Le Guess Who? & de Volkskrant bring you video portraits of artists performing at Le Guess Who? 2017.
We meet up with Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas to discuss his live performance, and his curated program for Le Guess Who? 2017. Here, he talks about the first time he heard the music of Mary Margaret O’Hara, the physical force of Pharmakon, and the desperation and the pleading in the music of Bulgarian women’s choir Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares:
Director: Nick Helderman
