BIOGRAPHY

DUO HOFMANINGER/SCHWARZ is a jazz duo that takes a completely different musical route and dares to experiment. Having already worked together several times in the past years, Lisa Hofmaninger (soprano saxophone, bass clarinet) and Judith Schwarz (drums) have now joined forces for this new project and embark on a journey through time. The starting point of their project is “davul-zurna”, which is the oldest musical line-up documented in our cultural history. “Davul” means “drum” in Turkish, “zurna” refers to the original double reed instruments in Turkey, a precursor to the oboe. The goal of Lisa Hofmaninger and Judith Schwarz is to reawaken this kind of sound and approach this original form of music from the East with their own instruments. Duo Hofmaninger/Schwarz has been selected as NASOM “New Austrian Sound of Music” act 2020-21.
