Artvark & Drums United (NLD)
4 saxophones, 4 drummers, 4 continents… The worldwide touring Artvark Saxophone Quartet has engaged in numerous very well received collaborative projects, such as with the classical soprano Claron McFadden, the legendary drummer Peter Erskine or the UK Apollo Saxophone Quartet. Now Delfos, Wirtz, Erker and Broekhuizen dive deep into the World of Groove. Their partner in crime on this occasion is the mighty collective Drums United, which consists of hugely respected percussionists from 4 different continents: Venezuelan Marco Toro, Turkish Alper Kekeç and Senegalese Moussé Pathé. Leader Lucas van Merwijk from The Netherlands is regularly chosen in the notable polls as best World and Fusion Drummer of the Benelux. Artvark & Drums United promise to the audience on a timeless trip, passing a meditative choral with singing percussion directly into the face of a steaming saxophone solo on a deep swamp groove.
