Adriano Adewale Quartet : 9th September, London

Throw aside preconceived musical prejudices, abandon all attempts to catalogue: a rich chemistry of cultural influences is at work when the Adriano Adewale Group gets together on stage.
Rooted in the musical traditions of Nigeria, Angola and Brazil and infused with contemporary European classical and jazz styles, percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale’s music is a global fusion of musical influences.

“Music starts and finishes with silence.  From beginning to end there is much that is seen and experienced that cannot be put into words.  Our music varies in shape, weight and colour, and it takes the audience on a journey where sounds uncover intrinsic identities of simplicity and beauty, through translating images, words and movement into music.” Adriano Adewale.

He performs with his outstanding ensemble of international musicians:
Australian Nathan Thomson on double bass and flute; Senegalese Kadialy Kouyate on kora and vocals; and Brazilian Marcelo Andrade, on flute, sax and rabeca.
“Adriano Adewale boasts an imposing collection of firepower yet
deploys it with rare restraint.” The Times

Adriano formed the Adriano Adewale Group in 2007 to explore his own compositions with other accomplished musicians.  Their music explores issues of history, identity and nature. The group has released their debut album SEMENTES (Seeds) in September ’08. Produced by international Jazz ledgend Gilad Atzmon the album features Gilad Atzmon and virtuoso guitarist Antonio Forcione.
