Dutch-Belgian acoustic-electronic piano trio De Beren Gieren (The Bear Vultures) are known for their unique energetic sound, sparkling melodies, complex structures and quirky song titles. They bring a blend of polyrhythmic soundscapes, sing-alongs and elitist twists, showing an ability to change mood quite suddenly in a way that constantly holds one's attention. The band will perform their last album Dug out Skyscrapers; for which the trio created some unexpected compositions by puzzling with impressionistic melodies and energetic drums. A live experience not to be missed!
Maria Faust is a name to remember on the international jazz scene. This multi-award winning Estonian saxophonist, arranger and composer is making a name for herself with her impressive improvisations, and as the leader and conductor of larger ensembles. Drawing on her classical music training, she explores new avenues for jazz music with her ensemble Maria Faust Sacrum Facere. The group is also the synthesis of the two passions of this Estonian "Jazz Musician of the Year" in 2016: free improvisation combined with classical composition.
