Description

Døre kl 19 / Koncert kl. 20

Feminin free folk fra Polen. De to nysgerrige grupper Sutari og Mehehe bygger bro mellem østeuropæisk folkemusik, skæve eksperimenter og magiske ritualer. OBS: bemærk venligst at tidsplanen er rykket, således at dørene åbner kl 19 og koncerten starter kl 20.

Tænker man på folkemusik, tænker man ofte på den omrejsende skjald, der vandrer fra sted til sted og spiller sine sange. Men for de tre kvinder i den polske gruppe Sutari fortjener dette billede en nuancering. Folkemusikkens traditioner er nemlig i høj grad også blevet båret videre fra generation til generation hos de kvinder, der sad derhjemme. Folkesangene har lullet børnene i søvn, men de har også skabt en rytme og en ramme for hverdagens arbejde - på marken og i køkkenet. 

Netop køkkenet og dets lyde har været et vigtigt udgangspunkt for Sutari. I deres musik blander de traditionelle østeuropæiske folkemusikinstrumenter med hverdagens objekter fra køkkenet - piskeris, rivejern og andet. Resultatet er et unikt lydbillede, en slags hjemlig og intim free folk, som trækker på både dybe folkemusikalske rødder og greb fra avantgarde-traditionen, og som på baggrund af dette skaber både humoristiske, poetiske og feministiske fortællinger - smukt forløst af trioens særegne vokalharmonier. 

Sutari har vakt opsigt rundt i verden med gribende koncerter på talrige festivaler - bl.a. på WOMEX. I 2017 begejstrede de på Fanø Free Folk Festival. En koncert, der også førte til et nyt samarbejde med den engelske gruppe Dead Rat Orchestra. Nu er de klar med det fremragende nye album “River Sisters”. Et album som med udgangspunkt i trioens feministiske tilgang udforsker relationen til naturen. Samtidig er det et album, som peger på folkemusikkens tradition som politisk musik. Albummet er nemlig en eksplicit øko-feministisk kritik af vores destruktive udbytning af naturen. Men også en hyldest til dem, der værner om den. 

Basia Songin fra Sutari er også aktuel i duoen Mehehe. Her arbejder hun sammen med Helena Matuszewska videre i det eksperimenterende og feministiske folk-spor, men med større fokus på ritualer, magi og heksekunst. Med vokal, shamanistiske trommer, traditionelle strygerinstrumenter og elektroniske loops skaber de et natteunivers, som fejrer tidligere tiders kloge koner og hekse - skikkelser, som ellers historisk er blevet kraftigt dæmoniserede. Deres debutalbum “Darkening” udkom sidste år, og vi ser frem til at præsentere deres magiske univers for første gang på dansk jord.

In English:

Two exciting Polish projects mixing folk music traditions, experimental sounds and feminist visions - for the first time in Copenhagen. 

The three vocalists, multi-instrumentalists and performers in Sutari have created their very own blend of folk music, mixing old rural traditions with everyday objects and a playful, experimental approach. Their striking use of kitchen objects such (meat cleavers, grinders, whisks etc.) connects their take on folk music with the home and everyday work, and thus displaying how folk music has been passed on by generations of women taking care of the home, and not only by the rambling troubadour. The exploration of a feminine world is also very much present on their new album, the brilliant “River Sisters”. Here they dive into an eco-feminist world and pays tribute to those people working to protect nature from exploitation. 

The group has performed in front of international audiences many times, including at Tallinn Music Week (2017), Rudolstadt Fest (2017), Folk Baltica Festival (2017) and more. In the autumn of 2015, the group presented their work at the largest international world music fair WOMEX 2015, and a few months later performed at the international Folk Alliance fair in Kansas City, USA. In Denmark the group did a great show at Fanø Free Folk Festival, but their visit at ALICE will be their first show in Copenhagen. 

Basia Songin from Sutari continues her work with experimental folk and visionary feminism in the duo Mehehe - together with Helena Matuszewska. Using acoustic folk instruments, spindles, leaves, whispers, screams and singing, they take listeners to a mysterious and dying world of rural magic or summer solstice spells. The figure of the wise woman, the witch and the shaman - figures largely demonized in a Christian culture - are dominant in their music celebrating nocturnal magic and rituals, as can be heard on their debut album “Darkening” .
