Cyminology - As Ney

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar

- ECM debut for a young band already making waves internationally.

- Cyminology proposes a unique intercultural chamber jazz, by turns poetic, sensual, melancholic, dynamic and pulsating.

- Based in Berlin the band features a singer of Iranian descent, an Indian drummer, a French-born pianist and a German bassist.

- Leader Cymin Samawatie is not only a charismatic frontwoman but also the author of most of the band's material. She writes texts in Farsi (Persian) and sets them to her own music, often developed through improvising.

- As well as her own lyrics, Cymin also sings classic Sufi texts from Rumi and Hafez, masters of Persian poetry, and 20th verse of Iranian proto-feminist Farough Farrokhzãd.

- The sound and melody of the language itself establishes a direction and atmosphere, creatively explored by the musicians.

- Also contributing material is Benedikt Jahnel, increasingly acknowledged as one of the outstanding German pianists of his generation.

- Album produced by Manfred Eicher at Oslo's Rainbow Studio.

- The band has won a number of German jazz prizes. They are twice winners of the Berlin Jazz & Blues Award (2004, 2006). They also won the New Generation prize (2003) and the Möbus Jazz Award (2004), and were recipients of the Stipendium of the Berlin Senate in 2007.

Group background
Cyminology was founded in Berlin in 2002. Cymin Samawatie, Benedikt Jahnel and Ralf Schwarz have been in the line-up from the beginning. Drummer Ketan Bhatti joined the group in 2004. Prior to "As Ney" the group released three albums: "Get Strong" (2002), "Per Se" (2005), "Bemun" (2007). Eager to play, the group has clocked up thousands of road miles with concerts around the world. Their itinerary in the last year alone has taken them across the USA, and to Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, the Sudan, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates. In Germany they are a popular presence on the club and festival circuit. Singer Cymin Samawatie was born in Braunschweig in 1976, but during childhood spent part of each year in Iran. She studied singing, piano and drums in Hannover, and jazz vocal in Berlin where her teachers included David Friedman and Jerry Granelli. Early recognition of her talents came in 2003 when Bobby McFerrin called her on stage to sing with him at the Braunschweig Festival. Pianist Benedikt Jahnel, born 1980, grew up near Munich, moving to Berlin in 2000. His teachers have included John Taylor, Richie Beirach and Kenny Werner. He has toured with leading international musicians including Charlie Mariano and Phikl Woods, and is active with three other bands, all highly regarded by the critics - his own Benedikt Jahnel Trio, max.bab, and the Kaktus Sextett. Bassist Ralf Schwarz, born in 1971, grew up in Braunschweig, and played organ and guitar before switching to double-bass and electric bass a decade ago. Through lessons and workshops with jazz masters like Ron Carter, Steve Coleman, Mark Dresser, Mark Helias, Richie Beirach and Billy Hart he has had the opportunity to refine and develop his skills. Percussionist Ketan Bhatti, born in New Delhi, India in 1981, grew up in Bielefeld. Playing piano from the age of 7, and touring as a drummer since he was 14 he has been active in projects from reggae and hip-hop to jazz as both musician and producer. Ketan recently produced music for Nuran Callis' play „Home Stories" at the Schauspiel Essen and for Schillers „Die Räuber" at the Volkstheater in Vienna.
