Metamorphosis - Hindol Deb / Kölner Indienwoche
DIe Kölner Indienwoche zu Gast im Stadtgarten.
Metamorphosis explores the boundaries between jazz, crossover and classical Indian music, making aesthetic connections between the two genres. Although the respective cultural identity is always kept in mind, the compositions are created on a medium path that creates balance and understanding.
Polyrhythmic and raga musical aspects flow into the compositions from Indian musical contexts, while the jazz language is retained in harmony and instrumentation. This project focuses on experiencing two different perspectives at eye level and accepting intercultural mergers, in this time more than ever.
After completing his master's degree in Improvising Art at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Reza Askari has participated in various bands and projects and has travelled to various European countries, the USA and the Middle and Far East. He has worked with artists such as Marc Ducret, Lee Konitz and Mike Herting and has performed at various jazz festivals such as the Leverkusen Jazz Festival, the Moers Festival and the Eight Bridges Festival.
Jan Philipp, born in Frankfurt am Main, has lived in Cologne since 2014 and is currently studying jazz percussion with Prof. Jonas Burgwinkel at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne. He is a member of numerous bands and ensembles, won the Jazz Prize of the City of Frankfurt in 2016 with his band "THE WHEREME?", with the Simon Below Quartet the scholarship of the Dörken Foundation and the Jury Prize of the Avignon Jazz Festival.
Clemens Orth is a master of a very sophisticated harmonic language, ranging from classical counterpoint to atonality. He uses external musical influences to set new accents in the improvisations and to connect seemingly distant musical points with each other. His encounters with musicians from all over the world made him a stylistically very experienced and versatile musician, who brilliantly masters to transfer his musical cosmos into the most different contexts.
Sitarist and composer Hindol explored the infinite combinations in the crossover of Indian music with various other genres such as Contemporary Western Classical, Jazz, Flamenco, Nordic Folk and Balkan music. Hindol was invited by the Carnegie Hall Academy of the French Ministry of Culture as an artist to collaborate with the musicians there. He teaches at the Pop Academy Mannheim and conducts sitar lessons and workshops on classical Indian music, improvisation and interpretation of Indian music in the Western musical context.
