Damo Suzuki is the former lead singer of the legendary and seminal German krautrock band ‘Can’. As a teenager, Suzuki spent the late 1960s wandering around Europe, often busking. When Malcolm Mooney left ‘Can’ after recording their first album Monster Movie, remaining ‘Can’ members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit spotted Suzuki busking in Munich, Germany. They invited him to join the group, and he performed with them that evening.
Suzuki was with Can from 1970 to 1973, recording a number of well-regarded albums such as Tago Mago, Future Days and Ege Bamyasi. Suzuki’s first vocal performance with Can was “Don’t Turn the Light On, Leave Me Alone”. His freeform, often improvised lyrics, were sung in no particular language.
Damo has been performing around the world since mid 1997 with his project DAMO SUZUKI´S NETWORK. With this project, he performs live improvisational music with various local musicians, so-called “Sound Carriers”. He has done this with more than 7,000 different musicians in 43 countries.
He will be bringing this project to Lunar Festival, creating a unique musical experience with other Lunar musicians – making “The Lunar Orchestra”. This will be a performance never seen anywhere else before, and will never be seen again!
“I’m creating time and space of the moment with ever changing local sound carriers (musicians) around the world. This is pure making music, energy share, every time different result”.
