Laia Genc


Laia is a freelance musician living and working in the rich Cologne music scene and playing all around Europe and in the world with her own projects as well as a sidewoman. Laia is a proud holder of several European jazzensemble prices as well as solopianoprices that she awarded whether on her own or with her pianotrio LiaisonTonique which is the heart of her work since 2005. Since then the band has recorded it's third cd and is playing concerts all around the world. To a lot of projects she adds a special colour as a sensitive soundpainteress, improviser, composer and arranger in her own particular way of mixing Jazz, free Improvisation and lots of musical charme to an unmistakable sound. Laia graduated her studies in jazzpiano at the conservatory in Cologne/Germany with some brave teachers, among them John Taylor in 2006. During her studies Laia lived in Paris for one year and studied at the Conservatoire national supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. This year in France for her became one of the most inspiring and onleading periods of her studies. Since she has started playing extensively in 2006 she has been traveling and working musicwise in Luxemburg, Italy, France, Norway, Lithuania, Haiti, Belgium, The Netherlands and Australia. In Australia she toured in 2009 with her LiaisonTonique and Adam Simmons as special guest on the saxophones. If there is a chance for a new and challenging collaboration it's mostly ever an attractive offer for her to take. She is always interested in combining ideas, combining different stiles of music and to grow them into something special.
