Lîla duo

Stacks Image 219
Lîla duo consists of composers Nadia Marak and Tania Zountsa. They met two years ago through a call from Nadia, who was looking for new musical collaborations. Since then, they often play together in duo form, but also in other line-ups.
The term Lîla comes from Sanskrit and roughly translated means 'divine play'. This (musical) play refers to a spontaneous activity where freedom prevails. In music, we usually refer to this as improvisation. For the duo, with their jazz background, (free) improvisation cannot be missed as a technique and method to create music in the here and now.

Past concerts

    Norma funding Dutch heritage
    Nadia and Tania were granted the Norma starting fund for their Dutch heritage project: playing concerts at fortresses of the New Dutch Waterline. For these concerts, they have put together a repertoire inspired by the fortresses.
    They play their own compositions, various genres of arranged music and improvisations. By using electronics and various wind instruments, they create a soundscape in which a musical journey is made from the past to the future.
