Red Bull Music Academy and CTM are proud to present incomparable vocalist and composer Diamanda Galás, performing her new albums All the Way and O Death in Europe for the first time.
Throughout her career, Diamanda Galás has been an inimitable force in performances and pieces that combine art and activism, with an oeuvre encompassing opera, blues, jazz, harsh noise, electronics, rockabilly, goth and more. These genres coalesce into a singular artistic vision through her piano playing, exhilarating voice and interpretative power, all of which will be on display during this solo performance in the stunning Saal 1 room at Funkhaus Berlin. Galás’s appearance also includes an installation of Schrei 27 created together with filmmaker Davide Pepe, expanding on a 1994 radio piece and live performance for an audiovisual work that depicts the tortured confession of a person taken to a mental hospital after being arrested for treason.
The concert is part of the larger Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp 2017 programme, which from 11 – 14 May assembles workshops, lectures and events with artists such as Le1f, Gareth Jones, Branko, Kahn & Need over its 4 days.
