“An amazing concert. Experimentation. We are in an urban jungle. We are in a bar. We are on the roof of a building in London. We are on a street, and the music is with us. As long as there are voices like Sascha’s and instruments such as Laurent's, everything will be fine.”
With an unprecedented musical complicity, Sascha Ley and Laurent Payfert invite you to a dreamlike journey through multiple imaginary landscapes, marking a few stops here and there. By creating a captivating dialogue, their music, both delicate and minimalist, at once rhythmic and vigorous, sounds out the possibilities of both their instruments and compositions.
The Gateshead International Jazz Festival describes them as a remarkable duo whose beautifully integrated music breathes fresh life into familiar songs, as well as heading off in bold new directions as Sascha's wordless vocals interweave with Laurent's freely melodic playing. Hypnotic and mesmerizing.
