Moments with ALOE BLACC, Mihalj “MIKI” Kekenj & JAYBO – The Songs.

In the Spring of 2011, a composer, a painter and a singer came together at MADE to create a moment.

Aloe Blacc´s original music was interpreted by Miki and his string-quintet, who translated the soul & funk songs into classical music compositions.
The string-quintet version and the lyrics of Aloe’s song “I Need a Dollar” inspired Jaybo to create his own visual interpretation of the song as an art piece.

Every day in the coming week, we will share with you each song that was performed by Aloe and Miki’s string quintet during that magical evening. Finally, a special bonus track will be presented, so make sure you check back here!

Enjoy.

PART 1/ 6 : TAKE ME BACK

PART 2/ 6 : IF I

PART 3/ 6: MAMA HOLD MY HAND

PART 4/ 6: LOVING YOU IS KILLING ME

PART 5/ 6: I NEED A DOLLAR
