Distorted Festival will host two very interesting artists who will perform this year: the legendary American artist and performer JARBOE and the occult Italian duo FATHER MUPRHY.
The evening will start with Father Murphy’s show – after that Jarboe will join the stage and all the three of them will perform together Jarboe’s new songs and also her previous compositions.
Jarboe draws from a variety of sources: childhood in the Mississippi delta and New Orleans, life in NYC’s east village during the post no-wave scene in the band Swans, university studies in literature and theatre, global travels, and a history of extensive recordings, collaborations, and performances (clubs, theaters, art galleries, cathedrals, festivals, live radio, television, film). Jarboe’s voice and music is known for versatility and emotional conveyance in bold experimental as well as melodic diversity and expression. Over the course of her life through efforts in past and present disciplines, Jarboe explores the rebuilding / reinventing of identity and the elemental structures of personae.
