SONGS FROM PERSIA, AZERBAIJAN AND TURKEY: SANAZ & FRIENDS

Description

Sanaz: voice, Benjamin Stein: santoor, tar, baglama and oud
Steffen Thormählen: Percussion, Uwe Böttcher: double bass, violin and viola

Sanaz's songs and poems really get under your skin. They are about longing: for love, freedom and for self-determination. Sometimes with a gentle, sometimes with a strong voice, but always impressive, always provocative, the poet and singer recites her mystical texts. Further she also sets these texts to music and performs them together with her repertoire of Turkish and Azerbaijani folk songs.
Sanaz comes from the Azerbaijani territory of Iran. The silencing of all female voices and the threat of reprisals against a critical, creative woman caused her to leave her home country in 2008 and move to Germany in 2010, after two years spent in Istanbul.
She began her musical career in 2012 with the music group "Mah-e Manouche", which won the sponsorship award of the cultural department of the town of Wuppertal in 2017/18.
Encouraged by the immensely positive feedback and praise of many fellow artists, musicians and critics she started a new project in 2019, in which she recites her own texts in Persian and German and sings songs from Persia, Azerbaijan and Turkey.
She is accompanied by an illustrious ensemble of outstanding musicians: Benjamin Stein on oud, baglama, santoor and tar, by Uwe Böttcher on double bass, violin and viola and by Steffen Thormählen on various percussion instruments.
