Ben LaMar Gay Ensemble
Elusive sound wizard from the adventurous scene of Chicago in the Bimhuis. Ben LaMar Gay has his own unique style that he calls 'Pan-American' and in which jazz and electronics go together with influences from blues, r&b, hip-hop, raga, Tropicália and contemporary classical. Using his own voice and cornet playing as a basis, he builds colorful productions that can sound radical on the one hand and warm and inviting on the other. On stage this can go in any direction, thanks to the close, intuitive collaboration with his band members.
