Urban Stories – concert of Thea Soti & Jonas Engel

Librebook in collaboration with the Balassi Institute presents the concert URBAN STORIES, a collaboration between Hungarian new-age vocalist Thea Soti and German saxophonist Jonas Engel.

She is regarded as a courageous and uncompromising voice at the interface of creative jazz, modern pop music, avant-garde poetry and improvised music. In addition to her interdisciplinary projects with dancers, she enjoys working on the borderline between language, sound and text. She is a founding member of the European composer´s collective SUNG SOUND and co-curator of the experimental concert series “STIMMUNGEN” in Loft Cologne.

He is known for his edgy and powerful sound integrating extended techniques. He is the leader of the band “Own Your Bones”, a quartet which daringly exploits the possibilities of sound and composition for two saxophones. Engel´s other project is the successful jazz-trio “Just Another Foundry”, which has won several jazz awards throughout Europe. Concert tours throughout Europe, South America, Middle East, China and South-East Asia.

The concert makes part of Librebook’s event “European storytelling & books”
