BULGARIA/GERMANY: Alexandrina Simeon - Quintett Ocean Tales (2018)

The compositions on the latest record OCEAN TALES, released by Unit Records in early 2018, take the audience back to Alexandrina Simeon’s home country: The Bulgarian language, melodies and rhythms from former times, the musical legacy of the eastern edge of Europe, skillfully combined with western European jazz and completed with a brilliant guest performance of Benny Brown from Hamburg. Surrounding the powerful Bulgarian vocalist, the band creates true fireworks of melodies and atmospheres – Bulgarian vocal jazz at its best.
