David Krakauer & Kathleen Tagg: Breath and Hammer Unplugged
This acoustic program lives at the intersection of world music and improvisation. BREATH & HAMMER UNPLUGGED is a unique opportunity to see the pair’s unorthodox playing styles unplugged at close quarters.
World music superstar David Krakauer & South African composer-pianist Kathleen Tagg have been working together for a decade. They share a constant quest to redefine the sounds and roles of their instruments, bringing together all aspects of their music making– influences range from interlocking drumming patterns to jazz to Romantic symphonic music to minimalism to klezmer. Their acrobatic and highly virtuosic arrangements of tunes by a host of performer-composers from around the globe are placed alongside original compositions and complete reimaginings of traditional tunes and standards close to their hearts.
