Under The Surface was formed in 2015 and since then the band has enjoyed a great deal of international success. Drummer Joost Lijbaart recognized the group’s potential early on and organized more than 200 concerts in 25 countries on 4 continents: from Africa to South America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Inspired by their many travels and the cultures they encountered, the group developed a unique improvisation language that combines jazz, folk, ethnic and electronic music.
The improvisations of Under the Surface are far from abstract and sound as thoughtful compositions; Singer Sanne Rambag’s voice rhymes, whispers and sings over the melody lines of guitarist Bram Stadhouders and the subtle percussion of Lijbaart. The atmosphere arises out of silence and reveals the pure communion between the musicians.
The fully improvised concerts of Under the Surface continue to be an experience for both band and audience. This experience can be heard beautifully on the live album Trinity that was released in 2019.
