Orient meets Jazz!

WDR recording

The Transorient Orchestra, the soundtrack of the Ruhr region, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. To mark the occasion, two orchestras are presenting a joint concert, both of which have been honoured for their many years of pioneering work: The NRW Youth Jazz Orchestra received the WDR Jazz Prize in the "Young Jazz Artists" category and the Transorient Orchestra in the "Music Cultures" category.

This collaboration, which was realised for the first time in 2017, brings together western big band jazz and Middle Eastern and Oriental music. The best up-and-coming jazz musicians in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia meet musicians from different cultural backgrounds from the greater Ruhr area. They have their roots in Turkey, Iran, Tunisia, Syria and Germany.

The line-up includes western instruments as well as oriental ones; they sing in Arabic and Turkish. Pieces from the repertoire of the Transorient Orchestra were arranged for both formations by the artistic management team of the NRW Youth Jazz Orchestra.
