Rolando to mentor and guest judge singer-songwriter competition ‘Dein Song’


I’m inspired by “Dein Song,” because I want to show how many faces music can have, and I want to support children and young people who have a great passion for music, just as I do.

Beginning February 25, Rolando Villazón will appear on the KIKA network’s successful program Dein Song a talent competition for young singer-songwriters – as a mentor to one of the young composers as well as a guest jury member later in the series. Selected from a pool of hundreds of applications, 16 candidates participate in a Composers Camp on the Spanish island of Ibiza, where they workshop their compositions and performances. Eight young musicians will advance to the final round, working closely with their mentors in the studio to prepare for the grand finale. Watch Rolando on Dein Song beginning February 25, Monday through Thursday at 19:25 CET on KIKA. You can catch him in the studio on March 19 recording his mentee’s song, and performing during the March 22 live grand final at 19:05 CET.
