Do you dare? Théo Ceccaldi “Freaks” is a beautiful racket. Endearingly lurid, physical, queer, colourful. They rage and boil in the night – what better way to lose sleep.
Oh mon dieu! In 2018, there is no way to avoid the Ceccaldi brothers, these unruly string-riders with Sicilian roots. It’s high time to bring this glamorous project to Berlin. Théo Ceccaldi “Freaks” is a beautiful racket. Endearingly lurid, physical, queer, colourful. They rage and boil in the night – what better way to lose sleep. They don’t play as if, they play for real. Totally. “A stellar connection of feverish energy, sweetly bubbling calm, lyrical explosion and hypnotic trance”: This is the promise made by this band of conspirators from France.
"Amanda Dakota", the newest album by FREAKS, is effusively colorful and sometimes hysterical as well ! The new, progressive vibe that jazz has always been looking for: this experimental sextet gets it covered. Audience can expect a furiously virtuoso performance.
Twirls and rhythmic crossovers, flying solos. All played with a great rigor, which does not prohibit fantasy, melodic lyricism.
Théo Ceccaldi plays violin with such a maestria that it redefines what we could imagine this instrument capable of.
