Saxophonist Kika Sprangers considers her quintet a band of five leaders, characterized by their gutsy playing. They colour Kika’s narrative compositions and there is plenty of mutual challenge and inspiration. The new album Mind’s Eye is therefore an ode to the power of imagination and a new contribution to Kika’s artistic search for what makes us human. For the compositions Kika worked one-on-one with her band members on sketches and then polished and refined them into finished compositions. This amazing interaction shows on stage during what will undoubtedly be an adventurous set at So What’s Next.
Kika Sprangers Quintet will be performing on the So What’s Next Festival Night – Saturday, 29 October
