Moondog In Hawaii: Hobocombo, Hula Hut And The Seven Seas

ACUD CLUB 19h → Concert

June 26th marks the start of Backyard Summer, our official summer program. On selected Wednesdays and Sundays, we invite you to our backyard to cool down with music, food, drinks and friends. We start off presenting two bands from very different backgrounds: While Hobocombo follow the path of experimental legend Moondog, the Berlin Honolulu crossover Hula Hut and the Seven Seas explores the golden era of Hawaiian music.

ABOUT
 
HOBOCOMBO is Andrea Belfi at drums, percussion and voice, Rocco Marchi at guitar, synth and voice, Francesca Baccolini at double bass and voice.
 
Hobocombo began as a tribute to Moondog, playing and interpreting his music under a 21st century light which resulted in their debut album Now That It’s The Opposite, It’s Twice Upon A Time. Three years later, their second recorded voyage Moondog Mask, which once again features several compositions by our Viking Hero alongside a selection of Hobocombo’s own compositions and a „deviation“ by Robert Wyatt, ‚East Timor‘.
 
The resulting potlatch is a glorious kaleidoscopic trip around the notion of Moondog being a „fantasy writer“, running with the imaginative possibilities offered up by his music and philosophy that draws out lines of flight connecting with a strain of exotica that runs from Les Baxter, to Joe Meek, via the aforementioned Wyatt. // Website

A Berlin meets Honolulu crossover, HULA HUT AND THE SEVEN SEAS serve up a warm melange of foreign sounds, performing a repertoire of great Hawaiian music from the islands past "Golden Era". Sol Hoopii, George Ku, Sol K Bright, and Genoe Keawe are just some of the characters in the bizarre story of how a German band director influenced an entire nation's style of music. We honour that tradition while bonding with outsiders -- a natural response from initially, outsiders to the city.. Doubling as a sunshine-therapy-counsellor-group, Hula Hut and the Seven Seas bring the joy in sadness. Come celebrate with us! // Website
