City of Dreams
Julia Malischnig Solo
Julia Malischnig & Band
In her successful double Album City of Dreams in 2010, the guitarist, singer and composer Julia Malischnig has already shown that there are no stylistic barriers for her. Now her new album and project reveals a kaleidoscope of musical variety, which spans the continents: Kiss of Life was inspired by her concert trips to South Africa, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Kiev as well as her roots in Carinthia and presents the artist’s own moving and engaging compositions.
Julia Malischnig’s music tells stories, which are full of colour, contrast, intensity and passion. Her poetic compositions flit between classical, world music influences and jazz harmony. They are performed in a spirited and virtuoso manner and are supplemented with atmospheric and authentic songs in which the guitarist also impresses as a singer. At the heart of the programme are her arrangements and the interweaving of Carinthian songs with folk melodies from other countries.
Kiss of Life - Julia Malischnig solo or with a band – is a fascinating combination of emotionality and virtuosity. It features a musical crossover artist who eludes all fashion trends with her unconventional and unique style.
