Mondo Chôro

Three musicians coming from different nationalities and musical backgrounds meet at their common point: playing Chôro.

Chôro [in Portuguese: to cry] is the traditional music of Brazil, being the reflection and expression of the blend between African and European music and culture in the beginning of the 20th century.

It’s characterized by the rich and touching musical language, expressing brightness, dramatism, playfulness, sadness or nostalgia.

The variety of rhythms and tempos, the beauty of melodies and of the interpretation, the depth of emotions and the richness of details are constantly interacting.

Everyday Feelings

Conversations between two persons during a worldwide pandemic, moments that got lost in lockdowns and fear of sickness. Encounters, that this unique situation created, reflections on our very own feelings:
The Duo between Saxophone and Drums is trying to bring all this to your ears.

Alexander Scott – Sax
Martina Gunkel- Tanz
Carl Zinsius – Drums
Texte: Anais Pasanau Miró (Hug/Kiosk),
Thea Zinsius (Lieferbote/Curfew Thoughts)

Kiosk

„The highest flag I hang
will be that of memory.
The most vivid memory
will be the imaginary.“

The hug

„White footprints
mark the journey
that will become later than desired.
It’ll be when tears sprout in a hug,
feeling the other’s warmth,
noticing your own expansion.“

Der Lieferbote

„Nach tausend Türen und missgünstig gepflasterten Stunden,
dem Feierabend entgegen strebend, stolpere ich einem Menschen ins Leben.
Ich schenke Floskeln, er offenbart seinen Überdruss.
Und plötzlich bin ich rundherum.
Ich erde wieder.
Und erkenne, dass er auf meinen Worten schweben wird.“

Und plötzlich bin ich rundherum.

Und erkenne, dass er auf meinen Worten schweben wird.“
