Baraná & co • Live at the Music Meeting 2002 »
Total time: 60:16
Recorded: nov. 2003
Live recording of the legendary debut concert at the Music Meeting 2002 in Nijmegen, Netherlands. Texts of the Turkish Humanist-poet Yunus Emre inspire a voyage through Turkish traditional scales, exciting rhythms, witty improvisations and sounds of contemporary music.
'The more often you hear the concert, the more you get the feeling you missed a big adventure.' (Deventer Dagblad)
'Where many cross-over projects fail by sticking to a succession of styles, Baraná & Co succeeds impressively. The secret lies in strong compositions and clever arrangements, but above all in the affinity to one another's music. Baraná & Co is the result of a friendship between the Turkish singer and saz-player Behsat Üvez and the Dutch clarinet player Steven Kamperman. Their friendship has truly inspired all of the nine co-operating musicians.' (De Volkskrant)
'Excellent music! (JazzReview.com)
