17-10-2018 Dizzy Moon 08: Isalis Duo / San Fransisco
17 October 2018 @ 21:00
Eighth edition of singer-songwriter series Dizzy Moon, hosted by Mark Ritsema and powered by Popunie. Free entrance.
Spanish singer Isabel Bermejo and Greek guitarist Michalis Michailidis are both active in divergent musical projects and bands. Michailidis is for instance part of the ambient duo HERMANO while Bermejo fronts the metal band Black Desert back in Spain. Together they shared the Dizzy-stage earlier this year as part of the experimental world-jazz band The Impact. As the Rotterdam based Isalis Duo they embrace the warmth of South America and Spain with relaxed bossa novas but also intense boleros. Their repertoire consists of renditions of famous songs with the personal touch of the two musicians and was already heard all over Europe.
San Francisco (F. T. Timmerman)
Having served as a bass player for Blaudzun, Lenya and other artists for nearly ten years, Franc Thomas Timmerman now takes the stage as San Francisco, presenting his debut album The Ghosts Of San Francisco. With his alias he likes to refer to Saint Francis, the holy hermit who preached to animals when there was no human audience. With a variety of influences, such as The Cure, Arcade Fire and Bright Eyes, the songs of San Francisco descend into worlds of extremes where intimacy or detachment and relativization or pure wallowing alternate. 10 days after the band presentation of The Ghosts… Timmerman will play an intimate solo set at Dizzy Moon.
