Matilda-2

The Serbian/Austrian singer and composer Matilda Leko was born in Vienna. Her musical style incorporates Balkan and Roma influences. Her interest in music began early with the rhythms of her homeland before pop, rock, soul, and blues led to her discovery of jazz and decision to study jazz singing at the Vienna Conservatory.

Matilda Leko was one of the first singers in Vienna to combine jazz with Balkan influences, making her a well-known name!

 

AB 2008-1Andreas Brunn, born in Weimar, began learning the clarinet at the age of six and the guitar at fourteen. He studied guitar and music theory at the Music Conservatory  “Franz Liszt” in Weimar .

In 1987, as part of a student exchange he visited Plovdiv in the Balkans, where he came into contact for the first time with the traditional music there. The Balkan style has since become an integral part of his music.

In 1988 he settled in former East Berlin and witnessed the fall of the Wall at first hand. In the years following the reunification of Germany, Berlin experienced a variety of musical influences. Andreas and Matilda were brought together through their mutual love of Eastern European music, combining it with their knowledge of jazz and contemporary music.

A few days after the death of Prince the duo had a concert and decided spontaneously to play some of the compositions of the star. From this an extremely exciting programme was born, including music from Prince, ACDC, Stevie Wonder and the Beatles.
