A RIOT THROUGH YOUR BORDERS
We complete our trio of album with Beyoncé’s 2016 masterpiece, LEMONADE. With Lemonade, Beyoncé embraces the concept album, and as well as producing the traditional audio album, released a stunning 65-minute visual album in collaboration with British-Somali poet Warsan Shire. In our acoustic string version of Lemonade, we follow this melding together of music and spoken word, and will be joined by singer-songwriter MELA, who will act as our Beyoncé/Kendrick/Warsan.
We aim to bring our usual exploration of acoustic string sounds, our pushing of string playing techniques, and our desire to experience this wonderful work of art in a different context with all the respect and love that it demands.
Wooden Elephant’s version of Beyoncé’s Lemonade will be premiered at PODIUM Festival, Esslingen, on 4th May 2019.
