Theatre musicians, composers and the founders of the bohemian 32 piece gypsy orchestra The People’s String Foundation Ben Sutcliffe and Zaid Al-Rikabi perform here with the virtual addition of their orchestra projected on a huge screen behind them.
“The People’s String Foundation is one of the great wonders of the West. I first heard the music of Ben and Zaid in Kneehigh’s production of FUP in 2017: stonking, earthy, organic, delicate, and barn-storming. This led me to their album “The Lost Dreams Of Gilgamesh” which is a joyous and many-splendoured thing. The upcoming “Puppetree” tour by The People’s String Foundation is an impassioned and bold project to bring a larger than life production to poor and/or remote venues. This work, of such big heartedness and brilliance, is desperately needed!” Conductor and Composer – Charles Hazlewood.
“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. The entire piece is fresh and youthfully enthusiastic with clear production values on a classical scale. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year’s Mercury prize.” Ralph McTell.
Moving with ease between funk, punk, rock, latin grooves, acid jazz and unforgettable hook lines Animal I plays off the wall original compositions to get your feet moving and brain in overdrive. Off beat rhythms with sycopated bass and guitar lines woven with flowing saxophone and tongue in cheek vocals make Aminal I a truly unique experience. Formed as a collective during community camps in Tehidy Woods, West Cornwall the band has been constantly innovating for nearly ten years.
