Flamenco Jazz Experience & Adam Baldych (PL/DK/SE/AR)
Jazz improvisations and Spanish passion
Flamenco Jazz Experience is a special encounter between jazz and flamenco. Two traditions, which, despite their diversity, have much to offer when opening their inner workings.
Flamenco Jazz Experience has taken on the challenge, immersed themselves and developed their own sound, where flamenco guitars, Cajon beats, flamenco songs, claps and dance steps are mixed with jazz drums, double bass and brass.
The group's newly written material draws on old flamenco rhythms, contemporary fusion sounds and much more, which has found its way into their musical universe with an expression that includes improvisations of jazz and Spanish passion. The result has surprised and thrilled audiences.
At the Aarhus and Copenhagen jazz festivals, Flamenco Jazz Experience has received praise such as "a sound with fine surprising effects", and "new lines, whims and outcomes - with Flamenco Jazz Experience, the two genres really complement each other".
Guest soloist Adam Baldych is a rising star on the European jazz sky. His unique sound and ability to capture the soul of music has long been documented on releases by the prestigious record company ACT and in international magazines:
"A powerful musical personality." - Jazzwise.
"Jazz violin redefined" - The Guardian. "
"Adam Baldych has a breathtaking virtuosity and unflagging creative drive that holds tremendous promise."- Jazz Journal.
"Hoffnungsvollste Neuentdeckung einer jungen Generation im zeitgenössischen Jazz." – Jazzpodium.
And with the Swedish Cajon wizard, Stephan Jarl, we may look forward to an exciting musical show.
