Two weeks ago, a nine – year – old named John Anthony, broke into the main stage of Sunset Music Festival (SMF) in Tampa, Florida. According to news from the CBS, this young musician who also plays the piano, he has spent three years playing and made her debut at the festival Disco Donnie Presents .
Apparently, fashion and big news these days are the DJ for the boom that has taken electronic music in recent years and its positioning in both the music industry and the world of finance children. It may seem odd but this phenomenon started a few years ago and every day causes more morbidity / feeling in society.
How was the presentation of John Anthony? In the following video you can see that although it was during the first moments of the festival, the public is already delivered to the fullest.
But that case is not unique. Or perhaps nobody remembers what Aiden and Jude? A year ago they released their first single “Tonight” in collaboration Nafsica, which has more negative comments and criticisms acceptance in the electronic scene.
And yes, in Mexico also have to Miguel Dix who rose to fame, if we can call, at 10 years in 2012. Originally from Melbourne DJ hire, Miguel Luis Hernandez and shared the stage with David Guetta and Martin Garrix who they sported surprised by age child on stage. Also in 2013 and played at the Azteca Stadium in Event 40.
And such EMPO Kids? A matinee event for children under 15 years for two hours listened to the beats of GuztavoMX and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. I heard jeers by the older more no negative comments or complaints from the audience. Is this the future of children’s concerts?
A similar case last SonarKids , the proposed leisure international festival of advanced music that is held over three days in June in Barcelona, Spain. Infant proposal came a 2009 festival under the same standards and philosophy of the festival having as pillars music and technology.
The inclusion of parents in a learning atmosphere is essential for the development of the festival which proposes the interest of children to discover and learn through music original and creative way. The proposal is interesting, as it seeks to reconcile the life of the father in concerts with education for their children.
The proposal I find funny but interesting for the pursuit of learning and not the sleaze / feeling it generates in society. It will be a matter of seeing the phenomenon that apparently is becoming more than a fad and check the impact it generates.
