Dead Can Dance

Dead Can Dance is an English-Australian musical project that formed in 1981 in Melbourne by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. The band relocated to London, England, in May 1982. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance's style as "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty; African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chant, Middle Eastern mantras and art rock." Having disbanded in 1998, they reunited briefly in 2005 for a world tour and reformed in 2011, releasing a new album and embarking on several tours. ... more on Wikipedia
