Teis Semey Kwintet
10 februari @ 20:00€6
The Teis Semey Quintet is a dynamic contemporary jazz band that fuses elements from the avant-garde with punk and Scandinavian music, creating a distinct sonic universe of cold, raw passion, an unforgiving urge for art and expression.
During the first lockdown of 2020, Teis Semey was at home by his parents in Sweden, where he spent a lot of time diving into his grandmothers old song books. As a result, the Quintet’s new music has a Nordic flavour with overtones of indie rock. In the unfiltered guitar driven sound-universe of Teis Semey, the Teis Semey Quintet takes the listener on a journey through seas and forests. Stormy, calm, passionate and above all attentive music that rips away the prejudice that jazz is hard to listen to: this is not cerebral music – it is felt emotions expressed honestly through melodic compositions and dramatic interplay.
The Teis Semey Quintet is made up by five of the most virtuosic and innovative young jazz talents in the Netherlands: Teis Semey (Denmark), Sun Mi Hong (Korea), Alistair Payne (Scotland), Jort Terwijn (Netherlands) and José Soares (Portugal).
