Oud, trumpet and piano: those are the ingredients for success of Greek pianist and composer Tania Giannouli, nominated for the German Jazz Award 2021. The interplay of the instruments creates intriguing sounds and textures and a delightful emotional eloquence.
Giannouli's music interprets her hope, beauty and art and balances between folk music and modern jazz, with both Mediterranean and Eastern influences.
There have been no joyful gatherings for a long time. The image fits the current sense of the times. Life can be hard for many of us. That is why we need hope, beauty and art, especially now. Tania Giannouli.
In Fading Light is again a very special album by the exceptionally talented Giannouli who, in the company of the equally richly talented Polyzogopoulos and Tapakis, manages to create the most beautiful musical landscapes. Written in Music
