Kalfa / Badenhorst / Dumitriu

Surprising jazz with influences from the Black Sea region

A Turkish singer/cellist from Trabzon on the coast (Kalfa), a guitarist/violist from Bacău in the Romanian interior (Dumitriu) and as a wild card a Flemish clarinetist/saxophonist from Antwerp (Badenhorst), three real characters with a longer joint musical practice, met in the city delta of The Lowlands to work on a variety of songs hailing from the Black Sea.

As they cleared the air to breathe in ten of these old songs they are close to, these three musicians let out a selection of Turkish, Georgian, Laz, Pontus-Greek and Tatar origin to receive enlightenment and brilliance.
