lyrical groove jazz

In June 2022, Lukas DeRungs will be presenting a brand new line-up of his quintet, featuring: Immy Churchill on vocals (London, UK), Karim Saber on guitar (London, UK), Jonas Esser on drums (Mannheim/New York), and Jan Dittmann on bass (Mannheim). Five exceptional musicians who have never been on stage together before, blend into one body of sound. Lukas’ compositions express his love for pulse and rhythm, whilst reflecting various influences from contemporary jazz, European choral music and Eastern melodies. His music always maintains a strong identity and distinctive sound, which acts as the foundation for each band member’s improvisations.

Lukas DeRungs is an award-winning pianist and composer, currently living in Mannheim (DE). Over the past years he has been an active part of the European jazz scene with trio de lucs (Jazzopen Stuttgart 2016, Burghauser Newcomer Jazz Competition 2017, B-Jazz Leuven BE 2018) and his quintet. He holds scholarships from the Art Foundation Baden-Württemberg, Musikfonds, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Nicky Hopkins Award. In 2021, he graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London with distinction. In November 2022 he will be releasing his debut album KOSMOS SUITE, a suite for chamber choir and jazz ensemble.
