New Generation #JazzLab – Winners Night
powered by Jaguar
We are looking forward to the second edition of our "New Generation #JazzLab" presented by Jaguar. On this night we see our two winning acts perform together with their mentors. The stars of tomorrow – today!
InSpace is an ensemble of five young musicians from Ukraine, Russia and Germany. The compositions of their singer Kateryna Kravchenko are supported by an acoustic and warm band sound, which exhausts the timbre of each individual instrument and gives the music a depth which is rich in contrast. The melody assumes the leading role. Not subject to any pulse, it is organically embedded in complex rhythmic structures. It intertwines with the accompaniment to form a continuous unity. The synergies arising from the different backgrounds of the musicians help to create innovative sound experiences and let the pieces appear in an ever new light.
Harmonica player and composer Yotam Ben-Or was born and raised in Nataf, a small village in the Jerusalem area. He started playing the harmonica at the age of 11, taught by his uncle. He moved to New York in 2014 after receiving a full scholarship to study at the New School. Since moving to NYC, Ben-Or and his group have performed at the most prestigious venues and festivals in town such as: Jazz at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. They toured Europe, the Americas and Israel. He has worked and studied with musicians such as Avishai Cohen (bass) and Gregoire Maret (harmonica). “Playing at a level that matches Stevie Wonder himself" (Bass Musician Magazine).
