Chic featuring Nile Rodgers

The mark that American guitarist and producer Nile Rodgers has made on the music of the past decades is invaluable. He has worked with major artists like Madonna, Duran Duran and Diana Ross and only last year his characteristic guitar sound made Get Lucky by French dance act Daft Punk the greatest hit of 2013. The single even won three Grammy Awards, and since its success Nile Rodgers’ disco group, CHIC, is in the spotlight again. Hits like Le Freak and Good Times characterize the sound of the seventies; the era of disco. Of the original lineup Tony Thompson and Bernard Edwards have passed away. But Rodgers carries on, fed by the enthusiasm of fans all over the world: since 2003 he has been traveling the globe performing historic songs during his joyful and exuberant shows.
