There are those voices that grab you immediately. Hania Luthufi definitely belongs to them. This exceptional singer from Sri Lanka has explored classical Indian traditions as well as jazz standards à la Billie Holiday and Chet Baker.

For her performance in Wendland, she has brought in two special musicians: the Greek Eleftheria Daoultzi, who plays the Turkish kanun – a kind of Persian harp –, and Ravi Srinivasan, percussionist and composer now living in Berlin, who unpacks his tablas especially for the occasion.
Together, in the special setting of the Damnatz Sculpture Garden, they take us into the world of the Orient, with a selection of world music that combines classical Indian and folk melodies from different regions of Southeast Asia, and reinterprets these melodies with their own aesthetics.

A unique sound picture that holds many stories for the listener. And a little bit Nina Simone and Billie Holiday will also look around the corner.
