Fresh from their 1st anniversary set, DIÁSPORA are set to raise the bar even higher (pun intended)! The DIÁSPORA return to Matt & Phred's for a sizzling, scorching friday night of Latin jazz.
Alice Zawadski - Lead Vocals
Luciano Gerber - Guest Vocals
Andrzej Baranek - Piano
Will McGee - Bass
Dave Simpson - Kit, Timbales
Owen Williams - Congas
Rosie Toll - Bongo, Bell, Guiro, Backing Vocals
Rory Duffy - Alto Saxophone, Flute, Backing Vocals
Olly Syrus - Tenor & Soprano Saxophones
Heider Nasralla - Trombone
Gavin Hubbard - Trumpet
The 11-piece line-up lends itself to a big band sound, without losing the dynamism and spark of a small group; and combines sensuous vocals, sophisticated horn lines and explosive percussion solos. With their vision to bring together the rhythms of the Americas, DIÁSPORA is one of the most exciting new projects to emerge on the UK Latin scene today.
'DIÁSPORA are a hugely talented and energetic band that blew the roof off Matt & Phred's on their first ever gig at the club. The band of eleven musicians has a great natural fusion, and the ease in which they commanded the stage was a joy to behold. This is a band we will definitely be booking again and again.'
