Transfiguration

Teodora and Benny Rietveld Quintet

TRANSFIGURATION is the result of an exceptional musical collaboration between Teodora Enache and Benny Rietveld. The project started in 2014, with the support of the US Embassy in Bucharest. A CD was produced and released and the show was taken on tour in Romania.

The CD was recorded in 2015, at Audio Mix House studios in Las Vegas (USA) and Abbey Road in London (UK): Teodora Enache (vocals), Benny Rietveld (bass), Pepe Jimenez (drums), Manu Koch (keyboards), Allen Won (sax), Ren Martin-Doike (viola), Ramon Yslas (percussions), and Fred Schreuders (guitar).

TRANSFIGURATION includes reinterpretations of traditional Romanian and Jewish songs, as well as some of Teodora’s original compositions. It illustrates the unique capability of music to overcome any boundaries – may they be geographic, of language or ethnic.
