Get to know the Dutch groups that were scheduled for European Jazz Meeting
Four Dutch groups were announced for the European Jazz Meeting during jazzahead! in Bremen, Germany. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this year's edition of the international trade fair and festival had to be cancelled. As usual, Dutch Performing Arts was scheduled to present the Dutch jazz scene there in collaboration with inJazz/Buma Cultuur. Nevertheless, we proudly present the four Dutch groups: Rembrandt Frerichs Trio, Sun-Mi Hong Quintet, Guy Salamon Group, and KAMA Kollektiv.
Our partner inJazz puts the spotlight on the Dutch artists in four online interviews on their website. Check them out to get to know the artists' work and how they deal with the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.
Rembrandt Frerichs Trio's pianist and composer Rembrandt Frerichs - 'A return to the hipness of modern jazz'
Sun-Mi Hong Quintet's drummer, composer and band leader Sun-Mi Hong - 'Drumming and composing are completely separated for me'
Guy Salamon Group's drummer and composer Guy Salamon - 'The power is in the togetherness'
KAMA Kollektiv's singer, trumpeter and main composer Kirsi-Marja Harju - 'Inspiration from nature, people, everyday events and little things'
