The world renowned multi-instrumentalist Cory Henry performed last night, 17 July in Gradac Park and delighted a large audience with a spectacular concert, powered by Mastercard.
In the almost two hour concert filled with superb music, Cory Henry performed his well-known hits, and he also presented the festival audience with songs from his newest album Operation Funk, released just before Henry’s arrival in Dubrovnik. With the rhythms of the colourful mixture of R&B, blues, jazz, funk and soul, it did not take long for the many people gathered in Gradac to get up and dance, even rising from their seats to get closer to the front of the stage, making the park into a bona fide dance floor, and the crowd even singing along with the performers. The concert which will certainly stay in everyone’s memory for a long time Cory Henry concluded with the words: “I believe that music is a universal language. Music unites us. This is musical medicine – makes me happy when I'm sad, makes me the happiest when I'm happy”. The excellent mood, tremendous energy and all around satisfaction was also confirmed by the fact that the musician stood casually with all the interested people for a long time after the concert ended, taking photos, signing autographs, as well as talking about his own impressions of last night's performance.
