A Jazz Music Program by the "Boriana Quartett" a Popular Jazz group from Germany. Jazz Revival is one of the many cultural events of the ongoing "Year of Germany" in India (Oct 2011 to Oct 2012). This Program is arranged in association with Max Muller Bhavan, Chennai and Unwind Centre Chennai.
The Boriana Quartett from Hamburg, Germany was founded in 2007 by Ms.Boriana Dimitrova. She is of Bulgarian origin, presently settled in Germany. The Quartet plays compositions by Boriana Dimitrova, combining and confronting contemporary jazz with elements of Bulgarian musical traditions. The other band members pick up on this musical tension and channel it into virtuoso improvisations. Elements from the classic jazz compositions are skillfully mixed up, together with parts from the Bulgarian national floklore - typical chords, uneven beats and measures.
