Dead Can Dance (sometimes referred to as DCD) are an ethereal neoclassical world music duo which formed in Melbourne, Australia, in August 1981. DCD comes to Davies Symphony Hall in a rare live performance. The band's mainstays are Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Their 1996 album Spiritchaser reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top World Music Albums Chart. Australian music historian Ian McFarlane described Dead Can Dance as having an ambient style of world music that "constructed soundscapes of mesmerising grandeur and solemn beauty... with African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chants, Middle Eastern mantras and art-rock."
