Dark Blue Orchestra for the first time in Namibia
March 8, 2018, 5:38pm
For the first in Namibia, the French music band Dark Blue Orchestra will be on stage in the context of the Francophonie celebrations of March, the Franco Namibia Cultural Centre has announced.
For a punchy final, a closing concert with the French music group as headliner will end the Francophonie Week at the FNCC on the Saturday 24th of March.
Local artists like Shungu, Four by Four and Dolar are also expected.
"The Dark Blue Orchestra" will steep the listener into a cabaret-rock universe both broody and romantic, in the vein of Ziggy Stardust or Phantom of the Paradise.
One hears Scott Walker, Tom Waits, Nick Cave and The Doors, all cleverly arranged with string orchestrations reminiscent of Debussy and Ravel.
