Afghan singer Elaha Soroor and award-winning music/producer duo Kefaya, Al MacSween & Giuliano Modarelli have joined forces for a mighty and mesmerizing new album, Songs Of Our Mothers; a fresh, vibrant take on Afghan folk music filtered through myriad forms, from spiritual jazz and dub to Indian classical music and electronica. The album is a collection of folk songs traditionally performed by Afghan women, drawing on Elaha’s own experience of fleeing Afghanistan and the struggle faced by many other female artists. After their concert at ALICE last year, we’re looking forward to having Kefaya back when they perform with Elaha Soroor. The concert is a part of Vinterjazz 2020.
The nationwide Vinterjazz festival celebrates its 20th anniversary across 120 venues all over Denmark on February 6-29, 2020. Read more and see full program at www.jazz.dk
