Open up to 1,000 years of musical culture

Curiosity drives. Our musical world is like a flea market, a bazaar, an attic full of stuff waiting to be explored. Our ears love strange sounds and instruments. They trigger questions on style, genre, instrumentation: ‘What if we could…?’.

Curiosity embraces. Our art is all about incorporation: acquired knowledge and fresh insight are respectfully transformed into something new. Other art forms may enter our stage.

Curiosity communicates. After a lot of preparation, we allow our improvisational qualities to take over. An ultimate form of musical thinking, not limited to the jazz tradition. We like our performances to make the audience an active partner in the creative moment.
