DIETMAR LOWKA

From an early age Dietmar Lowka has been equally at home in the field of classical music, jazz, pop, and also world music. The roots of the double bassist an percussionist, who always performs with joy and dedication, lie in street music. To this day he loves its directness, which has become part of him. He is fascinated by improvisation, compelling rhythms, and enjoys the freedom of alternating between the most diverse musical worlds. Dietmar Lowka, born in Bavaria and still living there, has been on numerous international concert tours with the Quadro Nuevo Quartet. The recordings of Quadro Nuevo, with its classical acoustic line-up of saxophone, guitar, accordion and double bass, have won important prizes, and regularly feature in radio programmes or as music for films and radio plays.

On the new worldwide bass album Dietmar Lowka plays both the percussion and jazz doublebass parts.
