LUNATRAKTORS ‘ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY’ -This Is Broken Folk
What’s left when everything is taken away from us – our tools, technology and libraries, even our homes, communities and citizenship? What’s left is what we have learned by heart and we can do with our bodies: our voices, hands and feet. Using techniques from body percussion, tap dance, overtone singing and physical theatre, performance duo Lunatraktors explore a set of British, Irish and Australian ballads to rediscover folk music as a queer space of personal and political transformation. Weaving the tragedy and comedy of these traditional tales with hypnotic acoustic percussion and harmonies, Lunatraktors create a genre-defying, “spellbinding” performance on the borders of music, theatre and live art.
Recorded in the brick viaduct arch of Ramsgate’s Arco Barco Studio, Lunatraktors nine track debut ‘This Is Broken Folk’ will be released on CD and vinyl. Come join us for the launch party.
