Tamara Lukasheva


“Really impressive, pure and expressive”
— Django Bates


 “Although her three-octave pitch range and skillful variation of scats are overwhelming as ever, dignified quietness is added to this time”
— Jazz Tokio


…open-minded and curious, she walks around the world, using the music as a mother language, capturing impressions, encounters and translating them in her own musical reality.

She writes a large part of her pieces herself, has captivating melodic ideas, interprets her own lyrics in an insistent and alienating way. In short: There is practically no type of advanced, creative and improvised stage music in which she is not at home in an extraordinarily confident manner.”

Excerpt from the reasoning of the jury of the Horst and Gretl Will scholarship for their decision for the award winner Tamara Lukasheva.
