ELDA TRIO: Emilia Mårtensson, Janez Dovč & Adriano Adewale presenting the New Album - JAZZ at Barbican Centre (London Jazz Festival)

Saturday, November 19, 2016
Barbican Centre (London Jazz Festival)

ELDA is a new trio comprised of Swedish vocalist Emilia Mårtensson, recent winner of Vocalist of the Year at the Parlimentary Jazz Awards 2016, Slovenian accordian player Janez Dovč and Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale, which started as a commission from the EFG London Jazz Festival.

In their attempt to weave together their three different folkloric cultures the ensemble has explored the breadth and depth of approach to storytelling and music from each country. What emerges is a fascinating tapestry of musical cultures, with one foot in tradition and the other firmly in the future. This concert celebrates the release of their debut album on Two Rivers Records.
