Simin Tander is the newest discovery of the renowned ECM label. Born in Germany from Afghan descent this charismatic singer enchants the audience and critics with her unique compositions and tasteful improvisations. She often sings in a made up language resembling Farsi, as well as Pashto, an official language in Afghanistan. The American Journal ‘All about jazz’ wrote about her: “Simin Tander is a polyglot German-Afghan singer who combines the fierce creativity of Meredith Monk with the jazz savvy of Gretchen Parlato.”

Her collaboration with Bulgarian jazz pianist Dimitar Bodurov and German drummer Jens Düppe began about two years ago when they met for a festival gig, but soon it became clear that this might be the beginning of a new fruitful partnership. For their concert in Varna, the new trio has invited the visual artist Walter Padao, who turns live paintings into video art.
