Hypnotic, part acoustic and part electronic songs full of Turkish longing, Brazilian melancholy and Persian wisdom, by singer Sanem Kalfa and viola player George Dumitriu. This Turkish vocalist and Rumanian violist are both living in The Netherlands.
The duo is known for its intense performances. In 2010 Sanem Kalfa won the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition, when the jury was led by Quincy Jones. George Dumitriu, ‘sorcerer’ of the viola (Eddy Determeyer in Draai om je oren) plays in various ensembles in the fields of improv/jazz and contemporary classical. Their most recent album DANCE was inspired by Sufi poet Rumi.
