Alexandra Ivanova Trio

"Beauty in Chaos" Single Release

Jazz | Oriental | Afro-Cuban
"Beauty in Chaos" deals with the theme of mourning at a distance – powerful and painful feelings of grief merged with nostalgia and letting go. As an Austrian child to Bulgarian immigrants, Alexandra was born into an uprooted life, meandering, making home in many places, conversations, and hearts of people near and far. Her compositions strive to create a sense of imaginary belonging, uniting faded memories and painting traces of a soul, searching for the missing link to Eastern-ness in the context of a Western upbringing. Together with Niklas Lukassen (b) and Nathan Ott (dr) the trio navigates through jazz, Oriental classical and Afro-Cuban inspirations and invites the listener to look at the world from different points of view: from the East, the West, or from somewhere in between.
At Donau115, the Alexandra Ivanova Trio invites you to celebrate their very first release together and discover their upcoming debut album. The single “Beauty in Chaos” will be out on all platforms on the day after the concert and features a collaboration with French-Syrian vocalist Lynn Adib, blending jazz with traditional Oriental music (Maqam) and religious chants from ancient Syria. The same named debut album will be released in the series “Jazz thing Next Generation” Vol. 99 on Double Moon / Challenge Records this fall.
