With "On the Edges 1" the cycle of projects starts out beyond the European cultural sphere, on the opposite side of the Mediterranean Sea, in a cooperation with Moroccan musician, composer, and singer Majid Bekkas. He contributes compositions, ideas and improvisations of his own. With his instruments, the oud and the guembri (bass lute) and elements from the North African Gnawa tradition, the challenge and charm of the project are to make creative use of the tension and differences between different musical cultures. Together with their guest, the ensemble has found different approaches to establishing connections, as well as highlighting the differences and using them to create musical energy and tension. TransEuropeExpress Ensemble: Hans Lüdemann - piano, virtual piano Yves Robert - trombone Alexandra Grimal - soprano & tenor saxophones Silke Eberhard - alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet Regis Huby - violin Ronny Graupe - guitar Sebastien Boisseau - double bass Dejan Terzic - drums, percussion Featuring Majid Bekkas - oud, guembri, voice
