Os Barbapapas and LūX at House of Music / Saturday, 22.6.2024

Os Barbapapas make their Berlin debut this month with a special live concert at House of Music in Friedrichshain. They will be joined by the free improvisation of LūX.

São Paulo-based quartet Os Barbapapas trapeze the vast richness of Brazilian musical heritage and beyond. Naming themselves after a cult French cartoon family from the 70s, the collective’s members bring varied musical backgrounds to the forefront, some have travelled to Morocco to master Gnawa, others played in circuses, or were born in the heartland of samba. This multiplicity of influences informs the complex, yet breezy instrumentals heard on their latest album “Enigma” out on Staatsakt / Fun In The Church. The otherworldly record, as put by radioeins, is ‘soothing in these times of madness’.

Blending free improvisation and groove, LūX create sonic environments bursting with both feminist and political meditations. Their interplay between text fragments, analog, and synthetic instrumentalization creates a world that is at once bizarre, delicate, and warm. Sometimes puristic, sometimes alienated, LūX’s output boasts a vast and unexpected spectrum of sound.
