bold, stunning and intimate
Scurdia is oriental folk music, jazz, soul, funk, ethno, Austro and, of course, quite often classical music. Pianist Markus Schirmer, oud virtuoso Risgar Koshnaw from Kurdistan and their fellow musicians abandon rigid boundaries for new perspectives. Their spontaneous improvisation is bold, stunning and intimate and reveals the immense richness of music in a new light. In principle, all the musicians are on a journey, playfully exploring new terrain, until diversity suddenly becomes unity and the seemingly disparate is celebrated as being obviously and delightfully compatible.
