Maria Raducanu’s (°1967, Husi) multicultural quintet
consists of top-tier musicians with whom she performs
in Romania as well as across Europe. With German
pianist Nik Meinhold , Swedish guitarist Krister Jonsson,
American bassist Chris Dahlgren, and German drummer
Michael Griener, Raducanu makes Fado, Balkan folk
music, cradle songs, Russian romance, jazz classics,
tangos, and bossa nova flow seamlessly into one another.
The result is an extraordinary feast for the ears, which is
sure to make a lasting impression.
Possessing one of the most distinctive voices in the world, self-taught ethno jazz singer Maria Raducanu makes music that is deeply emotional and universally touching. Noted for her impressive vocal range, as well as for her delightful guitar melodies, Raducanu has been compared to the legendary singer Maria Tanase and she is considered a leading light in new Romanian jazz.
