Hottentots, The – Graceful


The Hottentots are folk festival favourites. This popular duo weave modern and traditional folk idioms creating a style of contemporary folk that is indelibly their own. Their original songs have won a string of awards in the Australian Contemporary Folk/World/ Roots scene.
What makes this duo so special, probably boils down to emotional honesty, genuine talent and the kaleidoscopic cultural & folk influences that inform their immensely appealing music.
The Hottentots dare to challenge the imagination & move the spirit, performing a range of music that combines the best of multi ethnic traditional music with contemporary song-writing. The lyrics are something else again. Deeply poetic, tinged with Aussie humour & wry social comment, they deal with the full breadth of human experience, be it with Carl’s warm, cheekily rustic tones or Parissa’s superbly dulcet ones that seem capable of finding an emotional context for every genre.

” If there’s any musical justice Graceful will be voted the Australian World Record of the year in any opinion poll you may care to name. Unreservedly recommended.” Richard Jasiutowitcz, Diaspora World Beat magazine #8
