Jorge Degas / Andreas Weiser - "Heimat"
Jorge Degas / Andreas Weiser
Volkslieder deutsch / Brasilien
The German title "Heimat - von fern so nah" could be translated as "Home - far away, so close". This music project shows the new German easiness in living. Brazilian composer, bassist and gitarrist Jorge Degas und German percussionist, composer and author Andreas Weiser together with singers Nina Ernst and Sahrin Rezai present modern interpretations of well selected German folk and literary art songs. With their swinging, mostly brazilian view of old melodies and poetry Degas and Weiser succeeded in reviving almost a almost forgotten tradition.
