„Blick in den Strom“
BOBO&Herzfeld and Zabélov
Record release concert
September 9, 2018 | 20:00
BOBO&Herzfeld present their new album: an atmospheric soundtrack of modern art song, experimental instrumentals and pop.
In the 90s, Bobo rose to fame in the German indie rock scene with her band Bobo in White Wooden Houses. After several albums, she attracted international attention through collaborations with the London Session Orchestra and with Rammstein, for whose “Engel” she sang the female part.
In recent years, Bobo has made a name for herself as a modern art song singer together with BOBO&Herzfeld. She sings old German folk songs and sets poems of German romanticism to classical music, written by film and theater composer Sebastian Herzfeld with unusual instruments such as a prepared piano, harmonium and various percussion instruments. The two musicians, who already played together in a jazz band in their student days and then lost sight of each other, build a bridge to their roots with this Romantic Roots project BOBO & Herzfeld
For their innovative mix of song, experimental music and German poetry, BOBO & Herzfeld are celebrated by audiences. In 2008 they received the world music award “RUTH” for their album “Songs of Love and Death”.
BOBO & Herzfeld play with the musician Yegor Zabélov, the most well known accordionist of the Belarusian off-music scene, whose virtuoso playing of hymnic melodies and driving rhythms often seduces the audience to standing ovations.
Blick in den Strom sets music to poems by Joseph von Eichendorff, Nikolaus Lenau, Rainer Maria Rilke, J. W. Goethe et al and finishes their romantic triology, that once started with their award winning Liedern von Liebe und Tod (Songs of Love and Death)
