Alexandrina Simeon: a singer and composer born in beautiful Varna on the verge of the Black Sea, at home between Bulgaria and Germany and living in Augsburg for many years now. In jazz she found the music that her heart desires – as it is honest and pure, it makes the perfect foundation for her cultural roots. With the sound of the first record “roots & influence”, the topclass „Alexandrina Simeon Quintet“ left quite an impression on the audience when performing on various festival and concert stages throughout Germany and Bulgaria. Especially on her latest record „OCEAN TALES“, released by Unit Records in early 2018, she takes the audience back to her home country: The Bulgarian language, melodies and rhythms from former times, the musical legacy of the eastern edge of Europe, skillfully combined with western European jazz and completed with a brilliant guest performance of Benny Brown from Hamburg. Surrounding the powerful Bulgarian vocalist, the band creates true fireworks of melodies and atmospheres – Bulgarian vocal jazz at its best.
