JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
CONCERT IS CANCELLED
Juna is a band from Kazan, capital of the republic of Tatarstan in Russia, that performs atmospheric indie-folk in Tatar language. Juna’s Emanet is the first full-format album based on the Tatar poetry of the 20th and 21st centuries: Robert Akhmetzhanov, Elmira Sharifullina, Luiza Yansuar, Yoldiz Minnulina, Azat Mirgayazov and others. All of it is about the deep motions of the human soul in constant touch with Nature. The references are easily recognizable: neo-folk, Marissa Nadler, CocoRosie, but it doesn’t feel like a copy of anything in the West, more like a thoughtful re-approach and adaption for the local environment. “I don’t understand Tatar, but there is an obvious skill in using the language phonetically here. If the lyrics come from Tukai (classic Tatar poet), then it’s even better: it’s not just some lyrics in their native language, but an actual poetical tradition being reapproached” – Alexander Gorbachev for “Inde” magazine.
