Duo Roro / Arvind Ganga (drums & guitar)
Roro (rogier smal) is a drummer who experiments with free percussion sounds. Besides playing in duo’s with people like Anne LaBerge (flutes) and Peter Quistgard (a musical magician) he plays in improv group “DAGORA”, with random improv musicians and solo. Roro tries to find the energy of space and participants while remaining open to the environment and acoustics.
Arvind Ganga uses guitar, effects and objects to create a chaotically oscillating mesh, vibrating with high energy that oozes out in colliding rhythms, frantic melodies and distant slow grooves… all bathing in the rays of a deep red sun.
As a duo, they will explore the mix of freedom and more freedom, and then some more freedom. yes, freedom !
Flavien Gillié (field recordings)
