Description

A truly international supergroup dedicated to creating music which exceeds stylistic and cultural bounds. Progressive jazz blending Middle-Eastern and South-East Asian flavours, creating music which is both soulful and cerebral.

Co-led by Swiss-born guitarist Nicolas Meier and Indonesian rock guitar icon Dewa Budjana who between them have recently released albums featuring Jimmy Haslip, Vinnie Colaiuta, Gary Husband, Tony Levin and Jack DeJohnette.

Supporting the group’s co-leaders are some equally impressive, legendary talents, the chief of which is renowned U.S. bassist, Jimmy Haslip, a long-time member and co-founder of the modern jazz trailblazers, The Yellowjackets.

Haslip’s rhythmic counterpart is the remarkably sensitive and dynamic drummer, Israel-born Asaf Sirkis, whose style places dynamics on an equal footing with time keeping. His delicate, probing drum work has drawn critical praise, earning him the respect due a truly world-class talent.

Rounding out this all-star lineup is Saat Syah, the iconic multi-instrumentalist and soundscapist, originally from Borneo, whose legato lines and trenchant explorations on custom made bamboo suling flutes provide a presence that’s eloquent and enchanting.
