    "SOPHE Duo im Rahmen der Jazzwoche Berlin #4"

    Sophia Bicking, vocals, keys
    Hans Otto, drums

    Orania.Stage

    SOPHE is the freshly formed project of the Berlin singer, songwriter and lyricist Sophia Bicking. From years of experience working in a variety of musical projects and exploring the human voice arises Bicking’s new venture; a fusion of wide-ranging genres and influences. Her clear, warm lead voice hovers over interlocking background vocals, enthroned over pop and jazzy harmonies. SOPHE sounds as if Joni Mitchell, Nai Palm, Florence And The Machine and Frank Ocean are meeting to jam, whilst Lianne La Havas and Jeff Buckley are dreaming up a new, melancholic ballad in the next room. This evening she will play a solo- set of her own songs and favorite covers.

    Orania.Stage

    Atrin Madani is a world traveler when it comes to jazz. Firmly rooted in his Berlin neighborhood, he commutes between Berlin and Toronto. Born in 1998, he is a Berliner with no East or West in, he has never seen the division of the city, never seen the wall. Berlin became the capital and seat of government, for him it is above all the German capital of jazz. And there are no borders, no walls. Jazz is a universal language. The language of Atrin Madani. This exclusive program includes milestones of pop music from David Bowie to Donald Fagen and Bob Dylan to Coldplay.

    Meryem Kiliç, vocals, bass
    Dirk Häfner, guitar, bass
    Markus Deuber, keys, bass
    Michael Fromme, drums

    Orania.Stage

    Shimmering Rhodes and organ sounds, casual drum beats and haunting guitar sounds embed the melancholy rebellious voice of front woman Meryem Kiliç. Buhai's music moves elegantly between different genres and always sounds new and original. A catchy, handmade and thoroughly composed pop music moving between Kraut-Rock, Neue Deutsche Welle, French-Pop and Jazz. Sometimes subtle and melodic, sometimes harsh and defiant, sometimes sensual and playful.The four musicians have been playing together in different constellations for more than ten years. In collaboration with bassist and producer Ekki Maas, the production of the self-titled album "Buhai" has now emerged. The 14-song album takes the listener on summer vacation (St.Tropez), to Paris on the Champs-Élysées (Sommerwind), to deserted beaches (Offseason Tristesse) and into the vastness of space (Astronaut).

    Kiki & The Heartbreakers

    Oliver Busch, piano
    Christopher 'Kiki' Zabel, bass
    Aine Fujioka, drums

    Orania.Stage

    Kiki & The Heartbreakers play groovy and lyrical pop music with the rich sound of an acoustic jazz piano trio. Covering a wide range from floating Brazilian rhythms to funky disco beats, this is music to enjoy, listen to and move your feet. The band's eclectic inspiration is drawn from diverse sources like Marcos Valle, Milton Nascimento, Cal Tjader, Herbie Hancock, and Dua Lipa. Based in Berlin, the band unites three performers from wildly different musical backgrounds. Oliver has been active on the city's big band scene for many years. Bassist Kiki made a name for himself touring the world with various punk rock outfits. Aine, with her drumming roots firmly set in pop and rock, left her native Japan for the US, then headed from New York to Berlin, where she established herself as a highly sought-after band and session drummer. The band's name was chosen after Dua Lipa's smash hit "Break My Heart", as a tribute to all things fun!

    Night Train
    Die kleinste Big Band Deutschlands

    Rurik van Heys, piano
    Bernd Ratmeyer, drums
    Hendrik Nehls, bass

    Orania.Stage

    These three musicians draw from the repertoire of the really big Big Bands and don´t stop at stars like Count Basie, Duke Ellington or Thad Jones (...) They have climbed mountains whose peaks even the big Big Bands have yet to glimpse. The name of the mountain: first Jazz & Blues Award Berlin 2001. It must have been a positively charged mass of fans, because finally Night Train won the audience award of this challenge and of course won some self-confidence. You can feel it on their album "Express". Free of any dread they work on arrangements of famous songs like "Moten Swing", "Teach me tonight" oder "I´ll never fall in love again", without detracting from, or destroying, them. More importantly, Night Train's interpretations are felicitous tributes to these songs. On their route through the night, the talented musicians always have some swing in their baggage...

    STEREOFYSH

    Lysann Zander, vocals
    Gunnar Zander, guitar, electronics, backing vocals
    Lars Zander, saxophone, bass clarinet, backing vocals
    Hendrik Stiller, piano

    Orania.Stage

    A lot has happened around Stereofysh since their debut album "The Race", which "...can unfold its magic on the dance floor or just chilling by the river bank" [DasFilter]. Two years later, the very personal album "Ohana" was released, inspired by their tour through the USA and to Hawaii. Right in the middle of the late summer of 2020, the Berlin family trio Stereofysh released TINY REVOLUTION, which couldn't have been a better match for these months. In a time when nothing seems to fit together anymore, the longing for light electro pop songs and memories of the good old days in the outdoor pool with an ice cream cone awakens. For Stereofysh fans this EP is a logical development of the previous albums, for new friends it is the perfect kick-off into the band's electronic sound aquarium.

    If you look closely, there is more to Max Mutzke than just one artist. Max is many. This may sound strange at first, but it actually relates to the charismatic singer and songwriter's incredible versatility and, not forgetting, his insatiable creative curiosity. Whether pop, rock, soul, funk or jazz - Max Mutzke has a thousand musical facets. Tonight he will show these with the Matti Klein Soul Trio. The soulful jazz blend that Matti Klein delivers with Lars Zander on saxophone and bass clarinet and drummer André Seidel, his companion from "Mo' Blow" times, has addictive potential. Matti earned his reputation as one of the most interesting young groove jazzers on the German scene with his various vintage keyboards and on the grand piano. He shared stage and studio with stars like Sarah Connor, Ed Motta & Herbert Grönemeyer.
