The joy of the acoustic voice

I have been happily invited to play a wonderful concert in Galerie Kremers, with Cymin Samawatie (voice) , Liz Allbee (trumpet), and Korhan Erel (electronics) during one of the appointment of  “Cymin Samawatie and Friends Music Lounge”. I love to sing in the slummy small venues of Berlin, but I am still a singer…so I get very enthusiastic when I can sing in big spaces, old building, high ceiling and enjoy overtones and natural space reverb. It gives me a lot of inspirations, it is like my mind and body feeling goes back to an imaginary time made of voices, echos, rhymes and poetry.

The last concert of 2016 will be again acoustic and this time I will give my voice to a big ensemble of   musicians and dancers/movers in the wonderful rooms of Bibliothek am Luisenbad in Wedding, Berlin for  “KlangWelten ad hoc”, series of event organized by Thomas Gerwin.

Very happy to have played in this Festival in Hamburg with our friend wonderful Spanish pianist Josep-Maria Balanya  and the brilliant Dirk Dhonau on percussion. The venue was also very spacial. A conference room in DESY, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron the national research center in Germany.

Soon a video of the performance will come! 🙂

DuoSubRosa in Berlin and Copenhagen

I am very happy that DuoSubRosa, the collaboration of me and Uygur Vural (cello and electronics) after a little break is suddenly alive again. We have just play the very first version of our new performance inspired by traditional calls and shouts at Mirror Mirror Festival II in Berlin that take inspiration from my research about afro-american Hollers and Field-calls but also from all the voices of the people who calls each other and shout in the space, from the Mediterranean street sellers, the mountains calls to the muslim call for prayer.

In April and May we will perform in Copenhagen and again in Berlin for SONoRA#3 with wonderful guest as Mia Dyberg on alto sax, Federico Corsini on double bass and Matthias Müller.  Here all the details.
