SK#5: Carolina Lee, Penelope Gkika and Samin Son, Mi Ho 

Carolina Lee

Carolina Lee’s lo-fi melodic folk-pop has hints of Karen Dalton and Syd Barrett, their harmonic structures and spacious arrangements leaning at times toward the psychedelic as they shift from dream to clarity and back again.

Penelope Gkika and Samin Son

Greek violinist Penelope Gkika applies her highly accomplished classical experience to a wide range of genres and aesthetic approaches, including traditional Turkish and Arabic music as well as contemporary compositions and free improvisation. Here we present her in duet with Korean multimedia artist and electroacoustic musician Samin Son.

Mi Ho

Born in Japan, Mi Ho’s current interest is peeling off layers of world one by one. A multi-instrumentalist and composer who brings a delicate, minimal and intimate approach to her performances.

LARIZA

Tänzelnd. treibend. ruhend. knisternd. waghalsig. rankend.
In den schrägen und zarten Klangwogen schmunzelt ein Geist, der zwischen den Extremen balanciert und gleichzeitig nach Einheit strebt. Die Musik folgt einer Intuition, deren innere Triebfeder die Neugier ist, die alles bis auf den Grund durchdringen möchte, einen mitnimmt, an unbekannte Orte führt und auf jeder Reise Raum lässt für Fantasie.
Die Kölner Band LARIZA, bestehend aus sechs jungen Musiker*innen, präsentiert einen progressiven Jazz, der Erwartungen erfüllt und wieder bricht, Unerwartetes zulässt und Geschichten erzählt, die die Grenze zwischen Traum und Realität sprengen – von Illusionen im Weltall, Fragen über die Ursprünge des Lebens, vom Zauber der Natur und Wagnissen menschlichen Zusammenseins.
Auf der Sakura Tour wagt sich die Band erneut in unbefahrene Gewässer vor. Neben den Songs ihrer zuletzt erschienen Online-EP “Native Tribes”, präsentiert LARIZA neue Kompositionen, darunter der Tourtitelsong „Sakura“ über das Erwachen und die schöpfende Kraft des Neubeginns.

Konzertbeginn: 21 Uhr
Eintritt: Hutspende

Practically Married #16


James Banner – Double Bass
Declan Forde – Piano

We are back, in duo! After months and months of special guests, we realised that no-one else really matters except us. So let’s celebrate the original twosome once more, at Donau115!

James and Declan have been ‘Practically Married’ since April 2015, a name proudly awarded to them due to their ability to spend time together almost every day with only minor frustrations, and the fact that they play almost every concert together.

Since 2015 they have collaborated with Vilde&Inga, Tobias Delius, John Hollenbeck, Max Andrzejewski, João Lopes Pereira, Eric Vaughn and many more, and have become a regular fixture on the Berlin swing dance scene, performing with Ugo Alunni and The Good Old Good Ones. They also perform as part of other acts including the award-winning Rachel Sermanni and James Banner’s USINE, and have performed sold out shows at Spiegesaal and Konzerthaus Berlin (with Fabiana Striffler and Mirna Bogdanovic) and Leeds Jazz Festival in 2018. Upcoming releases are planned for 2019 with Jordan Dinsdale & Will Howard (UK), as well as Toby Delius & Max Andrzejewski playing the music of Herbie Nichols.
