A.Spell’s line-up is intriguing: Nadja Stoller’s recent solo project ‚Alchemy’ was exceptionally well recieved with sensational reviews. Nadja belongs to a new generation of singers – confident, independent and never lost for ideas.
Jan Galega Brönnimann has been on the scene for years and known for his innovative and cutting edge collaborations. As a composer and instrumentalist he has worked with the likes of: Nils Petter Molvaer, Sidsel Endresen, Pierre Favre, Saadet Türköz, Eddie Floyd, Round Table Knights and Kenny Werner. He is best known as a frontman with his own band, Brink Man Ship.
Ronan Skillen has been exploring a fusion of tabla, percussion and didgeridoo by means of a hybrid percussion kit which he designed. This demonstrates a rich textural variety and a unique versatility which he uses in musical genres across the board. Recent collaborations include Babu, Tonik, Johnny Clegg, Freshlyground, Hot Water and Rodriguez.
Three strong musical personalities with a common thread come together and manifest in an unmistakeable sound landscape. At times soft, then loud and disorientating yet never without focus and rather, mindaltering.
