Böhringer, Paz, Jimenez

Hery Paz & Kenneth Jimenez are both active members of the New York City avant-garde scene. Together they’ve performed with some of the most influential artists of this music, and they’re experiences have allowed them to create a voice of their own in the scene. They’ve worked in New York City with drummer Samir Böhringer, and now they’re getting together again, this time in Switzerland, to bring a set of new music that will work as a point of departure to explore new sonic possibilities for the ensemble.
