MOMENTS at MADE | CHAPTER TWO with Erykah Badu, Jaybo & Miki’s String Quintet | Recap
Last Thursday evening marked the next chapter of MOMENTS at MADE – a journey of inspiration and artistic reinvention, with the continuation of the artistic circle of one artist inspiring another artists inspiring another artist… and creating a MOMENT.
We had the pleasure of having violinist & composer Mihalj “Miki” Kekenj’s string-quintet and painter Jaybo back again with us; and were honored to welcome the free spirit and beautiful talent of Erykah Badu to MADE, and into our hearts.
the creative process…
In the weeks leading up to last week, a selection of Erykah’s songs were translated and recomposed into classical string pieces by Miki, while inspiring Jaybo to create a visual manifestation of her music and lyrics in the form of a painting.
This journey culminated with the presentation of Jaybo’s art piece and the magical live, acoustic performance of the recomposed songs by Erykah and the string-quintet.
It was an evening of positive energy and soulful reflection, as we were delighted to experience the next step of this journey come to life, and share it with all in attendance.
We would like to quote our friend Safia Dickersbach: “Last thursday was high temperature of passion to music and art and I still have a strong fever from it!” as we all do!
Erykah, Miki and Jaybo thank you so much for your passion, energy and love.
The film documenting this chapter of the journey is currently being finalized and will be available here soon.
Enjoy the photos of the event.
