Summer MidWeek MONO: Laia Escartin

Aug 2022

Come enjoy the Try out of MidWeek Mono this Summer at Jazzcafé Dizzy, where a fine selection of solists are invited to work their Mono Magic on our stage. The artists are allowed to use everything present on our stage and are welcome to add anything they want to enhance their performance except the accompaniment of others. The artist will either present their work in two parts or as one whole during this evening.

Tonight you can enjoy the work of Laia Escartin
She was born in 1996 in the Lacandon Jungle (Chiapas, South Mexico). Her mother is from Ghent (Belgium) and her father from Barcelona (Spain). She graduated in June 2020 with Jazz Vocals in the Conservatory of the Liceu (Barcelona). Laia grew up in an old Catalan farmhouse in the fields of Guardiola de Font Rubí. There was a lot of silence and only one neighbor: Miriam; with her, they spent days inventing performances for their siblings and for a big crowd of vineyards. Many years after she realized how relieving that was, and how imagination can open doors to other worlds no matter space, no matter time. That is what drags her to compose and continuously search for sounds through her voice and her violin, and then, expand them on stage with the presence of the public.
She is fascinated by world music, especially by all the different Mediterranean traditions. In her search, she gets inspired by those ancient sounds, which are also a way to travel to other worlds, learn of them and then tell the story again.
