This young band takes regard of no musical borders. Blending oriental musical philosophy with the adventurousness of jazz they’ve created a unique sound, ranging from melodic to rhythmic, concrete to abstract and acoustic to electronic. Surprising audiences and critics they quickly won in 2008 the Dutch Jazz Competition and the Holland Casino Jazz&Pop Award, and have since toured in Europe, Asia and America. They have recorded two albums with the dutch label Challenge, Finding A Way (2010) and Jalkan Bazz (2012).

Following the band leader’s move to France in 2014, the band has produced a third album and has been joined by saxophonist/clarinetist Christophe Panzani , who’s credentials include the Carla Bley Band.

For their upcoming album they are joined by guitarist Federico Casagrande, the appraised Italian guitar wizard who’s collaborations, among many, include Enrico Pieranuzzi.
