DEAD CAN DANCE

The phenomenal band of 1980's and 90's, Dead Can Dance is kicking off their world tour from Istanbul.
Formed in Australia by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, the band relocated to London in May 1982 and disbanded in 1998. Their 1996 album Spiritchaser reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top World Music Albums Chart. In order to concentrate on their solo careers and due to ongoing personal differences between Perry and Gerrard, the project was, however, put on hiatus. In 2012 Dead Can Dance released the anticipated album "Live Happenings".

Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance as having an ambient style of world music that "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty with African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chants, Middle Eastern mantras, and art-rock."
