NICA live: Tamara Lukasheva, Laurent Derache & Calvin Lennig

French accordionist Laurent Derache has been touring worldwide since 2005. His diversity is impressive. Collaborations with theatres (Opéra Eclaté, Comédiens et Compagnie) or musical encounters with Maria Schneider, Sanseverino, Art Menge or Orchestre National de Lille. With his trio he became a prize winner several times and as a soloist he got the 1st prize at the Jazzwoche Burghausen Festival 2013.

Calvin Lennig (*1993 in Duisburg) is a German bassist currently living in Cologne. He studied jazz double bass with Robert Landfermann and electric bass with Stefan Rademacher at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. He then moved to Cologne in 2017 and has since become an integral part of the jazz scene there.

Despite his young age, Calvin Lennig has already played on stage with many renowned jazz artists. Examples include collaborations with Seamus Blake, Evan Parker, Christian Lillinger, Adam Nussbaum, Kit Downes and Pablo Held.

Tamara Lukasheva has been at home in Cologne since 2010. In 2017 she receives the New German Jazz Award Mannheim, in 2018 Horst and Gretl- Will Stipendium, in 2021 WDR Jazz Preis in the category composition. Since 2019 Tamara is part of the NICA Artist Development program, which enables her to put together such collaborations.
