Acclaimed American guitarists Kaki King and Marc Ribot in an exclusive double-bill performance this August.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘a genre unto herself,’ Kaki King is a true iconoclast. The Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist has released eight extraordinary and distinctive albums and her latest work The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body is Kaki at her visionary best: redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination and boundless humanity. This ground breaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as a blank canvas, where luminous visions are cast onto her signature Ovation Adamas guitar which has been customised specifically for this production.
Marc Ribot, described by The New York Times as ‘a deceptively articulate artist who uses inarticulateness as an expressive device,’ has released over 20 albums under his own name over a 30-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez. He joins Kaki King playing favourites from his vast back catalogue.
Don’t miss two of the world’s most celebrated guitarists as they play an intimate double-bill concert in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall.
