Kick-Off of the Double Anniversary: Festival Opening
with Tanya Tagaq and Laila Biali
Friday, 17 April at Theater Bremen
The multiple award-winning singer-songwriter and
pianist Laila Biali enthused the
audience already in 2016 at the jazzahead! showcase
festival. The Washington Times has described Biali‘s
musical cosmos as „masterfully mix[ing] jazz and pop,
bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that
are concise and catchy.“ The second act of the evening
is singer Tanya Tagaq. Although her
music is rooted in Inuit throat singing, it has as much
to do with electronica, industrial and metal influences
as it does with traditional culture. She is known for
delivering performances of tremendous urgency and
intensity that are visceral and physical and she always
sings with full physical commitment. Buy your ticket now!

critically acclaimed and popular albums, recorded
numerous songs for film soundtracks (including “Shrek”),
composed two classical operas, written the music for
Robert Wilson’s play “Shakespeare’s Sonnets ” (Berliner
Ensemble) and sung duets with artists such as Sting and
Robbie Williams. Elton John once called Wainwright
“the greatest songwriter on this planet”.
