The quartet of drummer Benedikt Hesse masters the balance between openness and the clear tradition of Afro-Latin American rhythm and culture.
Together with trumpeter Volker Deglmann, guitarist Julian Kessler and bassist Andreas Reinhard, he creates the connection between the freedom of jazz and the opening of its rhythms to modern jazz, to the powerful attitude of the New York Latin jazz scene, which is strongly influenced by tradition , experimentation and improvisational openness.
The Band features the latin-american percussion player and singer Roberto „el paste“ Herrador from El Salvador.
