For more than ten years, the Europavox Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France, has been synonymous with musical diversity from Europe. Europavox was born in the heart of Auvergne, in 2006, with the desire to show European musical diversity. Since 2016, the project has also been expanding with offshoot festivals in six other European cities, supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe program. The WUK in Vienna is the Austrian project partner.
Europavox Project has been developing new international projects and events since 2016, including the Coaching Export Programme and europavox.com, dedicated to the promotion of European artists. In addition, Europavox Project brings together 7 European partners in 7 different countries: Le Botanique in Belgium, Fuzz Productions in Greece, Estragon in Italy, INmusic Festival in Croatia, Loftas Fest in Lithuania, WUK in Vienna and of course Europavox in France itself. These partners produce yearly Europavox festivals, with an exclusively European programming.

From Austria, Yasmo & die Klangkantine are part of the line-up. Yasmin Hafedh a.k.a. Yasmo has secured her place among the most interesting female MCs in the German-speaking region. One of the leading voices in poetry slams, she discovered her passion for this art form very early on; her interest in hip hop also led her to express herself through rap. In the past two years, she started performing with a group of eight jazz musicians and nicknamed the project “Yasmo & die Klangkantine”. In her raps, Yasmin Hafedh conveys her critical, yet clever takes on life, female perspectives, feminism and social developments.
