Zoh Amba »Bhakti«

Jazz in Narodni dom

Narodni dom - small stage
Wed 24 APR 20:30

Ticket price: 8,00 - 10,00 EUR

This might sound as a worn-out phrase, but Zoh Amba truly stands on the shoulders of giants.  When this small and delicate, barely 23-year-old girl steps onto the stage, few can imagine what will follow in the next moment.  A real tour-de-force with the patinated grandeur of the sixties' icons – John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders, and Archie Shepp – but played for a new generation and with such fierceness that one might easily mistake her for Peter Brötzmann or John Zorn.

Before studying music at the San Francisco Conservatory, the New England Conservatory, and under the personal mentorship of David Murray in New York, she dedicated the majority of her time to writing and practicing saxophone amidst the serene tranquillity of the forests near her home in the Appalachian Mountains. Today, her incredibly unique music is full of folk melodies, charming refrains, and repetitive incantations. Her piercing and iconoclastic improvisations pulsate with tension yet also serve as a hymn to raw emotion and vulnerability.

She has collaborated with a number of prominent musicians such as Jim White (Dirty Three), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), legendary bassist William Parker, pianist Vijay Iyer, and many others. Bhakti is the title of her new album and the nickname for most of her current line-ups with ever-changing members.

Entrance fee: 10 EUR (regular price), 8 EUR (students)
