Up and coming German jazz violinist Johanna Burnheart returns to SpiceJazz Soho with her band to perform her newly released debut album "Burnheart".
Burnheart is an experimental electronic modal jazz project, rooted in traditional jazz infused with techno grooves and modal harmony.
Originally from Berlin, Johanna draws inspiration from early modal jazz pioneers such as Eberhard Weber and Zbigniew Seifert as well as the current German techno scene.
After a promising start of this year at the Jazz Café in Camden as one of the jazz re:freshed picks for "Sounds of 2020", the band has been concentrating on the release during this challenging summer. After the record release with Ropeadope Records on October 30th 2020, this will be a reunion of the band for a special London jazz festival performance.
Burnheart is formed of fellow Guildhall graduates:
Line-up: Johanna Burnheart - violin/vocals & featuring Jonny Mansfield -vibes
