Enji + Damian Dalla Torre

silent green presents

Enji's third album, Ulaan, opens with a stark reminder of her humanity as she declares, "I am Ulaan" in her native Mongolian, a term affectionately given by her family.

Throughout the album, Enji explores affirming expressions of herself, building on the jazz, folk, and Mongolian influences from her previous work. Enji's vocals soar to new heights, matching the band's exploration. Each song, inspired by moments of spontaneity and personal experiences, showcases Enji's evolving self-discovery. Whether evoking dreams, capturing breathtaking views, or recounting village visits, her storytelling unfolds through rhythmic Mongolian melodies, highlighting her growth as a vocalist, bandleader, and storyteller.

With guitarist and co-composer Paul Brändle and River Adomeit on bass, Enji is embarking on her first tour through Europe, leaving behind memorable moments of quietude and strength.


Damian Dalla Torre
Damian Dalla Torre's debut album Happy Floating (2022, Squama Recordings) is a broad personal project of deep contemplation and quiet emotionality. With a rich collage of field recordings, brass instruments, synth-strings strings and delicate sampling techniques, oscillating between gentle familiarity and dreamlike distortion, Damian Dalla Torre seeks to explore a state of Happy Floating: in this pursuit, he remains self-aware of the fickle nature of carelessness, powerfully concentrating it in sonic form. Of the work, he says, „it’s ambivalent – you are melancholic, but at the same time blatantly hopeful.“ Damian Dalla Torre’s work encapsulates the collective feeling of a generation in challenging times, where a careful sense of optimism persists against the backdrop of an increasingly murky world outside one’s own four walls.
