Turkish yearning, Brazilian melancholy, Persian wisdom of universal love and an Italian philosophical perspective of the 4 seasons root the creative explorations of sound with a touch of electronics, giving an ample space to the innocent songs sculpted by the Turkish/Romanian duo.
A melting pot ranging from subtle, immersive to explosive and theatrical describe the sound of the album DANCE, ready to be released in June 2018.
Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the duo is known for their intimate and intense performances. Winner of Montreaux Jazz Competition, Sanem Kalfa sings original compositions and cover songs in her mother tongue (Turkish), Portuguese, Italian and English. The dialog is rendered together with poly-instrumentalist and composer George Dumitriu, active on the jazz, contemporary classical and improvised music scenes of Amsterdam.
