HILA HUTMACHER BAND
The name of Hila's album is ‘Strangers In My Dreams’ and contains original compositions she wrote in the past few years in Amsterdam and Jerusalem. Her songs deal with themes of dreams vs reality, hope, anxiety, liberation, and love. The Theme song, “Strangers In My Dreams’ reflects the subconscious and its influence on the daily choices. The album genre is some sort of modern indie lyrical jazz.
The colorful cultural backgrounds of the band members (Taiwan, Portugal, Italy and Israel) crystalize into one unique texture of multicultural contemporary jazz. The aspect of multiculturalism is very present in this project, as Hila says: "I, myself was brought up in a multicultural house, (Argentinian-Romanian) in Israel and as a child, absorbed South American music and classical music alongside Middle astern music, Israeli folk and jazz." The band is consisting of Julian Wittich (b), Elena Pisano (p), Massimo Imperatore (g) and João Guerra (d).
