Acknowledged as one of the most important composers of her generation, Suzanne Vega was among the protagonists of the revitalization of folk music at the beginning of the ‘80s, when, accompanied exclusively by her guitar, performed what may be defined as contemporary folk or neo-folk. Suzanne Vega was defined as an extraordinary narrator, “who watches the world with a poetic eye.” Her songs focused on urban life, on ordinary people and on subjects of the real, immediate world. Ever since the launch of her first album in 1985, the artist performed sold-out shows in many of the world’s most appreciated locations.
Her music is easily recognizable, and is just as special, serious and creative, just like it was when her voice was broadcasted by the radio stations for the first time, over twenty years ago. “Luka,” the artist’s most famous hit, was a song that definitely entered the cultural dialect as the only hit ever written from the point of view of an abused little boy, while “Tom Diner” remains one of the most played and performed songs. Suzanne Vega was named “the mother of the mp3” after the German programmer Karlheinz Brandenburg, interested to develop the technology that would later become mp3, discovered that her voice was the perfect model for testing the purity of audio compression. Thus, Suzanne gained this surprising nickname.
Her latest recording “Beauty and Crime” was launched in 2007 and was highly appreciated by specialized critics, and is distributed in Romania by Universal Music. The tickets for the show performed by Suzanne Vega cost RON 75, 100, 150, 200 and 250 and may be found on www.ticketpoint.ro, www.eventim.ro, www.bilete.ro, www.blt.ro and in the Diverta, Germanos and Muzica stores, as well as at the Palace Hal box office.
