Sequoyah Tiger is the brainchild of Italian singer-songwriter, composer and music producer Leila Gharib. After the first EP Ta-Ta-Ta-Time, released on the Berlin-based label Morr Music, Sequoyah Tiger’s debut album Parabolabandit (Morr Music, 2017) expands Leila’s distinct musical language, dragging us deep into her dark, twisted and sparkling fantasy. While exploring the limits and hubs of pop traditions, weird sound studies and vocal experiments, she comes up with bewilderingly beautiful songs in which vintage rock’n’roll and present-day avant pop happily clash with electronic and acoustic elements, jagged beats and subtle rhythms, otherworldly shouts and confessional words. The live-set is a collaboration with the dancer choreographer Sonia Brunelli, an artistic dialogue which started in 2008 with the foundation of the performing arts group Barokthegreat. The two artists create together a sound dramaturgy of the live performance, in which the body provides a certain ‘thickness', playing with the three-dimensionality of the actions in a specific visual dynamic.
