International avant-garde project “Radio Vostok-2
with the program: ” The escape of an African from Siberia”
Friday 19 April, 20:30
Six participants of this amazing recreate the tragic and strange story of African Mosley Motanga, who in the dashing 90s of the last century stole a locomotive (with him was his friend Roma) and drove it in the winter from Irkutsk to Novosibirsk to meet with his sister.
African ancestral songs, excerpts from Gypsy, French and Siberian folklore, free jazz themes, throat singing and video-a hallucination of the main character, against which there will be dancers and musicians.
This story was listened to and watched by avant-garde fans in Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Belgorod, St. Petersburg, Irkutsk, Voronezh, Dusseldorf, Stockholm, Rotterdam, Hamburg and Berlin. In each new city, new musicians participated in the project, and this story looked new.
Musicians: Igor Titenko (tenor saxophone, trumpet, flute, vocals), Stefanie Janssen(vocals), Hernán Samá (tenor saxophone), Björk Níelsdóttir (vocals , strings), Pietro Elia Barcellona (double bass), Izabella Pacewicz (performance).
