Theo Pascal, bassist, composer and pioneer producer in the Jazz Lusophone scene, leads QUAMUNDOS2, a powerful collective made of Portuguese musicians with a heritage connection to several countries like Angola, Moçambique, Cabo Verde, India, S.tomé, etc. Featuring special guests: long-time collaborator and award-winning acclaimed singer-songwriter - Carmen Souza - on piano, Rhodes and vocals. Plus virtuoso Saxophonist Lenny Sendersky from St. Petersburg, based in Tel Aviv/Israel.
The first single - 'MUTEBASS' - will be out on Sep14 just before the premiere of the LIVE SHOW at the 33th Mercat de Musca Viva de Vic. About the song Theo Pascal says: " Mutebass was composed while doing an extensive tour in Africa. I developed the song around the many voices of the bass particularly the mute bass technic. Inspired by the images, colours and smells of Africa."
Quamundos, meaning - 'Union of People' - in kimbudo- Angolan dialect, envisions a World where differences are respected and valued, at a time where cohesion and humanity are so important.
This multicultural group is a musical locomotive of infectious grooves, unexpected arrangements and improvised curves.
