tAngerinecAt - Ukraine/UK

Stunning lead hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, floaty flutes, massive drone bass and DIY samples seamlessly combine with industrial-rave beats, anarchist political views and piercing vulnerability in an utterly captivating show.

The nomadic duo tAngerinecAt was formed in 2008 in Ukraine as a collaboration between Ukrainian Eugene Purpurovsky and English Paul Chilton. Inspired by their studies, travels and music experiences in remote parts of the Carpathian Mountains, their music has also absorbed different forms of Ukrainian and Soviet counterculture.

They have four independently released, successfully selling albums that have had airplay on BBC 2, BBC 3 and BBC 6. The band has toured internationally in Ukraine, UK and Russia

“tAngerinecAt brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum...”- Ben Knight, LEFTLION

"Watch out for: tAngerinecAt... this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time..." - LOUDER THAN WAR

"I've never seen someone play a hurdy-gurdy so punk..."

- DEVIL’S DYKE NETWORK

"Tangerinecat exploded into my world and I'm a happier man for it! Awesome energy and multidisciplinary. Myself and the team at New Art Exchange really appreciated your work."

- Jason Pollitt‎, NEW ART EXCHANGE

"Album is immense. Exceptional..."

- John Hywel Morris, PRS for Music Senior Membership Development Manager, Wales

RUFUS MUFASA - Cardiff

Literary activist Rufus Mufasa is a pioneering participatory artist who advocates hip hop education and poetry development accessible to all. Lyricist, rapper and performance art poet, with an MA in scriptwriting, Rufus recently launch a solo album, Fur Coats From The Lion’s Den, dubbed a cultural highlight by Wales Arts Review, and was shortlisted for two music awards.

Bilingual Slam Champ, from squat gigs to main stage at Hay, from politics to shamanic ritual, the magic and mayhem of motherhood, from ancestry to imagining the future, it's all here. Expect the unexpected, fire up the feels...

Rufus is a Hay Writer at Work, supports several intergenerational projects, mentors men at Parc Prison and is planning her fourth visit to Finland, where she recently headlined the Helsinki Literature Festival. As well as being the first Welsh artist to perform at Ruisrock festival, she mentors Finnish beat poets, and now writes trilingually. Rufus was cast for National Theatre Wales' first production of 2019, Storm 3, and has just been announced the first Future Generations poet in residence.

Her poetry collection, Flashbacks and Flowers, was recently highly commended in the Geoff Stevens Memorial Prize.

Rufus’ performance encompasses the creative dexterity of working with the welsh language. From beat boxed poetry, to mind bending hip hop influenced by jazz, folk, blues and reggae, an approach to the Welsh language that connects us to Wales avd the world!

An Avant garde”ness” that deliberately bends the rules, to conjure up psychedelic soundscapes, building landscapes to explore.

Music

EXPERIMENTAL SONIC MACHINES + ERNIE, EXPERIMENTAL SONIC MACHINES' ROBOT DRUMMER - Lincoln

Peter K Rollings brings sci-fi music from the future, with heavy post-punk influences -- driving rhythms and basslines created from a cosmic overlord. His music is created from handmade sonic machines, for example rhythms etched out on spinning cardboard discs triggering heavy basslines, and a robot drummer called Ernie, wrapped in tin foil. An Experimental Sonic Machines performance finds some very strange places as Peter brings different machines online, switching between different alter-egos. There's nothing else quite like it, maybe a heady mix of Frank Sidebottom and Cabaret Voltaire...
