Drummer Guy Salamon from Israel has worked with Jesse van Ruller, Reinier Baas, Jasper Blom and Tineke Postma. Salamon grew up in Jerusalem and moved to the Netherlands in 2014 to continue his studies at the Amsterdam Conservatoire. With his 8-piece Guy Salamon Group, he produced the debut album Unfollow the Leader full of self-written compositions. The group is sometimes reminiscent of groups like the Willem Breuker Kollektief and Charlie Haden’s Music Liberation Orchestra, but at the same time integrates influences from Charles Mingus and Frank Zappa. The second album Creatures! Creatures! has just been released. With his group, including guitarist Teis Semey, Salamon will play the new pieces live on So What’s Next.
Guy Salamon Group will be performing on the So What’s Next Festival Night – Saturday, 29 October
