coming to Japan :

” We wish to give and present our music in Japan , meet and play with artists from visual art and dance , get inspired by different aspects of the culture, the lands and express in performances and in a recording. The idea is to work around Shade , shades of color, mouvment and sound. We wish to create a link between people met from playing in Japan together and in a second time invite them to perform in europe.

To reach these wishes we propose :

concerts in trio
concerts in trio inviting visual artist (Zoé Schellenbaum) and dance (Kana Nakamura)
residence and recording of the 3rd album in 4te (trio and Magic Malik)
concerts in quartet”
