Rooted in the idiosyncratic Spinifex approach combining poly-rhythmic punk-rock, intricate composed structures and free jazz, Spinifex Sings will venture into the territories of song, lyrics, poetry and the primal scream, integrating both ancient and contemporary Tamil and Icelandic poetry.
Priya Purushothaman and Björk Nielsdottir are both among the most prodigious voices of their generation; Priya in the Hindustani Classical Music genre, and Björk in contemporary classical music and music theatre as well as in improvised music.
SPINIFEX SINGS: Priya Purushothaman, Björk Nielsdottir – vocals; Tobias Klein – alto saxophone;
Bart Maris – trumpet; John Dikeman – tenor saxophone; Jasper Stadhouders – guitar;
