The Festival returns to the leafy courtyard at Barts for a sunny series of Friday afternoon concerts.
Vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist, and looping beat-boxing songwriter Mal Webb sings his songs about all manner of stuff, using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. It’s a lip to lung journey through the physics, physiology, and phrivolity of all the sounds a face can make. Sideways yodelling, beatbox, harmonics, throat singing, uvular fluttering, advanced clapping – a little bit like Bobby McFerrin, Aphex Twin, and Cole Porter playing scrabble.
Presented in partnership with Vital Arts
