Baba - 26th August 2018 4pm
Baba (translating to 'Spit' in Portuguese) is a collective of past and present Bmus students from the Sage Gateshead, headed up by bandleaders Thomas and Inês and playing a set of all original music. The band is strongly inspired by previous Jazz Festival favourites like Binker and Moses, and The Alfredo Rodriguez Trio. We have brought together elements of straight ahead, latin and freely improvised jazz to create a unique and contemporary sound. The compositions have a strong sense of space, which allow for the individual voices in the band to shine through and create opportunities for spontaneous interaction. Interaction between the band members is something we all feel is integral to our sound, and a pillar of all good improvised music. £5.
