XJAZZ! is bringing the international series back to life. On 22. - 23. SEPTEMBER we are presenting two acts for two special nights in Opus Jazz Club, Budapest.
22. SEPTEMBER: Studnitzky & Pokaz DUO (DE/UA)
This new duo project of Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Studnitzky and Odesa-based pianist Andrii Pokaz was born in the midst of challenging and life-changing times. The two musicians, whose life situations could not be more different, meet to celebrate the beauty of improvised art together. Both musicians are united by virtuoso and unpretentious playing on their instruments and the ever-curious exploration of different genres such as jazz, classical and electronics. Find tickets HERE!
23. SEPTEMBER: Àbáse Live (HU/DE)
On a quest for global grooves of unity, Àbáse is the imagination of Hungarian producer and keyboardist Szabolcs Bognár. Creating an exquisite blend of jazz, West African, Brazilian, hip-hop and electronic music, he released his debut album ‘Laroyê’ via Oshu Records. The word “àbáse” comes from the West African Yoruba language and stands for “collaboration” – a key element of Àbáse’s music, as he brings together versatile artists from around the world topush genre and style boundaries.
