The Sofa Sessions presents Saxophone Emigré Series 2018
Ireland’s music community has been enriched over the last two decades by the arrival of so many talented musicians from around the world, we decided to celebrate that diversity by showcasing three very different foreign-born saxophonists who have all made a home in Ireland.

Raimonda Masiulytė is one of Dublin's finest vocalists. Always a true ambassador of the soul, she sings songs of love lost and gained; of life wholesome and corrupt, songs of hope, songs of the night, all with the passion of a young woman who has been there and knows.
The second in a series of musician-curated gigs presented by The Dublin Jazz Co-op this week features ReDiviDeR. This two-horns-no-chords quartet was established by drummer Matthew Jacobson in 2007 as a creative outlet for his compositions as well as his somewhat perverse fascination with anagrams. While he failed to find such avid fellow followers of wordplays, he did find and enlist the help of improv and rhythmic specialists Derek Whyte (bass), Nick Roth (alto sax) and trombonist Colm O'Hara.
