Simin Tander Quartet Short Info

Simin Tander Quartet (NL / GE / AFG)
Where Water Travels Home

"Simin Tander is a polyglot German-Afghan singer who combines the fierce creativity of Meredith Monk with the jazz savvy of Gretchen Parlato."
All About Jazz (USA)

She is one of the most amazing personalities in young European jazz. With her enchantingly tender and equally expressive, masterful voice Simin Tander builds bridges between occidental jazz and arabesque-like vocal flights, between song-writing experiment, chanson and intimate ballad. Along with her Dutch quartet, the German-Afghan singer (based in the Netherlands) draws a fascinating route to her Mid-Eastern heritage and into the depths of her soul in her second CD "Where Water Travels Home".

In the past few years Simin has become one of the rising stars of the Dutch and German jazz scene.
Her performances at the North Sea Jazz Festival, the BIMHUIS, the prestigious Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Jazzmeeting, Women In Jazz Fesitval, Halle, JAZZAHEAD, Bremen and lately at the Leipziger Jazztage at the Opera House.

Beside the Netherlands and Germany Simin is developing an internationally recognized reputation with performances at the Bohemia Jazz Fest (Czech Republic), Catania Jazz Festival (Italy), Madrid Jazz Festival (Spain), OCT LOFT Festival (China), Hong Kong Jazz Festival, the Jarasum Jazzfestival (South Korea), Jazz en la costa, Almunecar (Spain), Lagny Jazzfestival (FR) and many more.
