Timeline of Teodora Enache

2019

Teodora’s career spans over a period of more than 25 years. She used jazz and improvisation as a vehicle on her journey through various cultures and music genres (jazz, world music, gospel, African music, ethno-jazz, Romanian Doina, classical music, swing etc.).

This is how ”The Prophet” project is born. The music, as well as the entire vision for the show, bear Teodora’s signature. The performance is graced by actress Oana Pellea, who gladly partners with Teodora on this project.

In the same time, the artist continues to take on other projects as well, alongside remarkable musicians from all over the world. Teodora and Benny Rietveld (9-time Grammy Award winner, Miles Davis’ former bass player, and currently Carlo Santana’s bassist and musical director) along with his quintet organize a tour entitled ‘Transfiguration’. The success of this project leads to the birth of an album with the same name. The recordings for this CD take place in Las Vegas and the famous ‘Abbey Road Studios’ in London.

The concert conceived around Enescu’s works was sold out 3 days before and it took place in the Great Hall of the Bucharest National Theater on September 9, 2019. Created especially for the 2019 edition of the “George Enescu” International Festival, the project featured Teodora Enache (voice), Călin Grigoriu (guitar), Joca Perpignan, from Israel, (percussion) and Răzvan Suma (cello) – as a special guest. Besides Enescu’s Rhapsodies, the concert included also classical works like Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, Bach’s Air on a G String and Pachelbel’s Canon.

2018

As a graduate of the Mathematics University in Iasi, Romania, Teodora fondly remembers that ‘entering the world of jazz was like going into a jungle where my only weapon was my endless love of jazz and improvisation’. Inspired by her jazz idol, Ella Fitzgerald, Teodora makes her debut at the Sibiu Jazz Festival, Romania, in 1993.

For 10 years she studies in the Johnny Răducanu Jazz Academy, working with some of the best Romanian musicians. This is a formative time in her career. Ever since the beginnings, Johnny Răducanu was saying about her: ‘Teodora sings her heart out.’

This is the time when Teodora starts to build up a bridge between American and Romanian music. She takes on the mission of promoting the Romanian Doina worldwide and sing it on every stage she is invited to perform on, considering the Doina as the ‘Romanian blues’. From now on, her projects bring together artists of various ethnicities, making music about their Roots, with the help of jazz as an international music language.

Her project entitled ‘Back to my Roots’ is a success, and is followed by an extended European Tour as well as an American Tour (International House of Columbia University, New York; Kuumbwa Jazz Center, Santa Cruz; Arts Museum – Legion of Honor, San Francisco; Cal Tech University, Los Angeles and Corcoran Museum, Washington).

On her plane journey back from Las Vegas, after a very intense recording session, Teodora comes up with the idea for an original new album based on the works of the Hungarian composer Bela Bartók. Half an year later she teams up with Theodosii Spassov (the great Bulgarian kaval artist) and records an album entitled ‘Incantations – Homage To Bela Bartók’. This project is a world premiere, as this is the first time Bartók’s music is played in a jazz key.

‘When I heard her for the first time I felt her energy straight in my heart, something only Ella Fitzgerald has made me feel.’ – Ahmet Ertegun, Founder of Atlantic Records

‘Teodora has a spiritual vision in music.’ – Benny Rietveld, 9-time Grammy Award winner, Santana’s Bass Player and Musical Director

‘Teodora is one of the few voices in the whole world that goes easily from the ethnical emission and improvisation to jazz improvisation. It’s a very special born talent that takes you smoothly from the world of Doina to the world of Blues, uniting both of them in a unique way.’ – Sergey Shishov, Creator and Host of ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ Radio show on the Bulgarian National Radio

‘Teodora is such a powerful artist, mixing the deep sound of jazz and blues with that mystical sound coming from her roots. Her special vocal technique, coming from classical training, is perfect, she can moan like a black singer and then reach the highest pitch… So original and difficult to imitate. She is unique.’ – Heinz Hess, Jazz Producer at the ‘Art of June Studios’, Germany

‘Teodora’s voice has the passion of fire; her impressive vocal range touches the sky, but comes from the depths of her soul with great strength. Teodora’s music has spiritual dimensions.’ – Florian Lungu, Romanian Jazz critic

‘You are part of our family – you really sing from the bottom of your heart!’ – Johnny Griffin, American jazz tenor saxophonist, awarded the Honorary Doctorate of Music at Berklee College of Music

‘Keep an eye on her! She’s one of a kind!’ – Michel Bedin, Journalist at Jazz Hot Magazine

‘Teodora sings for life and for death.’ – Johnny Răducanu, jazz musician and composer, considered the ‘father’ of Romanian jazz

‘A black voice in white skin.’ – Elle Magazine

‘I will always remember the way she sang My Funny Valentine.’ – Curtis Fuller, American jazz trombonist, known as a member of Art Blakey‘s Jazz Messengers and contributor to many classic jazz recordings.

‘Teodora’s voice bears in the depths the pure black jazz, but also the incantations of the Doina… Due to her singing technique, Teodora’s voice rises as a ‘morning nightingale’ to heights that are almost impossible to reach, acquiring an ambitus similar to the range of a musical instrument.’ – Dan Priscornic, Teodora’s canto teacher

2017

In 2017 the artist moves to Germany. She continues on her exploration journey. Music starts to reveal its deeper meaning. In 2018 she records a new album at the Art of June Studios in Germany. The CD is called ‘Sound of the ROOT’, which includes an original interpretation of the 1 and 2 Romanian Rhapsodies by George Enescu, and it will be released in 2019.

2016

Between 2016 and 2018 she takes on the role of artistic director of the Bucharest International Jazz Festival. Talented musicians are invited to join the festival, to the delight of the audience. Teodora introduces new projects for the younger generation of musicians, giving them the chance to take part in a variety of workshops.

2013

After 2013, Teodora has a fresh approach in her career. It is during this period that she discovers that a deep connection unites us all, regardless of our different stories, origins, ethnicity, religion or political beliefs. She believes that above all our boundaries and human limitations there is something higher that brings us all together. She calls it ‘Our Common Root’. This whole introspection period leads to an immense desire to compose. So she starts writing music as well as writing about her experiences. All of her work is now centered on her belief that: ‘We actually have ONE SINGLE ROOT…. Through music, we find that common root, our source of energy.’

This is the moment when she first approaches the music composed by George Enescu – an encounter which gives rise to a world premiere. It is for the first time ever when Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsodies – included in their repertoire by the most important orchestras worldwide – got a vocal version. The project entitled “From Classical to Jazz” was conceived by Teodora Enache. The two works received a modern, jazz interpretation and the musical arrangements were produced by Teodora and the guitarist Călin Grigoriu.
