Elina Duni at Cairo Jazz FestivalEgypt
November 19, 2020
Women In Jazz | Vocal Master Class
We are pleased to have Swiss singer, songwriter and composer Elina Duni for the second time in the Arab region. Duni will be participating in Cairo Jazz Festival with a vocal masterclass and two concerts where she will be presenting her project ” Songs of Love & Exile” in November 2020.
Elina Duni is joined by guitarist and BBC New Generation Artist Rob Luft, one of the rising stars of London’s flourishing contemporary jazz scene. Luft’s playing incorporates echoes of West African high-life, Celtic folk and textural minimalism. His joyously original sound finds an ideal counterpart in Elina Duni’s vocals. Together, they take us on a journey through timeless folk songs which still resonate so truly today, as well as playing their co-written original material about contemporary issues facing us all.
On this occasion, the duo invites multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas to complete the line-up on piano and drums. His distinctive combination of tonal richness and delicacy adds a subtle colour to the project.
