AMBERGRIS | PAULA BILÁ QUARTET | aanvang 20.00 uur

Zondag 24 apr. 2022 - 20:00 uur - € 10,00


Ambergris (uncountable noun) is a grease-like substance of the sperm whale's digestive tract that is used in the finest perfumes.
Ambergris is chosen here as this quartet's name as a metaphor of the product of the creative process of an artist, who is someone who can draw from a stock of experiences and emotions, collected throughout life, and create beauty out of it. The compositions performed by the band are a result of that process, they are ambergris themselves, a chaotic mass of stories, digested and reshaped into music. The band members have forged their special artistic and human bond through their long lasting experience together in several other bands active in the Dutch music scene.

Their self-titled debut album was recorded in April 2021 and will be released as vinyl and in digital form (ZenneZ Records) in May 2022. Their first single "Povero Diavolo" is already out and available on all platforms.

Nicolò Ricci - tenor saxophone
Sun-Mi Hong - drums
Alessandro Fongaro - double bass
