Fresh buds on old trees with strong roots

RĂ¼diger blends old and new, composition with improvisation, spontaneity with careful planning, in such a natural way that it is almost irrelevant to ask "What type of music is this?" To put it succinctly, RĂ¼diger Oppermann's music is a timeless melting-pot of cultures; or, as he himself put it, "fresh buds on old trees with strong roots".

While listening to the Karawane in the Darmstadt Orangerie, Sam Renseiw meditated on the strong roots of the old trees still with fresh buds on despite the heat-wave, complete with whirling clouds in the sunset.

Would love to hear that trhoat singing but my comp cant play it?
During the jazzfestival in copenhagen I heard a great group from Alaska: PAMYUA (jazz-soul-funk. The group performed also some traditional 'power'songs with a speciel clicking sound - worth listening to.

viewing works best with quicktime installed and firefox as browser. safari works fine also, if you have a mac.
