Bad Mouse Orchestra – Ukulele swing from forgotten queer musicians

Bad Mouse Orchestra

We want to drag the music and songs of queer composers and performers, especially unknown ones, of the early 20th century out of the mists of time and into the light of the presence, so that the forgotten melodies and lyrics can be heard on European stages once again. The central goal is to make the diversity of queer creative power of that era visible. Featured in this program are the hauntingly beautiful, witty and charming songs of Bruz Fletcher, Gene Malin, Ma Rainey, Tony Jackson, Gladys Bentley, Cole Porter, Ray Bourbon and many more.
