André Simão portrays the contemporary trends in Brazilian guitar music at the highest artistic and technical level. In doing so, he opens up completely new sound worlds for us, away from the bossa nova clichés. In addition to works by established guitar composers such as Paulo Bellinati, Marco Pereira and Sérgio Assad, this CD gem also includes premiere recordings of works by Alberto Mejia and João Luiz.

The repertoire of the JOBIM sessions is remarkable: 14 popular and well-known songs by the Brazilian composer Tom Jobim - however not interpreted in the usual bossa nova sound, but creatively and fearlessly placed in new musical contexts, completely rearranged, partly alienated and in time signature, groove , Melody and harmony sequence abstracted. “We wanted to respectfully deconstruct Jobim's music and rearrange it in a surprising way, technically and artistically at a high level, but still audible to a wide audience,” says Andreas Schulz. The spectrum ranges from the economical 'Favela' with Steelstring, Dobro and Udu to the densely arranged and with over 8 minutes playing time, probably the most ambitious song 'Demais'. Even songs like the world-famous 'Girl from Ipanema' experience an exciting reinterpretation, in which you only recognize the original title after almost 2 minutes of playing time. Other notable tracks are 'Agua De Beber' as a funk shuffle, 'Once I Loved' in the Americana sound, 'Chega De Saudade' with echoes of Tango Nuevo or 'How Insensitive' with drum loops in a chill-out atmosphere.

On this album, Mischpoke takes the listener to the sunny side of life: joyful, hopeful, loving, funny, but also suffering and melancholic. Without forgetting the spirit of klezmorim, the five Hamburg musicians mix traditional with jazz, classical and world music to create a highly varied and dynamic sound atlas with dances, songs and virtuoso instrumental pieces. So the old sounds new and in the "new" you can hear the beautiful, often old melodies that leave no audience untouched.

In the new program "Di Eyne Velt", Mischpoke continues her melange of different styles and intercultural influences, without forgetting the spirit of klezmorim: sometimes traditional-klezmer in the medley "Happy Klezmorim", sometimes very Yiddish in "Lidele in yidish". , then sometimes fiery Romanian in “Hora Martisorului” or jazzy in “Oyf der zuniker zayt fun der gas”. In the epic piece "Chant", Mischpoke pays homage to the Jewish composer and violinist Paul Kirmann. This versatility not only inspires Klezmer fans. "Az felker, groys un kleyn, zoln kenen dos farshsteyn - All peoples of the world should be able to understand that," says a line of text from "Lidele in Yidish" - just "Di Eyne Velt"!

“Life is a circle, we will meet again. Then we know that the moment is not an eternity. The new Mischpoke program is inspired by the cycle of life. The band embarks on a journey into the past and future at the same time and yet has both feet firmly planted in the here and now. Traditional songs in a new guise alternate with original compositions that sound as if they had just been rediscovered. Life-affirming songs are about love, work, family, friends, suffering, hope and of course the incomparable, typically Yiddish combination of melancholy and wit. For 10 years now, Mischpoke has been putting all its experience from 10 years of togetherness on the scales and still discovering something new again and again. The 5 musicians let all their individual experiences from folklore, classical music and jazz flow into the arrangements without forgetting the spirit of klezmorim.

Homeland - what is that?
place or feeling? Am I coming from here? do i go there Or have I never been there?
The Hamburg band Mischpoke explores these socially highly topical and at the same time very personal questions on their fifth album "Heymland" with traditional, newly arranged and self-composed songs. And anyone who hears the deeply passionate playing of this extraordinary formation will feel very clearly: Mischpoke has found her home in music. In the coexistence of cultures and genres between klezmer, jazz, tango, world music and classical music. Heimat is a wildly dancing violin, a casually grooving piano, a gently searching clarinet. And at Mischpoke, home is above all the tense interplay of five strong artistic personalities. How they listen to each other, intuitively complement each other or consciously create breaks, how they very quietly touch the soul, only to unleash a furious euphoria shortly afterwards, how each voice comes into its own in the collective - all this is a stimulating experience. Mischpoke's concerts seem like a great musical challenge to make our life together full of joy and at the same time respectful.

Far removed from fashions and clichés, the Musica de Barrio project pursues a line that springs from the tradition of improvised music. That is what makes their music the music of the district, a district somewhere in the world where music is a lively part of everyday life, unvarnished and honest. Musica de Barrio draws from the rich source of traditional and modern music. "The trio offers an exciting mixture of tango, French musette and jazz, which draws a very special tension from spectacular contrasts and surprising turns." Tenor saxophone and accordion flirt, argue and dance with each other to surrender to the sound space of the grand piano.

At a concert by the band musique en route, it's easy to completely devote yourself to their varied folk music. It's no wonder that this ensemble consists of extremely experienced musicians who have played on numerous stages. As a guest, you can just as easily immerse yourself in an extremely rich world of sound, a kaleidoscope of styles, traditions and newly interpreted songs from all corners of Eastern Europe. Accordion, double bass, guitar, violin and vocals ring out, but also more exotic instruments such as the oriental darabukka or the kanna, a milk jug from Hungary used as a percussion instrument - always a new discovery. Her contagious joy of playing is unique, her irrepressible desire to interact with the audience in the most direct way and to pass on her joy in music unchanged. Spontaneously, honestly and always with the aim of leaving behind a lasting concert experience. In musique en route, everyone pulls together; a band that has its heart in the right place and gives new shine to time-honoured sounds.

The Leipzig klezmer trio "Rozhinkes" has released its debut CD "Momente". After three intensive years of making music together and due to the high demand from the enthusiastic audience, a high-quality audio production is now available for the first time. "Rozhinkes" was created in the summer of 2011 from a concert project as part of the "9. Jewish Week" in Leipzig. Since then, "Rozhinkes" has stood for passionate and multi-faceted music making - thrilling and touching at the same time. The musicians Antje Hoffmann (clarinet), Samuel Seifert (violin) and Tilmann Löser (piano) came to Klezmer music in different ways in addition to their basic classical training, e.g. B. by traveling abroad, or by personal contact with Giora Feidmann. In the meantime, "Rozhinkes" has established itself as a klezmer ensemble in Germany. The listener can expect a varied and atmospheric journey through the wide world of klezmer music - music to listen to, to dance to, to celebrate, to think about - and all of it handmade, that is, arranged and composed by the artists themselves. They act as special guests the Leipzig singer Karolina Trybala and the bass player Friedemann Seifert.

What I want to express with these songs is the story of a woman who has had to travel from country to country in search of the meaning of her life. It became clear to me that it is not possible for me to find meaning in life without having recognized my own roots.
So in the last two years I have started another journey: the journey to myself and into my past. I often heard my grandmother's voice in my mind, standing behind the stove and singing:
Gece sakit çay axir
Lal sularda ay axir...
The night is silent
The river flows
And the moon shines in the silent river...
That voice was like a kind of guide that brought me back to myself. From the moment of this realization I was able to feel the ground beneath my feet. Gradually, I felt roots that found footing in the new soil. And, from that moment on, I realized that only if a tree's roots reach deep into the earth can that tree grow tall.
I started collecting songs from my childhood with the accompaniment and support of gifted musicians such as Benjamin Stein, Steffen Thormählen, Uwe Böttcher, Manfred Leuchter and Mohamed Najem. We have tried to edit them in such a way that the pure and innocent character of these songs is not lost, but that they may even blossom into new ones. I wish that.
With respect for the originals from Venezuela, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Panama, Spanish Mode created harmonious arrangements for their instrumentation and added suitable original compositions for "Ay Ay Ay!". The band wants to create a synthesis with jazz and creates space for exciting improvisations within the poetic songs.

One of the youngest shoots of the creative Madrid music scene is the duo Zaruk, consisting of the cellist Iris Azquinezer and the German guitarist Rainer Seiferth, who has lived in Spain since 2005. On their debut "Hagadá" Zaruk devote themselves entirely to the music of the Sephardic Jews who were expelled from Spain at the end of the 15th century and settled in various regions of the Mediterranean. Their songs are colored by the sounds of these regions and there is always a touch of melancholy about their lost Spanish homeland, Sefarad.
