The pianist Lionel Haas, born in Bonn in 1971, has been playing the piano since the age of 9. After a stay of 4 years in Washington DC he has made himself at home in Berlin since 1999. Besides his trio, quintet and octett formations, he is working as one of the most sought after sidemen of the Berlin jazz scene. He is effortlessly at home in different styles of jazz and proves himself an ever increasingly, highly virtuosic soloist with a passionately strong blues feeling again and again.
Being the son of a musician, Steve Nanda started his introduction to jazz in his early teens. He started playing at gigs and festivals from the ripe age of 15 and continued his music career from there. At 16, he won Yamaha’s Best Asian Drummer award which also led his band to win The Best Asian Band award. He started working with Michael Veerapen, who gave him (and continues to) the opportunity to explore various musical genres and settings. He is currently pursuing his studies in Jazz and Pop in Mainz, Germany.
