ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SoCorpo

"Sasha and Sabrina played so exquisitely off of each other that they sounded at times like one voice, and have a superb use of both harmony and oral shapes."
-Chris McGovern, Sequenza 21.

“On Becoming: accuracy, audacity, intelligence, variety, originality and virtuosity. What else can you ask for?”
-Guilherme de Alencar Pinto, Brecha.

“The duo's fascinating vocal technique references classical Indian vocal traditions, polyphonic Scandinavian vocal style, contemporary new music, and is even reminiscent of the Dadaist performances of Dutch vocal artist Jaap Blonk. ...Their vocal delivery is charged with almost telepathic interplay...”
-Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz

'Inelement' draws inspiration and influences from the ancient world's five elements from various cultures: Fire, Water, Air, Earth & Void. It is an ode to the natural world and to the essences that enliven our bodies and lives. This composed and improvised work is for two voices, live and looped. Instrumentally, the work features the mbira array and two zithers, the bowed psaltery and autoharp, which are played acoustically and processed through plucking, bowing, striking and strumming.

Sabrina Lastman (Uruguay/ Israel) is a New York based vocalist, composer, and educator born in Montevideo, Uruguay. Drawing from jazz, Latin American and contemporary music, often integrating extended vocal techniques, Sabrina concentrates her work on jazz projects like the Sabrina Lastman Quartet and the creation of interdisciplinary new music performances combining voice, sound, movement and visuals, such works include: Dialogues of Silence, On Becoming & Inelement (with SoCorpo), River of Painted Birds, and An Encounter with El Duende. Sabrina has performed at Carnegie Hall, Classical Guitar Association of New York, Blues Alley Jazz, Blue Note, Juilliard, New York University, City University of New York, La Mama, Roulette, and Issue Project Room. She has played with musicians such as Fernando Otero, Bakithi Kumalo, Tali Roth, Pablo Aslan, Emilio Solla, Pedro Giraudo, David Silliman, Sasha Bogdanowitsch, Meg Okura, Alexander Norris, The M6 and Philip Hamilton. Sabrina was awarded grants by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) & New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Her album The Folds of the Soul was nominated by the Graffiti Award 2008 as one of the best jazz albums of the year. Sabrina has toured internationally playing in many musical and interdisciplinary projects from Tango to New Music. She graduated from The Jerusalem Academy of Music & Dance in Israel. Her latest album The Candombe Jazz Sessions (ZOHO Music) was released in March 2012.
