Music for Unicorns

Duo frKRr

Dazzling, playful and idiosyncratic is how the duo frKRr present their new programme. Unicorns - aren't they those fluffy cuddly animals with hearts on their bottoms and glittery horns? Who can't help but be good? Or those fantasy creatures with the sad eyes? But there used to be these others, too. The unicorns who voluntarily left paradise. Who preferred to swim for 40 days and nights and sink at the end instead of being shipped on Noah's ark according to plan. So unicorns are not cuddly screech objects, but the real renegades of the West. «Music for Unicorns» is therefore dedicated to the rebellious heart. The rebellious heart that perhaps beats behind every rainbow mane.
