Erna Rot & Band

City: Arnstadt

04/30
The Prinzenhofkeller venue will host a concert by vocalist and composer Erna Rot and her band. "Erna Rot ist gebürtige Berlinerin und lebt als Sängerin, Komponistin & Autorin in Köln. Sie hat Jazzgesang u.a. bei Efrat Alony, Lisa Bassenge , Fay Claassen und Anne Hartkamp studiert. Als Erna Rot hat sie sich auf die Suche nach ihren musikalischen Wurzeln gemacht. Im Koffer immer dabei der Jazz. Dabei ging sie durch fremde Zeiten, in die Hinterhoftheater der goldenen 20ern, weiter in ihre Kindheit Ostberlins, über Prag bis nach Memphis, um die amerikanische Mentalität zu entdecken, die Musik mehr zu verstehen, um schließlich im Hier und Jetzt zurückzukehren. Dabei entstanden sind Geschichten über das Leben mit all seinen Facetten und Schönheiten. Erna Rot singt auf Deutsch – ohne Schnörkel, unverblümt mit einfacher Sprache, aber manchmal erschreckendem Tiefgang. Über Scharlatane, Wichtigtuer, Nörgeljane und Miesepeter. Frech, rotzig, ironisch und durchaus etwas böse. Musikalisch ist Jazz ihr Boden, den sie zusammen mit ihrer Band bestehend aus Simon Doetsch, Peter Kowal, Stefan Rey und Felix Günther bunt mit den Charakteren des französischen Chansons, Big Band Swing, Bossa Nova, Blues und Avantgarde-Pop nach Lust und Laune bemalt. Aber vor allem ist es Musik, vor allem ist sie authentisch und vor allem ist sie Erna! Ihr Debutalbum erschien Ende 2015 und wurde von Rundfunk und Presse sehr gut aufgenommen und besprochen. Neben der Erna_Presse_Band_kleinMusik schreibt sie unter ihrem bürgerlichen Namen Drehbücher für Spielfilme, ist Autorin im Dokumentarbereich und Studentin"

MARCO DURÁN (REVIEWS) 'Marco Durán is an innovator and a creative guitar player... One of the best i heard in Mexico!!!' LARRY CARLTON 'Marco Duran album, “Al Otro Lado”, can be the most outstanding phenomenon of Mexican Jazz in a good time, besides of being a significant contribution to the world history of jazz guitar' EL ECONOMISTA 'It is important to remember, from time to time, that the quantity of sounds that can be extracted from a musical instrument, is inexhaustible. That is what Marco Duran does with his acoustic guitar; accompanied by Aaron Cruz on the double bass, on “Al Otro Lado”. It includes ten themes, oscillating between contemporary music and jazz. The album keeps a high quality.' MILENIO 'His debut album is just splendid and it’s about something simple and thankful: listen the guitar, its audible skin semi-covered by a good bass, letting his depth become the owner of our ears. Simple and complicate. That’s why this album is worth it.' LA REVISTA 'Marco Durán is a complete musician who performs his work, not only as an excellent guitar player, but also, as a very refined and mature composer...' EUGENIO TOUSSAINT"
