy to announce that EDSUN will be one of our performers at our TEDx event.
EDSUN is a RnB artist from Luxembourg who combines music and performance. He released his first EP called N.O. in 2015 and his way very quickly into the Luxembourgish music scene. He was in Luxembourg to merge music with blended contemporary dance. Having performed in Luxembourg’s biggest venues and museums, EDSUN is crossing borders geographically and artistically.
Son of Cape Verdean immigrants, the oftentimes barefoot singer takes a stand in his performances and his music for the outcasts and the marginalized. Being an ally to women, the LGBTQIA community and to the black community, he is using his voice and platform to liberate people and himself.
In 2018 he won the LUXEMBOURG MUSIC AWARD for Artist of the Year, and Best Video for his song ‘Lisa’ which is the first song released from his second EP called ‘You Are Not Just One Thing’. This EP allowed him to tour at the end of 2018 in Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany and Norway.
In 2019 he performed twice at the renowned Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona which secured him a spot at the BIME Festival in Bilbao (Spain) in October 2019. He opened up for Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) at Luxexpo (LUX). EDSUN performed and composed ‘FOGO’ a piece inspired by Luxembourgish artist Arthur Unger at the prestigious art exhibition ‘Fondation Valentiny’ in Remerschen (LUX).
His latest song ‘Essential’ has been streaming on all the platforms since this September and the video to the song will be out very soon as well.
