The acclaimed Israeli bass player, composer and producer Liran Donin (LedBib, Polar Bear, Mulatu Astatke, The Unthanks, Chrissie Hynde and many more) leading a terrific two sax quintet. Featuring some of UK's most exciting musicians, Chris Williams (Let Spin) alto sax, Josh Arcoleo (Native Dancer)  tenor sax, Maria Chiara Argiro (These New Puritans) piano and Ben Brown (Waaju)  drums  Liran brings the double bass to the forefront and directs the music from there, with his distinctive powerhouse grooving.  But there's also melodic and contemporary indie folk like music to be found here, casting these five musicians in an highly original intriguing new light. Together they are striking a perfect balance between composition and improvisation and present this highly energetic and unique jazz outfit whilst drawing on influences from Donins’ musical background and inspirations, from across Sub- Saharan Africa, Jewish Ladino and travel back all the way to simple folk songs and raw Americana.
