Immortal Onion are a young up & coming trio founded in 2016 in Poland. Having won the „Jazz phonographic debut” competition, as well as a City of Gdansk Culture Scholarship, the group released their first album “Ocelot of Salvation” on Requiem Records in July 2017 and had its premiere at the Warsaw Summer Jazz Days festival.
Immortal Onion take their inspiration from the music of Esbjörn Svensson, Hiromi Uehara and Tigran Hamasyan. In terms of genre, Immortal Onion offer a bold combination of many seemingly remote styles – jazz, film music, minimalism as well as fusion, electronic music and even progressive metal. The unique sound of the group originates from the stylistic variety, and skilful combination of rhythmically complex, energetic riffs with minimalistic, trans beats and lyrical themes.
The Voicingers On Tour festival organizes workshops conducted by active European Jazz musicians with teaching experience. They are intended for both vocalists and instrumentalists, and for both for amateurs and students of music schools and conservatories. The aim of this workshop is to deepen contact with their own musicality.
Participants work in one or two groups – children (aged 7-15) or adolescents with adults (15 years old and up), and are held simultaneously. As part of the workshop there will be singing in groups and playing ethnic percussion instruments. Each participant will have the opportunity to play or sing accompanied by drums, bass and guitar. The series of workshops will end with a day of rehearsals for the final concerts. Three days after classes students will have the opportunity to play with lecturers during a club evening.
