In 2000 the Karina Erhard together with Fie Schouten founded Kaida. During 7 years they worked intesively and played many concerts. One of their main goals was to explore the connection between contemporary written and improvised music. Their refreshing approach to music and high level of playing are convincing: In 2003 KAIDA was awarded the special prize for improvisation at the ‘International Gaudeamus Competition’ as well as the special prize ‘Buffet-Crampon’ during the ‘International Chamber-music Competition Illzach’ (France). In 2001 the ensemble received the the ‘Stichting Tera de Marez Oyens Fonds’ prize.
