ALE DE ZAN
Neokarma Jooklo Sextet is a new cosmic improvisation project initially born as the larger formation of Jooklo Duo (Virginia Genta and David Vanzan). It officially began on january 2007 from an idea of David Vanzan, who wanted to join this six musicians arriving from many different experiences and bands in a new ensemble. The project often uses to change formation depending from the situations: it could be proposed both as a the original idea of the trio (Genta, Abate, Vanzan) than as Neokarma Jooklo Ensemble. Three more musicians who have partecipated since now to the project as guests are Hartmut Geerken on Sun Harp (special instruments donated to Geerken directly by Sun Ra) and percussions, Makoto Kawabata on electric guitar and Giorgio Pacorig on fender rhodes. Neokarma Jooklo Sextet proposes an intense improvised live-set of experimentations, mixing electronic sounds and dilatated atmospheres with ethnic and folk sounds, which can remind to the audience a kind of oriental, mystic and meditative soundscapes, using the secrets of trance music and progressive creation of the sound. But the main charachter of the ensemble is that all the musicians involved in it are working to build an animistic and homogeneous vibration, pulling down the wall of human ego and directly looking for a perfect symbiosis. A deep journey into the astral and infinite ways of human spirit and mind.
