Saturday 5th November at Lingotto Fiere, the 16th edition of Club To Club will host the Italian debut of Junun, a project by Radiohead’s guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood, Israeli composer and performer Shye Ben Tzur, and Indian nine-piece orchestra Rajasthan Express.
Recorded in Mehrangarh fort, in the city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan (in North-West India), the musicians have mixed languages, sounds and different traditions: the devotional chant of Shye Ben Tzur in Hindi, Jewish and Kurd, the electronic textures and guitars of Jonny Greenwood, and the traditional music of the Rajasthan Express. Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice) has directed a documentary on the recording session, which perfectly catches the meeting point between Easter and Western cultures. Produced by Radiohead’s historical producer Nigel Godrich, the album is composed of 13 tracks.
Club To Club is an unmissable chance to see the Junun band play live, in the only tour in support of the album. Buy your ticket on:
