This is must see live, “now or never” band experience. Angles 8 has performed at leading festivals around Europe and released several CDs and LPs, earning them fantastic reviews throughout the world. With their insatiable urge for adventure, Angles 8, is ready to meet new audiences. Their music is strong, cohesive and simple. Performed by sophisticated players who can make any table turn. Any musical idea can come into full force in a fraction of a second. Everything is there: pathos, playfulness, energy and a certain kind of bliss, strong and emotional, that hits the audience every time. The compositions by Martin Küchen are drawn from all kinds of influences: a memory of a certain instrument played during childhood; modern; Balkan party music; Swedish folk music; watching female dancers in West Africa turning the world upside down. The mode of composition, however, is very distinctive throughout.
