Lupa Santiago Quintet – Denmark tour 2012

September 21st, 2012 · Concerts

In september my friend, Brazilian guitarist, Lupa Santiago came to Denmark to play a few gigs. The group featured Pekka Pylkkanen (F) on sax, Niclas Campagnol on drums, Andreas Hatholt on bass and myself behind the keys.
We played two concerts; one at Metronomen in Copenhagen and one at the Aarhus Center For Contemporary Art.

The repertoire included a few Brazilian standards as well as some original compositions. The band sounded great and I’m sure that we’ll be playing together again sometime soon!
