Idema/Serierse Quartet

About

In this quartet, guitarist Gijs Idema and vocalist Anna Serierse look for new ways of using the guitar and voice together. Seen from a more sound based angle they thrive for a unique blend between the two instruments, supported by the steady foundation of Cas Jiskoot on the double bass and Tim Hennekes on drums. This quartet is described as a unity that paints in broad strokes with a strong sense for freedom, melody, rhythm and form. In january 2020 they recorded their debut album in the beautiful Fattoria Musica studio in Osnabruck (DE). On this cd they will present their own compositions, written while both studying abroad. You hear the calmness and serenity of Trondheim, and the hustle and bustle of New York.

The quartet has played together for five years and performed at venues and festivals like Bimhuis, Paradox, Jazzfest and Grachtenfestival. They are also the winners of Keep an Eye The Records 2019. Where they will present their debut album in November 2020.
