zeebra libra

zeebra libra

'Berliner Mélange' is the inaugural album from Berlin's Zeebra Libra. Eclectic, light, sophisticated, easy-going, full of warmth and charm... 

Songs old and new, familiar and obscure... Zeebra Libra draws from Tango, Chanson and Eastern European traditions for a repertoire that is varied and enchanting... From rustic to sophisticated, bawdy to meditative; infectious dance rhythms and languid laments are presented simply and authentically - purely acoustic and emotional.

Stillness3 is: Organic, contemplative music created from the calm and energy of the moment, without haste or urgency… a flowing collage of sound, rhythm, colour and texture. This is music to bathe in, to relax and renew the body and spirit – music that speaks to the stillness within us.

Stillness3 is: A jazz trio playing original compositions that draw more from the Ambient and New Age genres: slow, simple, patient, sometimes haunting, mysterious, always relaxing, meditative… in a word, still. This is music by master craftsman, using sparse and poignant brush strokes to create a warm, beautiful and contemplative pallet.

Stillness3 is: Intuitive, meditative, inspired music which breathes and lives in real time. Acoustic instruments played with subtlety and depth; lush, rich soundscapes, drawn from the deep well of instrumental mastery.
