ZHANG HUNGTAI (Dirty Beaches) / MARANHA / FERRANDINI (tw/pt)
• Alex Zhang Hungtai – saxophone, vocals and percussion
• David Maranha – organ and percussion
• Gabriel Ferrandini – drums and percussion
This trio was invited by the legendary Blue Note to create new music based around a jazz figure for the Blogoteque website. They chose John Coltrane as their guiding light for a couple of performances well remembered by those fortunate enough to catch them. Their album 'Âncora' has the urgency of Coltrane's most far out recordings while tapping into a new form of lyricism. Since then, the trio has been developing its own language, taking free jazz onto a new path that manages to avoid genre trappings, channeling the Arkestra's spirits through No Wave's physicality. A ritual-like vortex of fiercely rhythmic communal percussion, freeform drones and solemn war cries.
CEMENT SHOES (pt/hu/it)
• Giovanni Di Domenico – Fender Rhodes
• Gonçalo Almeida – bass
• Balázs Pándi – drums
To find mister Almeida, Di Domenico, and Pándi on the same stage is a great thing. These individuals will be cementing and expanding their genre-bending qualities that are inherent in their many other projects; from drone, (post) metal to freejazz; Cement Shoes is a trio where individuality is paramount. Live, this band plays adventurous music that will have you glued to the floor, just like if you would be wearing cement shoes.
SEBASTIANO CARGHINI (it)
Italian modular synth master and performer who also utilizes physical objects in his recordings. Bubbling old school synths that bend their way into infectious patterns that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
