ABnormal - Double Bill: Farida Amadou + Ignatz

Facebook event Share Tweet

Clash between guitar blues improvisations and bass-driven punk-noise free improv

This concert is an ABnormal clubconcert. During these concerts, wearing a mask is mandatory and only bubbles of 1 or 2 people can be seated. 

You can read more about the ABnormal safety measures here.

‘This has more to do with improvisation and its allied possibilities of transcendence and failure than running up and down 12-bar schemes at lightning speed.’ The Wire

Ignatz is the alter-ego of Bram Devens. With an acoustic guitar and a few effects, he creates his very own style of improvisation-inspired Euro blues.

As autodidact, Farida Amadou draws the most exciting sounds out of her Fender bass without losing sight of the musicality. In her, to date, short musical career, she makes her mark (inter)nationally in challenging collaborations with big names like Peter Brötzmann, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Ken Vandermark, Mette Rasmussen, Hanne De Backer, Wolf Eyes, Audrey Lauro and Julien Desprez. Since her first encounter at the Summer Bummer Festival in 2016, she has played regularly with English drummer Steve Noble (Rip Rig & Panic, Æthenor, Saint Francis Duo) and in 2018 she was even a part of the punk-combo Cocaine Piss, from Liège. Solo tonight, in the AB Club!
