Sound Garden — Malummí
This summer, the pavilion of the Fondation Beyeler park will once again resonate to the pulsating beats and melodies of our “Sound Garden.” Every Wednesday, visitors savoring the balmy evening air over a cool drink will get to enjoy the music of a line-up both regional and national, ranging from jazz and canzoni to disco and Hawaiian melodies. What better way to while away those precious mid-week hours than with the varied program of this year’s “Sound Garden” in the relaxed atmosphere of the museum’s park?
On this evening, the Malummí trio from Basel will take the stage of the pavilion. The warm sounds of the electric guitar, synthesizer, and percussion transport audiences into boundless, ethereal realms—to the ends of the Earth, where the infinite and the finite are no longer opposites. The cosmopolitan character of the trio, which has roots in Italy, Croatia, and Brazil, is reflected in their tracks, for as different as the songs are, they invariably tell of the longing for faraway places and for the ties that grow stronger with distance. Larissa Rapold, Giovanni Vicari, and Alon Ben like to experiment with electro, indie, folk, and pop, and quite often with non-musical acoustic material such as birdsong, spaceship sounds, or the roar of the sea. Add in Rapold’s voice, and it is easy to drift off and imagine oneself in some remote world.
This event is free.
