Culcha Candela

The spot for ‘local hero’ on this year’s bill in Germany and Luxembourg is reserved for Culcha Candela, a multicultural and cross-border musician collective that will be transforming Night of the Proms into a party. Johnny Strange, Don Cali, DJ Chino and Itchy, four vocalists who live in Berlin but each hail from a different continent, have produced earworms such as ‘Monsta’ and ‘Hamma’. Their unique mix of reggae, dancehall and hip hop with German lyrics and unbridled energy on stage make them stand out. Supported by our conductor Alexandra Arrieche as a congenial partner, Culcha Candela will drive the orchestra to new levels of excitement.
