La Femme Rouge is a strongly personal piece in which the Martin’s adopt the rhytmics and form language of flamenco and spice it up with their own views and harness the boundlessness of modern music and contemporary art. It is a highly charged requiem where the unpredictability of life can be both crippling and an absurdly empowering force.


The Martins are joined on stage by the group’s long-time collaborator, wind instrumentalist Erno Haukkala.
