Info for TO EN

Theo Kapilidis passionately fuses atmospheric indie jazz improvisations with the rich folklore of his native Greece and electronic music. Together with his former students at the ZHdK, Florian Egli and Maxime Paratte, he lets his compositions appear full of light, life and a penchant for the lightness of being. Like the great journey from the Black Sea via the Peloponnese and many other stations in the Mediterranean region, "To En" shows what such a journey into the depths of jazz can look like - without being superficial or cliched. The eight original compositions are extremely harmonious and symbiotic, carried by unusual time signatures. Here the actual concept of Kapilidis is realized; to make the metrical diversity of the south-eastern Balkan regions ring out in a swinging jazz context.
