The Loafing Heroes are a constantly evolving, international band based in Lisbon, with Bartholomew Ryan (Ireland) on vocals and guitar, Giulia Gallina (Italy) on concertina, piano and vocals, João Tordo (Portugal) on double bass, Carlos Santa Clara (Mozambique) and Judith Retzlik (Germany) on violin, and Jaime McGill (USA) on bass clarinet. They released their fifth album "The Baron in the Trees" in 2016. Their four previous albums (Crossing the Threshold, Planets, Chula, and Unterwegs) are all products of their years in Lisbon and Berlin. The songs tap into a variety of musical and literary interests and cosmopolitan landscapes filled with elusive characters, revolutionaries and imaginary worlds.
