KUU! creates a buzz in the Berlin jazz scene with dynamic, precisely executed songs containing sharp commentary on the times we live in. Singer Jelena Kuljić is not only a schooled jazz vocalist, but also a professional actress working with some of Europe's most prominent ensembles including Berliner Volksbühne and Münchner Kammerspiele. Her imaginative lyrics and umissable performances form a unity with the electric guitars of Kalle Kalima and Frank Möbus and the drums of Christian Lillinger (Hyperactive Kid). This music is its own theatre, 'hectic modern noir' according to ACT, the label behind the group's most recent album Lampedusa Lullaby.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
