“Izabella’s latest project combines the sound of vibraphone and harp with very special, unusual instruments such as glass harp, sundrum, array mbira, marimba, steel drum, crotales
or Waterphone, which rarely appear in jazz and improvised music. This creates completely new worlds of sound. Inspired by impressionism. The listener gets a chance to experience a new, different sound experience. The album features the extraordinary Polish – Japanese singer Yumi Ito from Basel (CH).
