The band whose live performances offer audiences a truly unique musical experience will be joined by the Major Lift Orchestra,conducted by Matthew Coorey, in what promises to be an unforgettable musical event.
Performing music from their forthcoming and much anticipated album Piramida, Efterklang have engaged the inimitable talents of Missy Mazzoli (Kronos Quartet & Victoire), Karsten Fundal (Choir of Young Believers & Oh Land) and Daníel Bjarnason (Sigur Rós & Múm) to arrange their new music for orchestra. Also appearing at the Dublin Fringe Festival in Meeting House Square on Friday 14th September.
