About the event

Rebekka Salomеa, voice, composition • Yannis Anft, keyboard • Oliver Lutz, bass • Silvan Strauss, drums

Pushing boundaries. SALOMEA manifests a dazzling multi-genre melting pot: music as a deep conversation, a band taking risks, a voice like from another universe, stirring and warm. Transforming each performance into an immersive experience, with a profound belief in love, courage and honesty. German/US-American singer, composer, lyricist and instrumentalist Rebekka Salomea and her high profile band, Yannis Anft on keys, Oliver Lutz on bass and Leif Berger on drums, have built a strong following with their unique contemporary Jazz Electronica sound and spectacular live shows. They have opened for Brainfeeder artists Louis Cole & Genevieve Artadi, collaborated with artists like Salami Rose Joe Louis, Ray Lozano, Silvan Strauss, Gianni Brezzo, NDR Big Band. The band’s long term passion and persistence landed SALOMEA firmly into the European music scene, seeing them light up some of the hottest festival stages like Elbjazz (Arte concert), co pop, XJAZZ, Berlin Popkultur, Jazz Open, Moers Festival (GER), Waves Vienna (AT), Jazzablanca (Morocco) and Avignon Jazz Festival (FR) and winning them an equally passionate fan base along the way. Against the backdrop of Hip hop infused Jazz and trappy Electronica SALOMEA offers their music and the stories that come with it as a place, sound and feeling of belonging and ultimately freedom. 

The concert is organized with the financial support of the platform for artistic performance and professional development NICA.
