Elina Duni & Rob Luft (AL, CH/UK)

For eleven years the Swiss-Albanian singer Elina Duni was in a quartet formation with the pianist Collin Vallon – for instance at J&tC in 2013. In 2016 she broke new ground with the solo program "Partir". Nine farewells in the environs of world music and chanson - in nine different languages that have so far accompanied her life. Sparsely accompanied by guitar, piano or a frame drum, intimate and completely unpretentious, melancholic, but not without a glimmer of hope. She brings the Brit Rob Luft (Django Bates, Loose Tubes) to the festival. The duo's "Songs Of Love And Exile" tie in with "Partir", whereby the British guitarist discreetly brings in his love for West African grooves.
