About the Event
Germany's most successful jazz singer, Lyambiko, is an all‐rounder who enjoys the classic jazz ballad just as much as many a pop hit.
In her popular Christmas programme, she has compiled her favourite songs into a tasteful acoustic programme. With the greatest Christmas songs, sensitively and tastefully reduced to the essential sounds of piano, guitar, cello and double bass, the singer enchants her audience. Thus, 'Driving Home for Christmas' (Chris Rea), 'Last Christmas' (George Michael), or Mariah Carey's super hit 'Santa Clause is Coming to Town' become intimate and sound‐painting ballads. The sound of this concert is reminiscent of Sting or Simon & Garfunkel — but not without the necessary pinch of jazz, as in Lyambiko's versions of Ella Fitzgerald's Christmas hits 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' or 'Christmas Song' and classics like 'White Christmas' (Bing Crosby), 'The First Noel' or 'Silent Night'. The perfect Advent mood to dream and hum along to.
