Zip Zip


Almost limitless and undogmatic is the music of the Transorient Orchestra, of spiritual strength, without being kitschy, and animated by rhythmic complexity and strength, without appearing textbook virtuoso. The ensemble combines the intellectual pleasure of improvising jazz with a sensual musical attitude that wants to appeal not only to initiates. "Zip Zip" is guaranteed to win a lot of new aficionados of the Transorient Orchestra.

For years, the Transorient Orchestra has stood for a fusion of musical cultures that could probably only be created in the Ruhr region of Germany. Twelve musicians from Germany, Turkey, Iran, Tunisia and Syria have joined forces to create a dazzling mix of oriental melodies and rhythms with Western harmony and jazzy improvisation. Since its foundation, the ensemble has met with a lively public interest and received the WDR Jazz Prize in the category Music Cultures in 2017. At the time, the jury found: "For years, the Transorient Orchestra has been more than simply a larger, multicultural band that brings together refined improvisation and concise composition, Western rock and jazz with Eastern rhythms, Arabic melodies, Persian tones, and this with impressive force and class. It is a band that very offensively understands its musical fusion work beyond all purity laws as the natural music of the highly urban region in which it is at home, which has always been marked by migration flows and encounters between strangers."
