Konono No 1 opening five Bjork shows, playing Bowery Ballroom, playing thumb pianos
DOWNLOAD: a taste of Konono N°1 (MP3)
Will Antony be around to join you at your three upcoming NYC shows at Radio City, Apollo Theater, and United Palace? In fact, who (and what) can we expect to see at those performances?. I know that Konono No1 (another Volta collaborator) are playing a show in NYC during the first week of May. Can I assume that was coordinated with you?
It was a coincidence !! Not coordinated . Not sure exactly what will happen but i have asked both groups to join though . We´ll see … ? I have been rehearsing with my band in iceland . It is 10 brass girls ( icelandic ) jónas sen on keyboards , mark bell and damian taylor on electronics and chris corsano on drums .
Cearly Konono said yes – they will open all three of Bjork’s NYC shows + Chicago and Vancouver. I’m sure we can expect some thumb piano action during Bjork’s set as well. Joanna Newsom is opening for Bjork in Denver and San Francisco. Maybe those guys will get some guest harp.
Tickets are STILL on sale for Konono‘s show at Bowery Ballroom on May 5th. It’s the same night as their show with Bjork at United Palace. They’re amazingly playing both – long commute.
