Animal K

Animal K is the unprecedented meeting of Serge Teyssot-Gay’s electric guitar Marie-Suzanne de Loye’s Viola de Gamba with the shape-shifting voice of Violaine Lochu. Three  musicians, from diverse, eclectic worlds, coming together in the open-ended exploration of the Jewish musical repertoires of Central Europe and the Mediterranean basin. With rigour and freedom, they blend these powerful melodies with experimental sounds—post-punt, bruitiste and lyrical. Free improvisation is the keystone of this probing investigation, attempting to make heard the intense contemporaneity of Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish song.
