The Dutch jazz-folk string quartet ‘North Sea String Quartet’ and Canarian composer & guitarrist Javier Infante present Electric Amazigh, in a vibrant & unique collaboration in which acoustic & electric sounds converge. By means of eight fascinating pieces written by Javier Infante, influences of North-African music (berbers), sephardic songs and contemporary jazz, blend. Moreover, the Dutch quartet push the rhythmic character of these by virtue of their strong pulsating & innovative percussive sounds. At times, it seems as if there is a drum kit in the hall. The extensive electric guitar & strings give rise to a strong creative & experimental spirit, interspersing beautiful melodies with powerful rhythmic passages. 

Established in Holland since the year 2016, the North Sea String Quartet is not an ordinary string ensemble. In spite of their classical formation, they share an untiring curiosity to delve into varied styles & genres. Their compositions feature Latin folklore, African & Canarian influences, as well as classical music and jazz. Improvisation is the core element of the ensemble while at the same time exploring creative & innovative forms of playing their respective instruments. In their artistic career path they have performed at important music festivals & halls throughout Holland, Germany & Spain. Noteworthy among their most recent collaborations is The Brazil String Connection with the Brazilean vocalist Lilian Vieira and Songs for Flying with the American blues singer Roland Satterwhite.

Javier Infante, born in Gran Canaria, has a number of albums released as leader, co-leader & accompanist, achieving the nomination as ‘Best Jazz Album’ with his work Solo Session at the Independent Music Awards in Spain. Having been on several world tours, his music draws from influences of Canarian folklore, flamenco, African, jazz, the tradition of classical European music and unrestricted improvisation.
