With colourful, dreamy music in an unusual formation, There, the debut album by Nina Rompa (voice), Gijs Idema (guitar) and Mo van der Does (clarinet), portrays compositions rooted in Jazz, with influences from modern and classical music.
There describes a place.
A place where you dare to fly higher and higher, dive deeper and deeper.
There’s space. On the way there’s storm, doubt and sometimes you fall.
Yet there is harmony and clarity.
Gijs Idema and Nina Rompa played in a duo for many years and started composing and arranging together. For this album, they started searching further. They searched for color and a story to tell, with a beginning and an end. It provided pieces that are sometimes transparently, sometimes ambiguously connected to each other. In their search, they also found an addition, and with Mo van der Does on the clarinet their sound was complete.
”Beautiful, melancholic music. Nina’s voice is layered and warm, and at the same time, you’ll feel a moving lightness and clarity. Recalling something ancient and deep, while maintaining a contemporary feel.” – Mijke Loeven, Director BIMHUIS
