Donny Benét - Live at Pohoda 2019

Donny Benét - Live at Pohoda 2019

Pohoda´s discovery, Donny Benét, performed alone during his debut in Slovakia. At his sold-out autumn tour around Slovakia, he was accompanied by his brother Dan and at this year´s Pohoda, the two were joined by the whole group -- The Donny Benét Show Band. The Australian disco king has instantly become a phenomenon and a sweetheart of Pohoda. It is not much of a surprise then that the organisers´ thank-you for the 23rd Pohoda took place during Donny´s performance. You can experience the top-notch atmosphere of this nonchalant artist´s show at our YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/2YFWLuJ6y4w → read more

Calypso Rose - Live at Pohoda 2019

The legend of the Caribbean music and the queen of the Calypso genre – Calypso Rose, also played at Pohoda 2019. Nina from Rádio_FM wrote the following about her performance at Pohoda: "At the age 79, she is still full of energy and doesn't lose her sense of humor, even though she has overcome cancer and heart attacks. Her concert at this year's Pohoda was one of the greatest experiences, despite the fact she had to take a longer break and had her band members step in for the time. It's very inspiring to see such genuine joy and enthusiasm for music on stage at such a high age." From today on, you can watch a selection of songs she played at Orange stage at Pohoda 2019 on our YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/WLNnAkmQZ0M → read more
