Cape Verdean and Cuban music come together with adventurous jazz, led by master percussionist Nils Fischer and piano virtuoso/composer Carlos Matos, featuring singer Dina Medina. ‘Exciting, sensual, pleasant’ (de Volkskrant).
With CaboCubaJazz, Nils Fischer and Carlos Matos present a wholly unique mixture of energetic Cuban jazz and dreamy Cape Verdean melodies. Master percussionist Fischer, known from Timbazo and Cubop City Big Band, founded the band together with pianist Carlos Matos, ambassador for Cape Verdean music in Europe.
The musicians, including singer Dina Medina, originate from Cuba, Columbia and the Cape Verde. Following rave reviews for their album Rikeza y Valor the band made successful appearances at, among others, Havana Jazz Festival.
‘A grooving blend of exciting question-and-answer vocals, sensual melodies and pleasant vocal harmonies, freshened up with strong arrangements and improvisations by the wind players’ (de Volkskrant).
‘Seductive, inspirational, passionate!’(Latin Beat Magazine).
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 til 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
