Percussion wizard Tatu Rönkkö (FIN) and indie folk rock band Efterklang (DEN) will perform together at Ankara Nord.
Formed in 2001. They have have produced so far – most notably across three acclaimed albums, 2004’s 'Tripper', 2007’s "Parades" and 2010’s "Magic Chairs" – have each explored different directions, each an end product of remarkably studied songcraft and emotional resonance. But "Piramida" (2012) is perhaps the band’s greatest achievement: an album bringing the outside in, informed by frozen time and the relics humanity leaves in its expanding wake.
When the band first saw photographs of a forgotten settlement called Piramida, slowly dying, on Spitsbergen, an island midway between the Norwegian mainland and the North Pole. Over nine days, Efterklang accumulated over a thousand field recordings from the many and varied environments they encountered.
Along the new album Efterklang has also launched "The Piramida Concerts" which premiered in a unique concert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Sydney Opera House. In total the band played 16 of these orchestral concerts in connection with the release of the "Piramida" album.
