    22 February 19:30 - 23:30
  • Under the Surface is a new Dutch trio who met in 2015 as an
    initiative of the Dutch foundation Beaux Jazz which offers young
    talents artistic support. The young singer Sanne Rambags come
    up with an adventurous group together with guitarist Bram
    Stadhouders and drummer Joost Lijbaart.
    Their debut album was released in March 2017 on the Dutch label
    Challenge Records and got great reviews. The universal language
    in their music brought the group to major festivals in Mali, Mexico, China, Norway, India and the Netherlands.

    Drummer Joost Lijbaart (Amsterdam 1967) belongs to the top of
    the Dutch jazz scene, Bram Stadhouders (Tilburg 1987) is one of the most promising new young musicians in the European
    improvisation circuit and he received many awards and Sanne
    Rambags (Tilburg 1994) is one of the few singers of her generation who is able to improvise in a very open way, sometimes with self-written texts and poems, sometimes by
    positioning herself completely between the musicians. This gives her voice an instrumental function which is beautifully in line with the open group sound and the playing of Lijbaart and
    Under the Surface is a unique trio of three musicians from different generations who have found each other in a common urge to search for space and silence through improvisation.

    An extraordinary and thrilling combination. Dutch vocalist Sanne
    Rambags is a storyteller who balances between magic and reality. (Erno Elzinga – Jazzenzo)

    The listener gets enchanted by the beautiful and exact playing.
