A concert only with contrabass and voice? Marithé | Jonathan means reduction to the core elements of a song: melody and bass notes. It is a small but complete entity as a band, uniting the brilliant clarity and emotional expression of Marithé Van der Aa’s voice as the female element on the one side, and the warm woody sound and raw expressiveness of Jonathan Nagel’s contrabass as the male element on the other side. “Our music will take you on a journey. We are telling stories of everyday life, but from a perspective you probably have not seen yet. The lyrics are based on very personal experiences and describe the way of young people growing up in this society, having to deal with increasing speed, commercialization, loneliness and confusion, while still loving life and looking for prospects for where our generation might go."
