Tuncay Acar talks to musician and artist Ira Blazejewska about her work and her life. Together with Frankie Chinasky (keyboard), Sebastièn Bennett (guitar) and Jerker Kluge (bass), Ira Blazejewska also sings a few tracks from her new album “Dystopianern” live at the Habibi Kiosk.

The Munich-born artist and musician Ira Blazejewska works in the fields of painting, performance/singing and staging total art spaces. After training in music and dance, she studied singing and musicology at the Musikhochschule München and the LMU Munich. During her studies, she performed in chanson programs, sang in the klezmer band “Die Shtetlmusikanten” and had two children. This was followed by engagements at the Bordeaux and Paris operas, the Isny Opera Festival and a permanent engagement with “Ludwig Musical”. In addition to concerts with various jazz and classical formations, she pursues an interdisciplinary approach in her projects, combining singing, literature, performance and painting. With her project “Dystopians”, singer and songwriter Ira Blazejewska has created a unique electro-acoustic pop-chanson cabaret. In her songs, she brings together pop music from different eras: Tradition and modernity mix, complement or cancel each other out and in turn create something new. The album is an anti-fascist, anti-racist and pro-queer statement. The Dystopianer*innen Band consists of Ira Blazejewska (vocals), Franky Chinasky (keys and toys), Andrè Schwager (piano), Jerker Kluge (bass) Sebastien Bennett (guitar), Martin Majewski (trumpet) and Wolfgang Pleyerl (drums).
