Minimalistic percussion sounds and the spheric trickle of the the oriental zither, the kanun, provide the base for levitating saxophone and trumpet melodies; The German-Turkish outfit LebiDerya from Mannheim aims at building bridges between the cultures – and yet manages to avoid shallow ethno jazz platitudes. LebiDerya carry their listeners away into an acoustic sound oasis, far away from the mayhem of urban living. Their message: The Orient is right here among us – if we only want it to!
