So What’s Next? Downtown presents: Awir Leon

Location: Gaslab

With this guy, singer, composer and producer Awir Leon, we’ve got a super talent on stage. On his debut album Giants (2016) he offers warm electronics, astonishing soundscapes and – quite important we must add- a beautiful voice. He reminds a bit of James Blake, Chet Faker and even Thom Yorke, but the once in Amsterdam residing Frenchman has more to offer. Not only as a part of the progressive act UNNO with whom he still makes music, but also is Leon a composer for diverse dance choreographies. All these influences come together in ‘Giants’ on which he let us hear he’s a big producer, singer, composer and most of all: a talented musical gem.

This concert is organized together with the renowned Jazzfestival So What’s Next? Already four years in a row So What’s Next? in Muziekcentrum Eindhoven has been sold out. With a strict emphasis on the up and coming stars of the world of jazz and beyond the festival is rocking and jazzing like crazy. Would you like some proof? Here’s a list of the artists of the last three years: Jett Rebel, Jamie Woon, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote, Gallowstreet, Christian Scott, Jono McCleery, Ibrahim Maalouf, Typhoon, Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin, Gregory Porter, José James, Jameszoo, Aaron Parks, Joshua Redman, Tigran Hamasyan, and Snarky Puppy.
