Electronic Music Legends Live
Dubbed the ‘Godfathers of Techno’, legendary German duo D.A.F. (Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft) will make their Australian debut in an exclusive show for Melbourne Music Week.
The founders are icons of the 80s: Robert Görl (drums, electronics) and Gabriel "Gabi" Delgado-López (vocals). Known for experimental and controversial electronic music, the Elektro-Punk-Band was founded in 1978 in Wuppertal. Their influence spanning a broad sonic spectrum still found in dance music today. Reaching mythical proportions, their international renown will come to a head for one very special night at the Melbourne Townhall in which maybe even the organ will be played...
The two musicians not only revolutionised the music genre, they also turned the stages upside down. Hidden behind a technology and keyboard tower, they brought a whole new kind of music to the stage, whose degree of provocation reached its climax with the hit single "The Mussolini".
D.A.F. count as a pioneer and inspiration for the genres Electropunk, Electronic Body Music and Techno.
