    Tigran Hamasyan Wins Deutscher Jazzpreis, Named International Artist of the Year

    Congratulations to Tigran Hamasyan, who has been awarded the Deutscher Jazzpreis 2021 for Piano/Keyboards and has been named International Artist of the Year. The Jazzpreis is a new jazz award launched by the German government's Commissioner for Culture and Media. Winners were announced in a livestreamed awards ceremony this afternoon.

    "I am really honoured to receive two awards from Deutscher Jazzpreis for my latest album The Call Within," Hamasyan says. "I would like to thank the organisation and jury members at Deutscher Jazzpreis. Also big thank you and congratulations to all the incredibly talented musicians who have been nominated and awarded this year. To my German fans: We will meet soon!"

    Tigran Hamasyan's 2020 Nonesuch album, The Call Within, is a journey into his dreamlike inner world, taking inspiration from his interest in maps from different eras, poetry, Armenian folk stories, astrology, geometry, ancient Armenian design, rock carvings, and cinematography, and creating what Record Collector calls "a kaleidoscopic tapestry of sound." Jazzwise exclaims: "An exceptional recording for exceptional times." You can hear it here.

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
