Supported by one drummer and one guitarist, (either Daru Jones (Jack White), or Justin Tyson (Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spalding] on drums, and Randy Runyon (The Karma Exchange, Bilal]) on guitar, it is hard to believe such a massive sound can be created by a trio. BIGYUKI's extensive vocabulary fuels his unprecedented sound, attracting the attention of many, including Grammy Award-winning and nominated artists such as Q-Tip, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Harvey Mason, Marcus Strickland, Mark Giuliana, and Me'Shell Ndegeocello.
Eleni Karaindrou – “Greece’s most eloquent living composer” in the words of Time magazine – was born in Teichio, a mountain village in central Greece. She still retains vivid memories of the sound world of her childhood: "the music of the wind, rain on the slate roof, running water. The nightingale's singing. And then the silence of the snow." Sometimes the mountains would echo to the sound of flutes and clarinets played at village festivals. “I still have a strong memory of the Byzantine melodies I heard in church and the continuous voices of the men accompanying the chanter," she has said. Resonances of this sound world, imbued with the history and suffering of her native land, have found their way into the many scores she has composed for film, TV and theatre in the past four decades.
