Am Freitag, den 20. April 2018 ab 20 Uhr präsentieren wir gemeinsam mit Fwd: like waves:
Plumes (Indieclassical/Paris) und The Moonband (Folk/München)!
PLUMES ••• www.plumesensemble.com
Montréal and Paris based group Plumes makes music described as “a glorious crossover of classical music grace and indie-pop catchiness” (Grayowl Point). Their debut self-titled album was hailed as a “a carefully constructed Baroque masterpiece, filled with orchestrated meditations on the peaks and valleys of love” (NYC Deli Mag) and their follow-up album, Folk Songs and Future Loves, interspersed original songs with Bartók and Luciano Berio folk songs. With comparisons to Kate Bush, St.Vincent, Dirty Projectors and Schubert, the group continues to explore the blending of pop and classical styles with instrumentation that includes harp, viola, clarinets, drums, electric guitar and strings. Their third album, recorded in a castle near Dresden, Germany will be released in autumn 2018.
The MOONBAND ••• www.themoonband.de
If you want to give a name to the genre, within which The Moonband move musically, then you’d probably call it »Indie-Folk«, »Neo-Folk« or »Alternative-Folk«. But how many attributes you would ever want to add to »Folk« – in the end it remains Folk: the fusion of telling stories and making music.
