Hans Peter Salentin / Laura & Kristina Marti International Jazz project
In May, Ukraine will see a unique tour of the international jazz project by Laura & Kristina Marti and Hans Peter Salentin.
The Ukrainian jazz singers Laura & Kristina Marti will present a joint program with the European jazz trumpeter Hans Peter Salentin. Laura & Kristina Marti met Hans Peter Salentin in 2015 during summer master classes in Poland. The idea was born to create a joint project of the authors' jazz music, which in May Laura & Kristina Marti and Hans Peter Salentin will present in Lviv, Kiev and Odessa. The project will feature compositions written by Hans Peter Salentin, Laura & Kristina Marti, as well as pianist Nataliya Lebedeva. In the future we are planning to record an album.
