HEIMSPIEL # 4: Alp Baku & Desmond Garcia
December 1st | kick-off: 8.30 p.m.
@ Alter Roter Löwe Rein | Richardstr. 31 | 12043 Berlin
Kick-off for Heimspiel # 4. Home is where your stereo plays features two artists on this occasion: Alp Baku and Desmond Garcia. The two will be playing both jointly and solo. Make sure to not miss out on them.
Since 2012 Alp Baku wanders on solopaths. He bushwhacks the city with his guitar and German lyrics, which can best be described as „small, strange song diamonds“ (Sebastian Hoffmann, The Greatest). His songs are at times catchy at others unwieldy, but always leave room for interpretation. In his other projects, such as his former folk band Falk & die Wiese and as Master of Ceremony at the Adriano Celentano Gebäck Orchester, Alp Baku has already proven that he is a talented singer – not just in German.
Banjo, bassdrum, vocals, guitar, hihat and harp make up the body of instruments Desmond Garcia employs in his one man band. Having grown weary of the continual coming and going of his fellow band members he one day decided to start his own band consisting of only him and a pile of instruments. Not a bad idea, as the outcome is a sound that is absolutely unique: comic country at its best!
