When the artist KOOB, stage name of Valeria Dele, decided to move to Berlin in 2020, after the political crisis in Belarus, she was looking for new stimuli and contaminations. In the German capital the project finds wider scope, thanks to the collaboration with the best young musicians of the jazz, soul and avant-garde scene. At Mittelfest, after winning CS under 30, the band presents their first album That Tree, due out in June 2023. The tree of the title is “that tree” of destiny, before which, in the words of Koob: “I have licked the fruit of knowledge for two years, now it is time to bite it”.
