‘It was mesmerizing, scary in parts and often hypnotic, but above all a joyous celebration with a meze of cultural references.

From the mournful violin and intense flute to the tribal drums and soaring falsetto… this was the musical equivalent of opening a fairytale pop-up book and watching the characters jump out and dance around your head.’

Carl Batson, reviewing Othon live at the Garage, Islington.

And, in Where’s Wally style, keep your eyes peeled for the Marc Almond cameo.
