Carmen Souza- vocals

Carmen Souza is an incandescent female singer of Cape Verdean ancestry, a jazz-tinged chanteuse with a cool, smoky sound. Born and raised in Lisbon and now based in London, Souza grew up speaking both Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole. Immersing herself in the traditional rhythms of West Africa and Cape Verde, she honed a highly personal sound combining traditional rhythms and song forms with jazz and Brazilian influences. Her 2005 debut album Ess ê nha Cabo Verde catapulted her into the top ranks of rising Cape Verdean stars such as Lura, Sara Tavares, Mayra Andrade and Maria Alice. Her second release, Verdade (Truth), confirmed Souza’s status as a major new talent, and last year’s Protegid (Protected) made her a true world music force, with a sound illuminating the far-flung musical currents that germinate in Cape Verde’s impoverished soil.

In 2013 Carmen Souza won the title of Best female singer and Best Morna with the album Kachupada at the Cape Verdean ‘Grammys’- Cabo Verde Music Awards 2013.

After a hectic year with concerts in Major Festivals and venues all over the World, Kachupada was again included in important Best Album lists and Carmen made it to the #31 Best Vocal at the 2013 NPR Jazz Critics poll together with a position for Best New album for Kachupada right next to all the greats of Jazz in the World!

“Souza illuminates, stretches, and snaps back the elastic connections between Latin,  African and  Arabic music, American jazz and the sounds of Cape Verde. “

The Swing Dance Orchestra
Bettina Labeau vocals (Berlin)
Andrej Hermlin Musical Director (Berlin)
A retro trip with Andrej Hermlin and The Swing Dance Orchestra back in time to America of the 1930s. The unforgettable classics of the famous American Big Bands. The melodies of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and many other stars of the swing era.
This orchestra revives the original sound of the swing era, even the accessories of SWING DANCE ORCHESTRA – the instruments, the bandstands, the microphones and the musicians’ tailored outfits, are absolutely authentic.
Just lean back, close your eyes for a minute and dream that you are in a ballroom of a New York hotel sometime towards the end of the ‘30s.

Antonio Hart has been long recognized as one of the most talented instrumentalist of his generation. In recent years he has been recognized as an important jazz educator. In his 20 years as a professional musician he has performed and recorded with many jazz greats from Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Hargrove, Nancy Wilson, Nat Adderley, and McCoy Tyner to Dave Holland. Hart’s study of Jazz began at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, he studied with Bill Pierce, Andy McGhee and Joe Viola. The three teachers gave him the foundation he needed to develop into a professional musician. Because of the lessons learned at the Baltimore School for the Arts, Hart really thought it was important to have a balance between music and academia, so in his sophomore year he became a Music Education Major. He made many friends at Berklee, but the most important was Roy Hargrove. They spent three years touring the world and recording Hargrove’s first three records. Hart considers Hargrove to be his brother in life and music. He even used Hargrove on his first recording “For the First Time”. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Hart also worked on a Master’s Degree at Queens College. There he had the opportunity to learn from the great Jimmy Heath and Donald Byrd. Hart felt blessed and honored when Mr. Heath produced his second recording “Don’t You Know I Care.” His 1997 release, ‘Here I Stand’ Impulse records, earned Hart a 1997 Grammy nomination for “Best Jazz Instrumental Solo’ He has also been in much demand as a guest on over 100 recordings, and seven CDs as a leader. The latest, ‘All we Need’ Chiaroscuro Records. After 12 years at Queens College Hart was promoted to Full Professor. Hart also maintains an extensive performance schedule and continues to conduct workshops and clinics throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He feels very blessed to have the balance of teaching, as well as, traveling around the world. In his off time, he practices martial arts, and listens to other styles of music for inspiration. Hart is constantly trying to honor his many teachers by continuing to study music and teach to the best of his ability.

Take 5 

The Darius Brubeck Quratet 
Darius Brubeck   piano (London)
Dave O’Higgins   saxophone (London)
Matt Ridley   bass (London)
Wesley Gibbens   drums (London) 

Playing to sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, the quartet’s acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging. While Darius is known for representing his famous father’s musical legacy and for pioneering jazz education in South Africa, he has always performed his own compositions. Following the critical and popular success of “Cathy’s Summer”, the quartet is releasing a new album “Years Ago” for its concerts in 2016

Darius is interested in music from several traditions; South African jazz, the improvisation and rhythm of Asian musics and the lyricism and harmony of the European tradition. This quartet, which began in London, 10 years ago, plays a mixture of original music, jazz standards, Dave Brubeck hits and South African jazz
