Conde Duque Cultural Center music program

Suena Conde Duque is part of the new stage of the Conde Duque Cultural Center, of approach and openness to citizens and creators, and its objectives are, on the one hand, to encourage the habit of enjoying live music on a regular basis, through through a program that includes weekly concerts and, on the other hand, facilitating the discovery of new artists of different styles and trends for the public of Madrid. This eclecticism starts from the idea that music, in its primary state, does not understand labels or styles, since these only exist, and persist, due to a human need for categorization. Through musical styles, we have the illusion of understanding the music we listen to, but music speaks, in essence, of emotion, and it is not as necessary to understand it as to feel it. In this way, we invite the public in Madrid to understand music as a continuum, in which musical labels take a back seat, and listening prevails.

Over three seasons, artists of all styles and trends have passed through Suena Conde Duque, such as Shabazz Palaces, Kalabrese, Daedelus, Tunng, Yamila & BFlecha, William Basinski, Laura Gibson, Suso Sáiz, Panda Bear, Niño de Elche, Oso Leone, Marc Ribot, Don The Tiger, The Comet is Coming, Dengue Dengue Dengue, El Remolón or Candeleros or Aitor Etxebarría.
