JAZZ IN THE PARK 2017: Joelle Léandre X 5 [FR/PT/ES]
16 JUL 2017
World première

Joelle Léandre (double bass, voice); Susana Santos Silva (trumpet, flugelhorn); Maria Radich (voice, dance); Maria do Mar (violin); Joana Guerra (cello, voice); Angélica V. Salvi (harp, electronics)

With Feminist Improvising Group and Les Diaboliques, double bass player Joelle Léandre confronted, from the 1970s onwards, male domination in the world of jazz, questioning a certain prevailing tendency towards male chauvinism and misogyny and becoming an icon of women’s lib in music. In this concert she appears as the pivotal element in a Portuguese female band (including a Spanish living in Porto, Angelica V. Salvi), which pays homage to her trajectory of resistance and differentiation. All members share a vast experience in improvisation and some of them have also developed their activity in other musical areas, from contemporary music to rock.
