Garth Erasmus »Threnody for the KhoiSan«

In the organizer's words:

Concert feat. Ruth May, Stefan Schneider, Peter Thiessen and others.

Garth Erasmus is an artist and musician from Cape Town, South Africa. He is a founding member of the groundbreaking band Khoi Khonnexion, which, together with the band Kante, staged the music theater production "The House of Falling Bones" at the 2018 Summer Festival, which also resulted in an exhibition at the Kunsthaus Hamburg in 2022. Garth Erasmus identifies himself as Khoi and thus as a descendant of people from a pre-colonial past beyond a distinction based on ethnicity or race. He re-appropriates indigenous knowledge - he transforms the Khoisan bow instrument central to his work, as found in ethnological museums, into an electrified hypermodern tool.Threnody for the KhoiSan", the first solo album on Stefan Schneider's label TAL, is now being released: an impressive experimental work of sound art between avant-garde and free jazz, which translates indigenous knowledge into music and will be performed live at Kampnagel with Stefan Schneider Kante frontman Peter Thissen and artist Ruth May, among others.
