12 POINTS – SARAH BUECHI’S THALI, SOIL COLLECTORS & OKO
The next edition of this small but beautifully formed festival takes place in Dublin, 13 – 16 February 2013, when twelve bands will perform over four nights, selected from hundreds of online submissions.
12 Points Festival alternates between Dublin and partner cities (Porto in Portugal was the location for the 2012 edition). With its compact size, it’s a unique opportunity for artists to get to know each other, create lasting friendships and networks, and give their absolute performance best before an enthusiastic local audience, media and industry professionals.
There is no better festival to experience the breadth, energy, ambition and diversity through which young European musicians are making the jazz of tomorrow.
Bring a date on Valentine’s Night, February 14th – 2 tickets for just €20. Available for a limited time only so book now!
Sarah Buechi’s THALi (Geneva)
Sarah Buechi’s THALi have an equilibrium that marries rhythmic treasures of the Indian sub-conteinent with a sophisticated Western approach to artful song based structures.
“This evolving artist is already making inroads in bridging the two traditions, jazz and traditional Indian music, to create an arresting fusion of styles.” – Reels to Ragas, RTE Lyric FM
Soil Collectors (Gothenburg)
Something wild and enchanting is at work here, tapping into Scandinavian choral traditions and an open, uncultivated Mother Earth, as vocalists Isabel Sörling and Hannah Tolf morph effortlessly from intimate Bjork-like delivery into liberating improv.
“A powerful sound that alternates between epic soundscapes, often created in the moment, and gorgeous subtle compositions.” – Tabberaset
Running the gamut from delicately-sculpted, electro-acoustic shapes, to gritty streetwise funk, bassist Shane Latimer is joined by Shane O’Donovan on drums, Darragh O’Kelly on keys and Djackulate dropping beats on the decks.
“Edgy electric jazz.” – The Irish Times
