Lovely melodies, composed with dedication, played in a fragile and intense, sophisticated and expressive way. All of this is surrounded by energetic grooves and melancholic sounds.
In summer 2015 this band was founded by saxophonist and composer Maximilian Shaikh- Yousef – winner of the Frankfurt Jazz Award 2018. His music represents a mixture of Arabic sounds, combined with elements of modern and contemporary jazz as well as classical literature. The distinct sound of the band is created through the musical signature of the composer and the individual approach of each of its members. In November 2019 Maximilian Shaikh-Yousef and his band won the Young Munich Jazz Award.
