Brigitte Beraha’s Lucid Dreamers - Blink Tour
Nominee for The Ivors Composer Awards 2021, Best Vocalist 2021 Parliamentary Jazz Awards & 2017 British Jazz Awards, Brigitte Beraha’s early incarnation of ‘Lucid Dreamers’ premiered at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall as a trio with George Crowley (Melt Yourself Down, Yazz Ahmed) and Tim Giles (Nostalgia 77, Iain Ballamy) in November 2019 as part of the London Jazz Festival, with music written by Brigitte (Kenny Wheeler, London Jazz Orchestra), inspired by the industrial world that we live in. Now extended to a quartet with Alcyona Mick (Natacha Atlas, Robin Finker), they released their debut album ‘Lucid Dreamers’ on Let Me Out Records in July 2020. This concert, part of a UK/ European tour, celebrates the release of their two albums to date, with their latest ‘Blink’ released on 20th May 2022. The original music – with or without lyrics – is both melodic and abstract. It draws from the jazz, folk, contemporary classical, free improv and electronic worlds, with atmospheric and open improvisations, exciting grooves and impactful stillness.
