LUNATRAKTORS in Concert

Arts & Culture

Dark, trippy overtones and glitchy folk beats to raise your spirits. Launched in February 2017, Margate’s ‘broken folk’ duo LUNATRAKTORS (GB) fuse folk music with body percussion, harmonic singing, tap-dance and live looping. The project strips traditional folksong back to beats and vocals, weaving in influences from cabaret, early punk, hiphop and dance music. Inspired by minimalist composers, queer culture and vaudeville. clowning and live art, LUNATRAKTORS trawl the archives of Irish, English and Australian popular song. The offbeat tales they unearth of bravery in the face of forced migration, political unrest, abuse of authority, and institutional violence find particular resonance today.
