Les Diaboliques

Les Diaboliques - Joëlle Léandre, Maggie Nicols, Irène Schweizer

19/11/2016 from 20:00 to 22:00

Blurring the lines between free impro and cabaret, with a wickedly satirical edge, three fiercely independent spirits draw on some five decades of creative energy at the heart of European free improvisation with a collective history that stretches back to the Spontaneous Music Ensemble of the 1960s, and an extraordinary catalogue of collaborations, from Derek Bailey to Han Bennink to Louis Moholo-Moholo to much, much more.

British vocalist Maggie Nicols, French bassist Joëlle Léandre and Swiss pianist Irène Schweizer formed Les Diaboliques in the early 90s - this is a rare opportunity to experience the artistry and intuitive chemistry of a seminal European ensemble.
