Dead Can Dance


I Dead Can Dance sono un duo musicale world-fusion anglo-australiano composto da Lisa Gerrard (contralto) e Brendan Perry (baritono).

Il gruppo nasce a Melbourne (Australia) nel 1981, si scioglie nel 1998 e viene riunito per un tour mondiale nel 2005 e ancora nel 2011 per un nuovo album e relativo tour mondiale.


Dead Can Dance is an English-Australian musical project formed in 1981 in Melbourne by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. The band relocated to London, England, in May 1982. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance’s style as “constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras and art rock.”[1]

Having disbanded in 1998, they reunited briefly in 2005 for a world tour and reformed in 2011, releasing a new album (Anastasis) and embarking on several tours.
