Baraná Quintet »
Since 2002, Baraná has gained international praise with a mix of Turkish tradition, exciting new compositions and playful Dutch improvisation. An interesting feature of Baraná is the broad taste of the leaders Behsat Üvez and Steven Kamperman. Their basic ingredients may be Turkish and Dutch, the resulting flavours surpass all categories. Especially striking is the exciting communication between the musicians. The music can go anywhere anytime. Baraná performs in various configurations. In Baraná Quintet, Üvez and Kamperman meet with virtuoso accordeonist Bart Lelivelt, German bass player and improviser Meinrad Kneer and drummer Sebastian Demydczuk from Poland. Magic songs and spectacular grooves go along with teasing improvisations .
