Elina Duni is a Swiss-Albanian singer. Having been signed to ECM Records since 2012, her hallmark combination of traditional Albanian folk songs and jazz has lead to worldwide critical acclaim. For this latest project, she is joined by guitarist & BBC New Generation Artist Rob Luft, acclaimed as one of the rising stars of London’s flourishing contemporary jazz scene. Luft’s playing incorporates echoes of West African high-life, Celtic folk and textural minimalism, and his joyously original sound finds an ideal counterpart in Elina Duni’s vocals. Together with special guest Fred Thomas, who joins them on piano, percussion & banjo, they steer us on a journey through timeless folk songs which still resonate so truly today.

Line-up:

Elina Duni – voice
Rob Luft – electric guitar
Fred Thomas – piano, banjo, drum kit”
