Twins of El Dorado

Twins of El Dorado

Twins of El Dorado is a modern art song ensemble featuring vocalist Kristin Slipp and trumpeter Joe Moffett.

By turns playful, ritualistic, and downright bizarre, the duo performs original texts and music, and also explores the works of others, from medieval choral music to pieces by saxophonist Steve Lacy.

Ben Holmes & Patrick Farrell are a one-of-a-kind trumpet and accordion duo whose performances find the common thread in klezmer, original concert music, and improvisation, interpretations of Romantic-era composers, pop music and more.

Accordionist Patrick Farrell (Yo-Yo Ma, Frank London, Yiddish Art Trio) and trumpeter Ben Holmes (Slavic Soul Party!, Ben Holmes Quartet, Brooklyn Qawwali Party) bring together a unique array of experiences to present a truly original program of music ranging from the 19th-21st Century and beyond.

The duo managed to traverse many sonic lands, from the hypnotic guitar to the conversational trumpet(combined in convention-bending ways). Words cannot really give justice to the music. Here is to another performance by the duo.
