After Toronto, Cologne, Sidney, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro, Rex Band will also make us dance at World Youth Day in Krakow


“Rise up and dance”

Rexband was the first band from India to be invited to perform at World Youth Day, at the Toronto meeting in 2002. From then on, they have often been invited back to WYD: Cologne in 2005, Sydney in 2008 and Madrid in 2011.

At the most recent World Youth Day, in Rio de Janeiro in 2013, Rexband had the honor of performing a full concert the evening before the Holy Mass celebrated by Pope Francis.

This year in Krakow the band will perform at the Halleluya Festival, the largest music festival in the Catholic world. The event is being organized by Shalom Community of Brazil specifically for World Youth Day.

Rexband was formed when a number of young people met through the Jesus Youth movement and saw their lives transformed. They wondered how they could use the musical talent God had given them to bring more young people to Christ.

The band is made up of more than 25 artists who have different talents in music. Their style is a fusion of ethnic and contemporary music.

They have released ten albums in different languages over the past decade.

To follow them on Facebook, visit their page: Rexband

And follow Cecilia each day to discover new artists and new music from around the world!
