Barbara Lahr – “Kintsugi”
There is a place inside, a resting place deep within ourselves, where we are not locked up or cramped, not at a loss for advice or strength, but calm, safe and free to think. We all know about this place, and yet we often search for it in vain. Yet there are signposts to it.
Barbara Lahr knows many of them: Words and wisdom of days gone by. Leisure and meditation. And of course music. Above all: singing! Barbara Lahr has practically always done that, and she is doing it again now, on “Kintsugi”, her first solo release in almost ten years. There are six songs, which at first hearing could almost be mistaken for miniatures because of their lightness – but they are monumental.
