DENG

Intense, pure and transcendental. Moving between tranquil and haunting soundscapes inspired by the many faces of life and Kurdish poetry. This is the space in which the three musical minds of DENG – the Kurdish word for ‘sound’ – find each other. DENG crosses borders, both literally and musically, with band members coming from Kurdistan, Sweden and the Netherlands. Their influences range from jazz to folk and world music. A unique combination of instruments, free improvisation and microtonal singing make up for a surprising and emotional experience. Listen, contemplate and let your mind wander…

 

Avin Omer – vocals

Johan Ekeberg – guitar

Armand van Wijck – chromatic harmonica, willow flute
