Asra is an Arabic girl's name meaning «The Night Traveler» or «Nocturnal Journey».
«ASRA - NOCTURNAL JOURNEY»
This is the title of the debut album (@ XJazz! Music, Berlin) which was recorded in September 2022 together with producer Michael Haves from Berlin, bringing songwriter and bandleader Catherine Tang's interpretation of the night to life. Sensitive, melancholic and hopeful at the same time.
The newly founded group from Basel, joined by Catherine Tang (keys), Ruben Kilchling (as), Joseph Bijon (g), Paul Pattusch (b) and Lucas Zibulski (dr) invites you to linger on a musical journey using own compositions between American and European Jazz and pop moments, encouraging wandering thoughts using warm acoustic sounds and flashes of electroacoustics. Over two years, the group has worked and discussed intensively their first musical ideas up to the final studio recording. A fresh footprint of a young quintet on their way to independence in musical language and form in the modern jazz reality.
