Adriano Adewale

Primary Instrument: Percussion

Throw aside preconceived musical prejudices, abandon all attempts to catalogue: a rich chemistry of cultural influences is at work in when the Adriano Adewale Group stop onto the stage. Rooted in the musical traditions of Nigeria, Angola and Brazil and infused with contemporary European classical and jazz styles, their debut album SEMENTES is a colourful cocktail of infectiously funky rhythms and intimate soulful ballads peppered with free-jazz improvisation.
