Hamid Drake - Turiya: Honoring Alice Coltrane

Guimaraes Jazz, Guimaraes, Portugal

Festival in Guimaraes, Portugal with among others Archie Shepp, David Murray, Dianne Reeves, and Hamid Drake´s Turiya: Honoring Alice Coltrane:

Website information: Em tempos recentes, tornou-se mais frequente do que no passado ouvirmos diagnósticos de uma crise de espiritualidade no mundo ocidental; hoje, em muitos níveis, essa mesma crise parece, independentemente das causas que lhe possamos atribuir, plenamente instalada e evidente. Ao mesmo tempo, porém, tal como habitualmente acontece em fenómenos desta natureza, assistimos em paralelo nas diversas dimensões do mundo contemporâneo a um contramovimento de retorno a uma procura de significados mais profundos do que os que governam o mundo do não-transcendente. O facto de o legado musical de Alice Coltrane ter permanecido no nosso imaginário coletivo e ser hoje mais admirada e ouvida do que no seu próprio tempo talvez seja um dos sintomas dessa necessidade de reencontro com uma arte aspirante a patamares elevados de consciência. É, por isso, com júbilo que apresentamos nesta edição do Guimarães Jazz o espetáculo “Turiya: Honoring Alice Coltrane”, conceptualizado e liderado pelo notável percussionista e improvisador Hamid Drake, praticante de uma música espiritual em plena sintonia com o espírito da grande harpista norte-americana que, em na ao lado do seu companheiro de vida e de criação artística John Coltrane, contribuiu decisivamente para moldar o jazz nas suas vidas posteriores.

PUNKT

Punkt is an internationally renowned festival started in 2005, curated by Jan Bang and Erik Honoré. In addition to the annual main festival in Kristiansand, Punkt has visited 27 cities in Europe, Canada, China and India with its unique Live Remix concept: All concerts are immediately deconstructed/reconstructed by electronic musicians, often in collaboration with traditional instrumentalists. This electronics-based creativity, unfolding there and then, is a central feature of the festival concept. Among the international participants and guest curators through the years are Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, David Sylvian, Jon Hassell and John Paul Jones.

WITH THESE HANDS

Jan Bang / Ensemble Modern / Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company and Jacopo Godani

With these hands expresses the overall concept: every evening, a new dialogue will take place between music and dance. The musicians from Ensemble Modern and the dancers from the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company will give each other impulses, developing sounds and movements that will be recorded, processed, altered and reintroduced into the creative flow by Norwegian jazz musician and live electronics artist Jan Bang. The result will be a slowly changing stream of movement and music in which sound and dance become inextricably intertwined.

Ensemble Modern is one of the leading ensembles for contemporary music. It brings together approximately 20 soloists whose diverse origins provide the cultural background for the group’s creative efforts.

Jan Bang is a Norwegian musician and record producer. He is a musical innovator and bridge-builder who has repeatedly succeeded in uniting progressive thought with appealing elements of popular culture.
