Our video “Conejitos Amarillos” with original piano composition and performance by German jazz pianist Uli Lenz has been selected for the Kids Program at the Anibar Animation Festival in Peja, Kosovo, 21-25 August 2016!

About the video:

“Conejitos Amarillos” is a short energetic piece composed and performed by German jazz pianist Uli Lenz, combined with a poem by Red Haircrow. Inspired by Lenz’s thoughts on the song’s creation and the mixture of jazz and animation in iconic Tom & Jerry cartoons, Red Haircrow created a simple but fast moving musical story of comedic gravity about the idiosyncracies of rabbits. It is part of Lenz & Haircrow, “Poetry & Piano” project, and created by Flying With Red Haircrow Productions. https://www.facebook.com/flyingwithredhaircrowproductions/

“Conejitos Amarillos” is a live recorded performance from Lenz’s solo album “Dance Mañana” available at HGBS Studios.

About Uli Lenz:

Lenz is regarded as a brilliant musical engineer with a particularly strong left hand, and an immediately recognizable style. Through his melodically complex but highly danceable style of play, while in Africa, he acquired the nickname ‘The man who dances on the keys.’

Although based in Berlin, Germany, and being a well known artist in the local jazz scene, Uli Lenz is a world traveler in the field of jazz, serving as a musical ambassador for Germany. His tours have taken him to almost every country on earth. He has played and continues to perform in various groups, bands, duos and trios with fellow artists such as François Jeanneau, Cecil McBee, Ira Coleman, Pepe Burns, Patricia Nomakosazana Dhlamini, Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez and more!”
