Getting ready for Rudolstadt and the Ruth World Music Award!
What started as an experiment between 8 musicians from different backgrounds at the Women in Jazz festival in 2014, turned out to be the winner of a world music award! On July 4th 2015 we will be performing our own compositions with new arrangements for 8 musicians and singers at the Rudolstadt World Music festival in Germany. The 8 musicians include Caroline Thon who's the initiator of the project on sax, Alex Morsey from Germany on double bass, Bodek Janke from Poland/Kazakhstan on percussion and drums, Negar Bouban from Iran on oud, Veronika Todorova from Bulgaria on accordion, Feruza Ochilova from Uzbekistan on dutar and vocals, Simin Tander from Germany/Afghanistan on vocals and myself on piano.
The concert will take place in the main festival square in Rudolstadt after which the award will be given. Can't wait!
