Tamara Lukasheva


"As a singer, she has an intensely developed repertoire of sounds, noises, ways of articulation between classic jazz singing and dadaistically pointed vocal art…


…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.
