“Unfortunately, our critics remained invisible”

After Burn Reggae Scandal, “Lowworm” Singer Defends Himself

“As a Swiss, you should only make folk music”

A concert by the Bernese dialect band “Lawworm” protested by the audience at a concert by the Bernese dialect band “Lawworm” due to “cultural appropriation”, so the concert had to be stopped. Now the band concerned speaks – and responds to the allegations.

Scandal due to reggae performance in Bern: The dialect band “Lawworm” had to cancel their concert last Monday at Bern’s scene pub Brasserie Lorraine after visitors complained to the operators. « During the concert, several people freely approached us and expressed their displeasure over the situation. It was about the theme of ‘cultural appropriation,’ writes the restaurant on Facebook. ‘Cultural appropriation’ refers to the adoption of aspects and components of one culture into another.

Visitors will be intrigued by the fact that the members of the white Swiss band played reggae music, a style of music originating from Jamaica, and from Senegal and The Gambia dressed in blonde dreadlocks and colorful clothes. The brasserie would like to apologize to all visitors “where the concert caused bad feelings,” the operators continued to write. A discussion event on this topic is now planned to be held in the restaurant in mid-August. However, when asked by Blick, Brasserie Lorraine declined to comment.
