GANNA GRYNIVA (Berlin/Kyiv) | TASIYA & SAMMY LUKAS (Berlin)
Fr 11.11. 20:00 Uhr
In her solo performance with loops and effects, GANNA GRYNIVA combines the authenticity and traditions of Ukrainian singing with contemporary composition. Everything starts with a simple melody embedded in a space full of unexpected harmonies, rhythms and atmospheres: live and all alone with the voice.
TASIYA & SAMMY LUKAS Duo presents contemporary compositions and arrangements of old traditional Ukrainian folk music, which mix with rhythmically and harmonically complex jazz and improvisations to create fascinating worlds of sound.

“It is an unusual year for #PANDAwomen. This is our fifth festival — and the first one under full-scale war conditions. We have a special lineup and decided to dedicate the entire festival to Ukrainian artists as the symbol of strength, courage, and great love, which are able to fight and win.
Ukrainian culture is unique and now it is experiencing a period of new recognition in Europe. Everyone has their own weapon, and our weapon is music.”
