Ast-Gutierrez Duo

Germany, Spain, UK

Miriam Ast - voice
Victor Gutierrez - piano


German jazz singer, Miriam Ast and Spanish pianist, Victor Gutierrez met during their studies at the Royal Academy of Music, London in 2015. They soon formed a duo so that they can explore the jazz standard repertoire in a modern and original way as well as playing their original compositions. Core elements that define the duo are interactive playing, lush harmonies, emotional and virtuosic singing, rhythmic explorations and overall creative openness. In 2016, they played their first gig in London and since then, they have developed and promoted this project by expanding their repertoire, releasing some videos on YouTube and recording a few tracks in the studio. Their music encompasses many different elements, from moments of ‘raging swing’ to more open and free playing, including up-tempo numbers and more quiet, lyrical moments: Their music will lead you on a journey of deep emotion and joy.
