07/05/2020 @ ICR Londra

Celebrated pianist & composer Lucian Ban takes over “I soul a t i o n”, the Romanian Cultural Institute in London's series of interviews with artists during the pandemic crisis.

NYC based Lucian Ban will conduct two dialogues with jazz musicians, promoters and journalists from Romania, UK and the Netherlands:
”We will try to highlight the challenges and the community’s reaction, on both sides of the Atlantic, during the global crisis. Cancelled tours and concerts, closed halls and clubs, postponed festivals - which are the questions and, moreover the answers of this challenge? How can practitioners and institutions, artists and critics contribute to the new reality and to the idea of hope?” (Lucian Ban)
