Guy Salamon Group

The Netherlands
Expressive, energetic eight piece band led by drummer/composer Guy Salamon. Winner of the prestigious competition Keep An Eye The Records.
Since its first appearance in early 2018, Guy Salamon Group has rapidly become an integral part of the Netherlands’ new jazz scene, performing at festivals such as Injazz, So What’s Next and Jazzfest Amsterdam. The group is featured in the recent documentary Red Light Solo, about the new jazz scene in Amsterdam. Their debut album will be released this fall, presenting original compositions, crossing genres, wildly mixing styles, experimenting and merging musical influences from different corners of the world.


Trondheim, Norway

Forged from the prestigious Jazz Academy in Trondheim, JUNO blasted onto the Norwegian scene in 2017 with their unique blend of pop-tinged, rap-infused, groove orientated improv-jazz. Featuring two vocals, sax, bass and drums, their catchy blend of complex grooves, rap and stellar improvisation makes for a compelling live show.

No Tongues
Nantes, France

Immersed in repertoires of ancestral songs from secular oral traditions, a No Tongues concert is a singular experience. This quartet embraces free jazz, folklore, soft drones and explosive percussion for a captivating global musical exploration. The result is stylistically diverse music that is atmospheric and mesmerizingly shamanic.

The Brums
Liège, Belgium

With a mix of brass synths and some intense beats, this quartet wants you to dance! Completely eschewing loops, everything is performed live with each musician helming multiple instruments to deliver an expansive and dynamic sound world. The result? A techno infused, beat-driven rollicking good time!
