So let's just give you something of the backstory and let you find this one on Spotify or wherever if it sounds like your thing.
Touki Delphine are a classically-trained Dutch multi-media trio who play as a chamber outfit with electronica, “kitchen machines and simple cookware”. Bernadeta Astari is Jakarta-born soprano who graduated from Utrecht Conservatory and currently tours doing Sondheim.
This album features songs by Handel, Monteverdi, Purcell and Ravel (among others) but they are in . . . umm, different musical settings.
It's in that electronica, kitchen implement reference.
Now this is perhaps better seen than merely heard as they perform in a theatrical setting and . . .
Something about “a living room act from The Encyclopedia for the Modern Housewife”.
It's different, very poppy, not played for cheap laughs and . . .
We leave it to you.
It's on their This Could Be Your Music Label label.
