Under The Surface Joost Lijbaart

About

The 2017-18 season kicks off with the Jazz India Circuit Launch Concert on 1st December, in Delhi,headlined by Joost Lijbaart, one of the most respected exponents of drumming in the Scandinavian scene – and that is saying a lot, considering that some of the most innovative jazz is being crafted in the region’s jazz conservatories. Lijbaart performs at JIC as part of his project Under the Surface with vocalist Sanne Rambags and guitarist Bram Stadhouders. Bram is one of the most promising new young musicians in the European improvisation circuit who has received many awards and Sanne is one of the few singers of her generation who is able to improvise with self-written texts and poems, sometimes by positioning herself completely between the musicians. This gives her voice an instrumental function which is beautifully in line with the open group sound and the playing of Lijbaart and Stadhouders.
