Les Triaboliques blends Justin’s desert-blues-soaked guitars with Lu’s Turkadelic saz and cümbüs and Ben’s mandolin/barizouki world-string theories.
Their album rivermudtwilight was a critical smash when released some years back on World Village. This is a must-see show for all those who delight in that acoustic-electric territory where blues, Americana, middle-eastern, oriental, folk and Russian all roam freely. Their unique combination of instruments and multilingual harmonised singing give flight to original songs , with a few choice covers such the Prisoners’ song, in Russian. All delivered in full twi-fi.
The delta, the desert. The steppes. The underground. Crossing the stone bridge between dark city and dusk. On the creaking causeway, instruments on backs, rain on their packs. They smell the black earth. They are intent.
