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 »
