3 (trio) performers
Indoor and outdoor
stage/space of about 3x4 meters.
Sabana is a latin and gipsy jazz trio that with great passion does not leave the audience untouched with their sunny, melancholic and exhilarating music....
From different backgrounds but with the same passion, the chemistry between the three artists is complete...
This chemistry does not leave the audience unmoved and during the performance fervour and melancholy from Latin and gypsy music come together. This in beautiful songs temperamentally sung in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and Romanian. A musical fusion of vocals with the virtuoso guitar sounds, the rhythmic keyboard work on piano and the melodic accordion-playing.
Sabana plays its own arrangements of well-known and lesser known works with surprising improvisations in which the experience of the musicians with different musical styles does not go unnoticed.
The music of Sabana is suitable for in the background at for example receptions, dinners or for a listening audience in a theatre setting. But Sabana also takes your festive occasion to a higher level with the right alternation of romantic ballads with cheerful uptempo songs.
The sound volume can at any time be adjusted to the desired level, loud or less loud. We work with an in-ear system, so that we remain audible to each other and guests can continue to have a conversation without being drowned out by the music.
