Anniversary On the Roof summer concerts
The pianist Juan Pablo Dobal, born in Argentina, opens the anniversary with a solo performance. Dobal has been playing tango with Carel Kraayenhof for decades and has collaborated with Omar Mollo, Fernando Lameirinhas and Eric Vloeimans, among many others. Viola player Oene van Geel was already regularly seen with On The Roof, in groups such as Zapp and Estafest.
In the brand new Untraveled Land he plays with another welcome guest, Nawras Altaky, who is known for his enchanting improvisations on the ud, the Arabic lute. Untraveled Land is based on the narrative power of music. Explosive passages, a long tension, silence: there is room for everything. The group also consists of cellist Annie Tangberg and saxophonist Koen Boeijinga.
