Red Box at the Silk Road Festival
Red Box perform at Silk Road Festival 2013
Eclectic and tribal, it provided the band with two big worldwide hits in ‘Lean On Me (ahliayo)’ and ‘For America’. The record also contained ‘Chenko’, a chant that has become an institution in Eastern Europe, and these songs propelled Red Box around the world in their wake.
A little older, a little wiser…
In 2011, Red Box did a passable impersonation of Sleeping Beauty: awoken by the kiss of the songs they found they were writing, the band released ‘Plenty’, an album about family, love and friends – a world closer to home.
The singles ‘The Sign’ and ‘Hurricane’ provided them with two No.1s in Poland in 2011, a country in which they remain a serious cult.
The band played extensively in Europe in 2011-12 with live shows, radio concert broadcasts and unplugged sessions, including two critically acclaimed concerts at the ornate Bush Hall in London.
Red Box remain a band of close friends interested in new ideas, an extended creative circle who make music with warmth and a great deal of love.
