Cookie Tongue / Alpha Romeo
Cookie Tongue is a theatrical expectation-defying freak folk music duo from Brooklyn originally conceived by Israeli born artist and musician Omer Gal in 2011 in San Francisco and is now joined by multi-instrumentalist and ritual artist/dancer Jacquelyn Marie Shannon. Over the years the band’s iterations have rotated between solo to six members. Cookie Tongue “transcends expectations for a musical performance” with incantatory songs brought further to life in performance with theatre, puppetry, dance, poetry, costume and animation. "Cookie Tongue is not of this realm. Current music trends have paved over their world. Cookie Tongue reaches out, grabs a hand and pulls us to hear."
