Forest of Fools return to The Magic Garden
February 2, 2019 @ 8:00 pm7£7
Festival royalty forest of fools make a long awaited return to The Magic Garden to bring you the wonders of their newly invented genre, Urban Space Folk!
This show promises the very best from the band and possibly a few surprises too!
‘forest of fools fuse traditional instruments with funked-up, high tempo beats, charting a course into the depths of the musical unknown. Where no single tune is exactly as it seems, this is acoustic dance music but not as we know it!In the blink of an eye, you’ll be whisked from the courtyards of Medieval England, to an underground warehouse party. 180 BPM D&B and Jungle drum sections masterfully interlaced with African percussion set the tempo for a high-energy supernova of effects-laden trance-folk melodeon and psychedelic lead guitar. Harmonious funk-laced bass guitar sits alongside didge-inspired, multi-phonic Sousaphone Brass to create a sub-bass frenzy with serious groove. The resulting composition is as ground-breaking as it is sonically beautiful; a true musical odyssey for the 21st century.’
