Zahir

Zahir

(Lucía Boffo – vocals, effects, Danielle Friedman – piano, Lisa Hoppe – double bass)

In the longest year they can remember, the three musicians of Zahir stumbled across each other in Berlin: Argentinian vocalist Lucía Boffo, Israeli born pianist Danielle Friedman and German bassist Lisa Hoppe, who had just returned to her native country. 

Embracing their multiple belongings and interconnections with each other, they developed tenderly improvised, bold and humorous original music, rooted in jazz and spinning freely wherever their associations would take them. You will hear songs, based on poetry by thinkers long gone, on overheard puns and about very serious wishes.
