We’re very proud to announce that The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble has been confirmed for the 2011 Roadburn Festival, set for Thursday, April 14 at the Midi Theatre in Tilburg, Holland.
Formed in 2000 as a project to compose new music for existing silent movies, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, led by Jason Köhnen (Bong-Ra) and Gideon Kiers, proves that there is still something fresh to be created at the nexus of post-rock, jazz and drone, as showcased on stunning albums like the Mutations EP and Here Be Dragons.
Darker than future jazz, yet lighter than doom jazz, the band’s beautiful cinematic soundscapes evoke images of abandoned villages in a post-war eastern european silent film, eerie yet melancholy.
Impressive, profound and organic, the band’s deeply emotional and original trips are a perfect rendition of the ensemble’s live shows. Combining traditional instrumentations (comprising cello, trombone, violin, beats, guitar, bass and vocals sometimes) with existing and / or self-developed software, continuously blending and mutating, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble creates an organic and electronic performance, supported by visuals which add to and interact with the frequencies of said instruments.
