"Another great cd from the brilliant vocalist Sascha Ley and her wonderful musician collaborators." Shelley Hirsch, performer, vocalist, poet NY

 

"Axis Mundi is more than a mere musical reflection. Whether progressive or experimental, cosmic or Avant-Garde Jazz, this music mingles with Sascha Ley’s vocal performance, at times both sensual and raw, pure and alluring. It is not an easy trip, but the reward is all the more beautiful." Jacques Prouvost, jazz journalist and blogger BE

Voice & Double Bass

SASCHA LEY & LAURENT PAYFERT explore the subtle art of combining vocals and double bass. The Luxembourg-based vocalist, improviser, actress and poet and her congenial fellow musician from France blend free improvisation, written and instant compositions and familiar sonorities. Surreal and suggestive soundscapes, experiments, sound painting, the use of extended vocal and instrumental techniques as well as storytelling take the audience to an always surprising, inviting and spirited experience off the beaten track.

“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.”
