Kuu! Music as theatre, dark and mysterious. Featuring singer/actress Jelena Kuljić and prominent European jazz players Kalle Kalima, Frank Möbus and Christian Lillinger.
KUU! creates a buzz in the Berlin jazz scene with dynamic, precisely executed songs containing sharp commentary on the times we live in. Singer Jelena Kuljić is not only a schooled jazz vocalist, but also a professional actress working with some of Europe’s most prominent ensembles including Berliner Volksbühne and Münchner Kammerspiele.
Her imaginative lyrics and unavoidable performances form a unity with the electric guitars of Kalle Kalima and Frank Möbus (Der Rote Bereich) and the drums of Christian Lillinger (Hyperactive Kid). This music is its own theatre, ‘hectic modern noir’ according to ACT, the label behind the group’s most recent album Lampedusa Lullaby.
Jelena Kuljić: vocals,
Kalle Kalima, Frank Möbus: guitar,
Christian Lillinger: drums
