Hurdy-Gurdy Fusion Folk
With their fresh and innovative musical style, Dresden, Germany-based ZIRP are breathing new life into the instrumental folk scene. Roots meets modernism, traditional dance music meets contemporary rock, pop, and jazz – and the result is the one-of-a-kind folk-fusion experience that is ZIRP.
ZIRP are instantly recognizable by their trademark sound: a vibrant hurdy gurdy, embedded in a soundscape of acoustic guitar, bass, and groovy jazz drums. The hurdy gurdy is at times primal and organic, occasionally abstract with wild electronic effects – you’ve never heard this extraordinary instrument played quite the same way before!
On their album “Drehvolution” and at their live stage shows, ZIRP charm their audiences with spirited, infectiously joyful performances, harmonious and dreamy melodies, and progressive arrangements. It’s folklore meets the loop station – music for the free-spirited dancer in all of us.
The quartet fronted by hurdy-gurdy player Stephan Groth (Faun, Folk Noir) has performed at numerous renowned international festivals, including TFF Rudolstadt in Germany, Castlefest in the Netherlands, and FaerieWorlds in the USA. These days, the band is at home on any stage, from huge festivals to neighborhood clubs or the dance floors of the burgeoning bal folk scene.
On that note: Viva la Drehvolution!
