Natalia Kordiak: Ytinamuh

17th March 2023

The premiere concert of the new album Ytinamuh from singer, improviser, composer Natalia Kordiak will take place on March 17, 2023 during the Jazz Jantar Festival at Klub Żak in Gdańsk.

The cycle "Ytinamuh" (Humanity) consists of six pieces connected by open improvisations of musicians in various configurations. Instead of trying to describe the music from the album, I would just like to say that I like to think of it as a story in which what is written in the score intertwines with the madness of improvisation, and sometimes as a way, sometimes safe and orderly, sometimes risky and dangerous, but always beginning and ending with a deep breath. Natalia Kordiak

Natalia has been nominated for the "FRYDERYK 2020" award of the Polish Phonographic Academy in the PHONOGRAPHIC DEBUT OF THE YEAR - JAZZ category. Leader of her own band, who she has been working since 2019 (Natalia Kordiak Quintet "Bajka", Hevhetia, 2019) and co-founder of the TANŌK band, which she co-created with the Ukrainian jazz pianist Kateryna Ziabliuk. In music, she values ​​the authenticity of dialogue, being present and creating a space where the line between reason and madness blurs, and reality becomes an abstraction.
