‘Life in Music’ MASTER CLASS
with the Wojtek Justyna TreeOh! (Holland*)
*Band members hail from Poland, Germany, and Portugal

How can your musical passion lead to a Life in Music?

From their beginnings as a student band, through developing their creative working style to the inner mechanisms of album releases and worldwide tours. The group will share their 15+ year experience as a recording and touring entity.

They will discuss their creative process, approach to music and building working relationships within the band. They will touch upon instrumental, technical and improvisational topics and in addition will devote attention to the business side of the music industry (organizing tours, promoting concerts, brand building, financing, social media, etc.).

Be sure to come out and learn from this exciting band visiting us from Europe on their 1st ever-North American tour!


ABOUT THE ARTIST:

The Wojtek Justyna TreeOh! fuses the energy of funk-jazz, the colors and rhythms of world music with fresh sonic explorations through combining soaring fuzzy leads with the rootsy sounds of traditional African instruments and throbbing synth bass lines. For their third album “THRICE” (2022) the musicians have joined their creative compositional talents to write a set of music that is packed with head nodding grooves, intriguing harmonies and vigorous melodies that are bound to captivate the listener.

Countless worldwide performances in clubs and renowned jazz festivals such as Jazz in Daegu (South Korea), Delft Jazz Festival, State-X New Forms, Bevrijdingsfestival (The Netherlands), Jazzmeile Thüringen, Jazzahead! (Germany) and Letni Festiwal Jazzowy (Poland) have earned the TreeOh! a reputation of an electrifying live act full of dynamics, colorful textures and fiery interplay between the band members.
