Brigitte Beraha Lucid Dreamers
Nominated Best Vocalist in the 2021 Jazz Parliamentary Awards, Brigitte Beraha’s early incarnation of ‘Lucid Dreamers’ premiered at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall as a trio with George Crowley (Melt Yourself Down, Yazz Ahmed) and Tim Giles (Nostalgia 77, Iain Ballamy) in November 2019 as part of the London Jazz Festival, with music written by Brigitte, inspired by the industrial world that we live in. Now extended to a quartet with Alcyona Mick (Natacha Atlas) on piano, the quartet released their debut album ‘Lucid Dreamers’ on Let Me Out Recordsin July 2020, with their follow up 'Blink' in the Spring 2022. The original music - with or without lyrics - is both melodic and abstract. It draws from the jazz, folk, contemporary classical and electronic worlds, with atmospheric and open improvisations, exciting grooves and impactful stillness.
