LINDA SHARROCK is a legendary jazz singer who became known through her work with Pharoah Sanders and the man who was her husband for a while, Sonny Sharrock. In 2009, she suffered a severe stroke that left her partially paralyzed and aphasic. Since then, she has been fighting to regain ground over this tragedy, one sound at a time. A living lesson in courage, she returned to recording and live performance in 2012, supported by major improvisers from France and the UK. Drawing inspiration from the free jazz that inhabited her for so long and from her musical partner and right-hand man MARIO RECHTERN, she is making the most out of her voice, a testimony that life does go on.
SHARROCK and RECHTERN have both shared the stage with MIA ZABELKA separately in the last three years. ZABELKA made her first appearance at FIMAV in 2011 with her lauded solo performance M. Her propensity for electronically supported multilayered string assemblages promises to open new soundscapes for the premiere outing of this trio, a celebration of the power of music in the face of adversity.
