TO BUY OUR NEW ALBUM [CD & VINYL]
NEW SINGLE: "O OUTRO LADO"
The Loafing Heroes are a constantly evolving, international band, led by Irish vocalist, guitarist and composer Bartholomew Ryan. The Lisbon-based group represents a cosmopolitan meeting of musical minds: Giulia Gallina (Italy) on concertina, piano and vocals, João Tordo (Portugal) on double bass, Judith Retzlik (Germany) on violin, and Jaime McGill (USA) on bass clarinet. They released their fifth album "The Baron in the Trees" on 6th May 2016 in Music Box, Lisbon. Their four previous albums (Crossing the Threshold, Planets, Chula, and Unterwegs) are all products of their years in Lisbon and Berlin. Their songs tap into a variety of musical and literary interests in wandering through myriad fractured cities and landscapes filled with elusive wanderers, revolutionaries, ancient books, and lost loved ones.
