Elina Duni Quartet

| Switzerland / Albania

Elina Duni is one of the most captivating voices in the global jazz scene. Being a jazz and classically-trained singer she has started to explore her Albanian roots of Balkan folk songs.

The Tirana-born and Swiss-raised singer has become an exceptional musical storyteller embodying the songs’ narratives, in a way that transcends genre definitions and language limitations. Along with her quartet (including the great pianist Colin Vallon), she plays a melancholic music of extraordinary passion and emotion.

The Elina Duni quartet just released its second album for the reference Munich- based Label ECM. On Dallёndyshe (“The Swallow”), Elina Duni sings songs of love and exile. The troubled history of the Balkan regions has inspired many such songs and the pieces here, primarily from Albanian traditional sources, are interpreted with intensity and insight by Elina and her band.

This music is clearly more than just a hybrid of ‘jazz’ and ‘folk’. In its sense of drive, Dallёndyshe opens up a different groove, a different momentum. It’s become more rhythmic. Sometimes it´s almost a trance-like propulsion.

Like The Guardian pointed out "This quartet definitely sound like rising star material for ECM.”

current album: Dallendyshe (ECM Records 2015)
