Bandgladesh (ethno, instrumental)

Mutual admiration and profound respect can be felt in the sessions of these musicians in an unusual quartet formation. Their sound features instant compositions and intuitive improvisations that invites the listeners to enter an internal state of imagination; nothing is changing but everything changes. In their concerts, a circular interplay is revealed by the on-going dialogue of two handpan players that build simple and long melodic progressions that evolve organically creating rhythmical series of signals and responses. In the middle of this progressive atmosphere a trumpet in its subtle virtuosity gathers the oscillation enhancing it into a collective flow, while a N'goni (a kind of African harp) enlightens the rhythmical party with perfectly placed tunes and loops. Now the four of them manage to create a pulse that continuously gets refreshed with invisible harmonies and secondary layers while maintaining the feeling of a never-ending voyage.

Named Live at the bubble, they perform an audiovisual concert that takes place within an inflatable 100 square meters white cloth. The public is invited to come in, sit or lie down comfortably and experience the sound and visual relationship that unfolds.
