CocoRosie

“They have terrifyingly beautiful voices … their songs inexhaustibly multilayered, fragile, radiant.” —New York Times

The bold and boundless art-folk duo CocoRosie makes a rare Minneapolis appearance. Sisters Bianca (Coco) and Sierra (Rosie) Casady have developed an international following for their mystical fairy tale world created through elaborate costumes, sets, and uncategorizable music.

Shaped by Bianca’s arresting, childlike tremor and Sierra’s classically trained operatic voice—as well as vintage, toy, and nontraditional instruments—their evocative sound is a swirl of folk, hip-hop, opera, and reggae. Their works are playful yet ominous, with hard-hitting truths voiced through twinkling pop innocence.

Sounding “like two little Billie Holidays an octave higher if you were on acid in Tokyo in 1926” (Jim Jarmusch), CocoRosie performs with a full ensemble in a clublike, all-standing concert, copresented with the Cedar.
