Born just last year, the collaboration between Marc Sanchez Martinez and Eva Serrano is a captivating fusion of Spanish singer-songwriter melodies and reimagined jazz and soul classics. This unique project features the intertwining voices of Eva Serrano and Marc Sanchez Martinez’s double bass, creating an intimate and enchanting musical experience. With a repertoire that pays homage to Spanish music and skillfully adapts jazz and soul favorites, their concert is a treasure trove of surprises and emotional intimacy.

Gregory Smith Invites: Teis Semey and Jort Terwijn

Teis Semey, guitarist, the “bad boy of Dutch jazz” (Trouw), is recognised by a fierce and

explosive style of playing improvised music. Semey’s music takes place in the cross-section

between jazz, punk and electronic improvised music.

Jort Terwijn is a versatile, creative and hard-driving double bassist who is able to shine

in various styles of music from jazz, flamenco, to punk rock and free improv.

These two musicians play together in various projects which are at the forefront of

the Amsterdam creative music scene, and both are also successful composers/leaders of

their own prize-winning bands. For this event, expect fireworks, deep ambiences, and grab-

you-by-the-neck improvisations that will soar above a mix of jazz and odd-meter rhythms.

Afro Carib Ensemble

Dec 2023
The Afro Carib Ensemble.
This ensemble owes its name to the different percussion instruments that are played. The Afro part (Africa) is mainly the indigenous drums and shakers that come from the Winti culture of Suriname, in particular the 'Hari and Koti dron'. Added to this were the Skraty, Timbal, Sing Sing and Bangi.
The Carib (the Caribbean part)) is colored by Congas, Maracas, Quiro Bongos, Timbales and all Latin Percussion instruments.
The ensemble has a strong line-up. A solid orchestra including a spicy brass section with Delbert Bernabel (saxes/flute) Rodney Newland (trumpet) Henk Jones (alto sax). Central to the whole is a dynamic rhythm section with Errol Bakdraad (drums, bangi and timbales) Glenn Kloppenburg (bongos, bongo bell, quiro hari-dron, and skratyi) Romeo Sumter (congas, bongos, small percussion, timbal, koti-dron and tambora). The vocalists are Glenn Vreds (shakers) Latoya Oosterwolde and the undersigned who also takes care of the guitar work. Then Carlos Tjon A Meeuw (bass and hari-dron) and Lemuel Dasburg (piano and keys). All fantastic musicians with extensive stage experience.
The Afro Carib Ensemble is a musical legacy. A musical concept! Conceived, described, played and sung from the roots of Suriname.
