"...... Shades Of The World is an international musical project that was born because of the need to know the music of various cultures and the deepest parts of the human consciousness. It is a journey through the world of improvisation and a jazz maze with a precious stone held close to the heart. A stone that day by day raised every nation" – tells the leader of In albedo Ieva Baranauskaité.
The Shades Of the World
is the project that combines folk and traditional music of various countries all around
the world, jazz and improvisation. A musical collaboration that started in 2015, while
Lithuanian musicians were staying at the Rhine-Ruhr, successfully continued the long
lasting partnership of twin cities Vilnius and Duisburg. Under the wing of German artist
and manager Rüdiger Eichholtz the mutual effort of Lithuanian and German musicians
commenced in a local art gallery/concert hall Lokal Harmonie. The collaboration
instantly captivated the art lovers of Duisburg.
'In this age of alienation it gets hard to understand eachother, other nations and
different customs. Perhaps now the language is not enough to communicate? Maybe
now we can only look deeply into eachother's heart, water the roots while feeling
eachother's pulse and listen with our eyes closed? Can you hear it? The old melody
that comes through an opened window, the melody that tells the legend of China.
Here comes the wind that is hardly felt, the wind that comes from a pleaded robe, the
robe worn by a dervish who keeps on spinning while being in harmony with the
sounds. The bang that made you flinch is a lively dance filled with movements and the
roister that happens in the heart of Africa.
