Zohar's Nigun is composed of four gents who not only ply their instruments in a rather unique exposition of traditional and modern modes but who also explore the ethnic and cultural wherewithal which, in this case, generated the Jewish/Yiddish tradition. The Four Questons is in fact the most progressive application of distinctly Yiddish style I've ever heard, yet, while spinning the ancient mode out to its farthest reaches, they also manage to preserve its essence and, in doing so, pay lavish tribute to the genius underlying.' - Mark S. Tucker – FAME review
Berlin-based violinist and composer-producer Daniel Weltlinger presents his critically acclaimed new album release 'Szolnok' along with Zohar's Nigun (Daniel Pliner - piano, Simon Milman - bass, Robbie Avenaim - drums/percussion). Szolnok - released on the 3rd of May, 2019 on DMG Germany and Rectify Records - tells the story of Weltlinger’s violin from Szolnok that he inherited from his Hungarian born grandfather, who had carried this instrument with him when he walked between 1920-1922 by foot from Hungary to France. The violin survived being carried to the far reaches of the globe, and was brought back to Europe in late 2017 after some 75 years absence from the continent. This highly unusual and deeply personal album, recorded at Blackbird Studios in Berlin, mixes elements of jazz, free improvisation, Classical and folk influences, as well as songs Weltlinger’s grandfather performed on the violin. The album follows the historical line of this instrument itself and it's whereabouts until the present day, and represents a story about time, continuity and most importantly about moving forward.
Widely acclaimed for his distinctive warm sound and innovations within the genres of Gypsy-swing, jazz, Yiddish-klezmer and experimental/free-improvised music, Daniel Weltlinger has performed and recorded in Australia, Europe, China, Morocco, Turkey, the US and Israel, and regularly collaborates with many renowned artists and ensembles including German-Sinti guitarist and composer Lulo Reinhardt along with members of the Reinhardt family based in Koblenz/Rheinland Pfalz, Berlin based Yiddish singer/actor Karsten Troyke, the multi-ARIA Award-winning Gyp-rock band Monsieur Camembert and the Turkish-Classical Ensemble Olivinn amongst many others. He runs the independent record label Rectify Records, which produced the album ‘Koblenz’ nominated as amongst one of the best albums of 2015 in Downbeat Magazine, which also produced the widely acclaimed album 'The Four Questions' by Zohar's Nigun released in 2012. Zohar's Nigun is an experimental-chamber-jazz project that explores the very essence of the complicated and fractured nature behind what shapes identity in the 21st Century using the analogy of four musicians of Jewish heritage who mix both original and traditional music to explore these concepts. Shalom!
