album info

Izabella is one of the very few female vibrafonists in Europe and the first from Poland. She organizes a festival for Vibraphone and other seldom heard instruments in the Nuernberg area since 2014. She receives the cultural prize of the city of Nürnberg in 2018. She presents the very rare instrument Array Mbira on her new CD  Crystal silence - Music for Array Mbira. She recorded this instrument for the first time on 2 bonus tracks of her CD IZA (2016). All the compositions come from Izabella exept one and they are small miniatures in which she is searching for her own destinctive sound on the mbira. The music connects world music, jazz, classical sounds and beyond, improvisation and arranged parts. The array mbira is a hand  crafted modern musical instrument with a unique harp- or bell-like sound. It is made in the USA by Bill Wesley and Patrick Hadley in San Diego, California.It is a radical redesign of the african mbira and is part of the lamellaphone family.
