Show starts with Barbarella's Bang Bang

Best known for their raucous live sets, the band fronted by the enigmatic Barbara Pugliese have become a staple of various festivals and club nights over the course of their career. With members originating from Italy, Latvia and London, it’s no surprise Barbarella’s Bang Bang have such a diverse and multicultural group of influences from South and East European Folk to classical punk rock.


Are an Electric Power Trio formed on the streets of Haringey, North London. Being among the most culturally diverse places in the world, Haringey is buzzing with exciting new bands that have formed across cultural and ethnic boundaries. Balothizer is one of these bands.
The project was the brainchild of bassist and percussionist Pavlos Mavromatakis (Electric Litany, The Turbans) and lute player and guitarist Nikos Ziarkas (Valia Calda). The concept was to bring the traditional music and poetry of the Island of Crete and breathe into it a modern and powerful heaviness, creating an edgy and ethereal new sound. Having been active in the Cretan Folk music scene for years, Pavlos (aka Pav Mav) and Nikos enlisted the skills of Stephen J Payne (Jools Holland, Jose Feliciano, Future Sound Cartel) a London born multi-instrumentalist with a deep background of world music and western styles, to bring the power necessary for this exciting new genre; Post Cretan.
With the line-up now complete Balothizer embarked on a series of high-powered shows, tours and festival dates across Europe, delivering their unique sound with an energy and ferociousness that has built them a strong and loyal following. A following who together with the band came up with the tagline that now defines this unique and powerful genre of music ...Cretan Music from Hell!
