Simin Tander

German Afghan vocalist Simin Tander represents a new sound in the European jazz landscape: mysterious, narrative, tenderly beautiful yet also powerful, playful and impulsive. Simin moves her audience with a fascinating voice that knows every possible color, expression and embodies it with an alluring intensity. In the Netherlands, Simin Tander’s talent is no longer a secret. During the last years Simin has become one of the rising stars of the Dutch jazz scene with succesful performances at the North Sea jazz Festival, the Bimhuis, the prestigious Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the 2010 Young VIP tour and her collaboration with Dutch Jazz star Eric Vloeimans. Simin and her Quartet have additionally performed at several international major venues including The Women in Jazz festival (Germany), JazzAhead (Germany), Bohemia Jazz Festival (Czech Republic), Catania Jazz (Italy), Hong Kong Jazz Festival (China) and International Jazzfestival Madrid (Spain). Simin’s debut CD, 'Wagma' (Neuklang Records) received a great deal of attention from both the Dutch and International jazz press. The title to Simin’s Debut CD “Wagma” translates from the Afghan Pashtoe (Simin’s fathers native language) and means “Morning Dew”

Simin Tander: No Looking Back

Read "Simin Tander: No Looking Back" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Simin Tander: Unfading

Read "Unfading" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Simin Tander's evolution has been fascinating to behold since her impressive debut Wagma (Neuklang Records, 2011), which featured pianist Jeroen van Vliet, bassist Cord Heineking and Etienne Nillesen on drums. The German/Afghan singer's whispered gravitas and keening lyricism on jazz-filtered chanson, Latin American balladry and her poetic originals was captivating enough, but her non-syllabic vocal improvisations ...

Trygve Seim: Rumi Songs

Read "Rumi Songs" reviewed by Mark Sullivan


Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim may lack the marquee status of countryman (and fellow ECM artist) Jan Garbarek. But he is no less adventurous, and has recently been popping up all over on 2016 ECM releases: on Mats Eilertsen's Rubicon; with Sinikka Langeland and the Trio Medieval on The Magical Forest; with Iro Haarla and symphony orchestra ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
