German romanticism in a 21st century lifestyle
Astonishing, surprising, controversial: in their “favourite project”, singer-songwriter Bobo (“ ...in white wooden houses”) and sound fiddler Sebastian Herzfeld give new life to well-known and unknown German folk songs and poems of the Romantic period. Bobo sings these songs about the great human emotions – love and pain, hope and fear, homesickness and longing – in such a way that you feel you had never listened to them properly before. Sebastian Herzfeld sits enthroned at his prepared piano and between an array of other unusual instruments. A unique mixture of folk, jazz, pop and experiment!
