Within the dynamic tapestry of Germany's jazz and improvisational music scene, there exists a distinct voice, an ever-evolving essence that captures the spirit of contemporary experimentation. MOSAIC serves as a canvas, framing and contextualizing this unique voice, ensuring its accessibility to a wider audience.

Adding an idiosyncratic touch between XJazz Festival and Jazzwoche, MOSAIC acts as a kaleidoscope of genres and sub-genres mainly focusing on experimental music, ranging from the tranquil melodies of ambient Electro-Acoustic Jazz to improvised experimental music, Krautrock and Progressive Jazz.

First to name of the 2024 line-up is Embryo, the legendary heralds and ambassadors of Krautrock, who since 2016 are led by the grandmaster’s daughter Marja Burchard. Next, there is Belgian-German trio Dictaphone, praised for their melancholic, mysterious and minimalist Electro Jazz since their 2002 debut album “M. = Addiction”. More genre bending music bring Canadian-Iranian band project Quartet Diminished with their amazing amalgamation of 1970s Art Rock, Ethnic Ritual Music, 20th century Avantgarde and Contemporary Jazz. MOSAIC finally witnesses the emergence of Berlin-Leipzig Experimental Jazz duo Narr//Steidle. With 2022 German Jazz Award winner and festival legend  Oliver Steidle on drums and Steffi Narr on guitar, they catch their audience with a growly, improvisational style at its most concise and dynamic.

MOSAIC is not just a music festival. It is a celebration of creativity, and a journey into uncharted sonic territories. Each performance, a piece of a grand mosaic, contributes to a larger image—an image that encapsulates the ethos and character of MOSAIC’s gatherings. For the audience, it may work like a double live album of unique and genre-bending voices of independent Jazz music.
