SOUND SESSIONS: Broken Lexicon

Brook Davies & Alexey Medvedev: Broken Lexicon

Back from several months off stage, Broken Lexicon are bringing their Gypsy Jazz, Folk-Funk aesthetic back to the Space Studio & Gallery in Whanganui, where they last played (in the old premises) for the opening of La Fiesta in February 2018.

Russian born guitar virtuoso Alexey Medvedev conjures his richly percussive, fingerpicking guitar compositions around the powerful melodies and lyrics of Kiwi songwriter and storyteller Brook Davies. Together they fuse a sound that is freshly unique, but with familiar territory to draw you in. As a duo they are a dynamic songwriting force; daring each other to keep trying new forms, and always enjoying the process along the way. Prepare to sit back and be absorbed into emotive landscapes. Or let your jaw hit the ground as you witness an acoustic guitar being played like you’ve never seen before.

This promises to be an engaging, intimate live performance as part of what aims to become a monthly live concert series in one of Whanganui’s most loved art gallery spaces. So come along to support a local initiative, and to enjoy some of New Zealand’s finest musical talent.

Saturday, 25th May, 7.30-9.30pm
