Attending to a live concert with the drummer and percussionist Bodek Janke and his band „global.dance.kulture“ is similar to a journey around different cultures of our planet.
Music ist the universal language. In all music traditions there are rhythms and melodies entertaining, bringing people together and making them happy.
Inspired by several (worldwide) travels, New York-based Bodek Janke creates an extraordinary kind of stage performance: His compositions include musical elements from India, Africa, the Far East, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Balkan regions and African-American jazz traditions.
Their common element is a pulsating improvisation, which is always core and foundation of the live show.
Within a concert the band plays live interludes between the pieces – just like a DJ in a dance club. Finally you can dance to a jazz concert again! Sometimes to the sound of a didgeridoo and grand piano, sometimes to the groove of a tuba and cello. But certainly you’ll be kicked and moved by a breathtaking variety of percussion instruments from all over the world.
