Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

After completing an amazing summer tour, Šuma Čovjek (CH) has completed the debut album “No Man’s Land” and released the first two singles “Bouge ton cœur” and “Tortue et lièvre”. “No Man’s Land” is about home, identity, and the navigating between the cultural worlds and languages. The music of the ten chaps with Swiss, Bosnian and Algerian roots is a blend of Balkan, Polka, World, Brass and Jazz, and does not sound like a typical Balkan pop band at all. Melancholic Sevdah melodies are alternating with tight brass sections which again are highlighted by a groovy rhythm section.

With a smooth cross-over, the songs are sung alternating in Croatian, Arabic, English, French, Romani and Spanish. Does this sound like the Babylonian plethora of languages? Indeed. However, music that seduces to dance is a language that everyone understands. Šuma Čovjek delivers dreamy/playful songs from the heart and addressed to all people filled with joie de vivre, yet who do care about what is going on in the world around them.

The new album „No Man’s Land“ focuses mainly on the Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, French and Algerian languages. Even though both singers have been living in Switzerland for many years, these languages emphasise their cultural and musical roots. The songs from the “No Man’s Land” album are telling lyrical stories about current topics but also about common social issues. It’s a story about feeling at home in different places and about the internal conflict in the context of social and political challenges.
