Speaking Tubes

(FRA/GER)

The rare combination of vocals, violin and double bass marks this trio as a unique entity. The band takes on revolutionary songs from different countries and interprets them in delicate interaction in new ways from night to night, passionately but with a twinkle in their eyes. The ever-changing end result is dramatic, poetic and occasionally secretly humorous. Its main focus is Emilie Lesbros’ vulnerably charismatic singing, backed-up by violin and bass in a shadow-like manner. She has worked a lot in theatre and dance circles.

Now living in New York, the French-German bassist Pascal Niggenkemper has studied both jazz and classical music and explores endlessly the new possibilities of music in all kinds of settings from solo and double bass tandem to larger ensembles, like Clarino and Carate Urio Orchestra. Japanese-French violinist Frantz Loriot (Barre Phillips, David Ware, etc.) does theatre, poetry and dance productions and also sound massage.
