The Impro Train

The Impro Train is back, baby!
Three sets by two ensembles. Go to one, go to them all, either way it’ll be a fabulous evening.

Saxophone, piano and percussion form the sound of Hupata!, alongside a wonky, wobbly, rickety, going hog wild wagon filled with toys, which transform and take shapes of birds, elephants, camels, taking you for a journey.

Mother Tongue – Molla Sylla voice/mbira/xalam, Oscar jan Hoogland electric clavichord and Frank Rosaly drums – recently recorded a great half hour piece in de Rode Bioscoop as part of the Amarte Concert Series. Enjoy watching the trio at work – we also recommend hooking up to some good speakers for real closed eyes listening pleasure.

Thanks to the Roode Bioscoop, to Isla van Hout for the production, to the camera people and to Marc Schots for  a more that fantasic recording.
