For a reminder, Amalia Umeda Quartet gather four polish musicians in a band formed recently. Their first album « Nowoświt » released last april, mixing illustrative and improvised music. Their unique music composition includes traditional slavic influences as well as experimental and contemporary influences.
We accompagny Amalia Umeda Quartet as part of the program Footprints. It’s a European initiative aiming to reform the music industry through a mentoring and accompaniment program.However, today, we can make various observations about the conditions of production and touring of musicians. By making these observations, Footprints and its partners hope to change the industry towards a responsible and ethical operation. This goal will be achieved through the education of newcomers to the music industry.
