A mazzy musical ceremony on this Mexican Day Of The Dead as well as a tribute to musicians/singers/artists no longer on this mortal coil (imagine an orchestra with Marilyn Monroe, Thelonious Monk, Ralph Stanley and John Lennon!!). From the USA, cult legend Eugene Chadbourne brings us sections of his fabled Post Day of the Dead Ritual suites of music for multiple performers. The suite is inspired by Chadbourne’s interest in Mexican culture and features Bristol musicians from all kind of fields playing specially composed music juxtaposed with improvisation and feats of magical thinking.
