Classical trumpet meets electronics and musical influences from the Middle East

Composer, pianist and electronic artist Kaan Bulak and trumpeter Simon Höfele release their sonically powerful album “No Clouds in Haraz”, that is an expressive experience between geographical and instrumental boundaries, merging influences from the Middle East and contemporary music with the electronic sound language of Berlin

In the realm of music, where creativity knows no bounds, trumpeter Simon Höfele and composer Kaan Bulak join forces to unveil a mesmerizing sonic tapestry in their latest collaborative album, “No Clouds in Haraz.” This musical odyssey is not merely an assortment of tracks but a profound homage to faraway places and a shared love for the simple yet profound pleasure of coffee. As the needle drops onto the vinyl or the digital waves fill the air, listeners are transported to distant worlds, guided by the evocative melodies and innovative compositions of Bulak. The album’s title, a nod to the majestic mountains of Haraz in Yemen, sets the stage for a journey that goes beyond geographical boundaries.

At the heart of this musical endeavor is a celebration of diversity―both in landscapes and musical influences. The harmonious blend of trumpet, synths, beats, and experimental sounds creates a sonic landscape that mirrors the intricate tapestry of our global cultural heritage. Each note resonates with the essence of places unseen, inviting the audience to experience a rich tapestry of sound. The trumpet takes center stage, its resonant tones weaving seamlessly with electronic enchantments, giving rise to a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. The result is a musical fusion that not only captivates the soul but also paints a vivid picture of the evolving nature of our interconnected world.
