A HAWK AND A HACKSAW
A HAWK AND A HACKSAW (USA) With a new rescore to Paradjanov’s magical folklore classic “Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors” (UDSSR 1964)
New Mexico’s widescreen roving folk duo A Hawk and A Hacksaw present their first live soundtrack, a brand new rescore of legendary Russian director Sergio Paradjanov’s classic film “Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors”. Mixing folklore, sorcery and religious symbolism, the film tells the age old tale of a peasant’s love and loss set high up in the Carpathian mountains. For the last decade A Hawk and A Hacksaw have immersed themselves deeply in folk culture, with the colour, grandeur and gut-wrenching romance of their music an attempt to eulogise the fragile traditions of Eastern Europe, Russia and the Middle East. Their music offers the perfect complement to Parajadnov’s epic tale.
