Spinifex SOUFIFEX Live Zondag op Houtfestival in Haarlem
Hier alvast een voorproefje
"Alleszins een spetterend slot voor de meest indrukwekkende festivaldag die we in lange tijd beleefden… Het is een band van extreme contrasten, die zich het ene moment vrij beweegt, maar even abrupt en genadeloos toeslaat met ultrastrak samenspel…" aldus Guy Peters

Here's Ken Waxman's review of Spinifex CD 'Amphibian Ardour' on jazzword.com. "Multiphonic enough to nearly blast off into distant space ... changing trumpeters and adding a saxophonist has strengthened Spinifex’s game. Plus its all-encompassing joyous appeal is still maintained."

A review of the CD 'Amphibian Ardour' (Trytone Records) by Mario Biserni in the Italian Sands-Zine!
"... we appreciated the previous release of this international ensemble and I find even more exciting the new "Amphibian Ardour", a record that can satisfy more than one taste."

Spinifex is getting ready to present the new SOUFIFEX project. Premiere at MOERS FESTIVAL, May 19th and 20th! Try-outs at Space is the Place (Café de Ruimte, Amsterdam) on 17 May and Paviljoen Ongehoorde Muziek, Eindhoven on 18 May. The Dutch premiere is on June 17 at Houtfestival, Haarlem.
In 2017, we adapted two pieces and recorded them for the CD ‘Amphibian Ardour’: a Sufi traditional of Kurdish/Iranian origin, and a Qawali traditional from Pakistan. We liked this music so much that we decided to create a whole project, SOUFIFEX, dedicated to music inspired by Sufi traditions, combining adaptations of traditionals with new compositions by Tobias Klein, Gonçalo Almeida and Jasper Stadhouders.
In October we will record this music for a new album, to be released in December.
SOUFIFEX is kindly supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Norma Fonds.

A review of 'Amphibian Ardour' on Vital Weekly. “Spinifex once more proves to be a very good-oiled machinery. Their playing is very tight and together. The eastern-flavoured compositions fit well in their repertoire.”

Coen de Jonge, Jazzism, about the new Spinifex cd 'Amphibian Ardour': "Dat globalistische karakter van de groep komt ook tot uiting in de muziek; nog sterker dan voorheen is hun vrije jazzopvatting gekleurd door klanken met een Iraanse en Pakistaanse oorsprong ... de muziek die de groep hier presenteert: ongebonden, vrij, wars van grenzen en geborneerde opvattingen."
"... the music presented here: uninhibited, unconfined, free of boundaries and narrow-minded ideas."

A great review by Rui Eduardo Paes on jazz.pt. Thank you Rui!
"...but it is the variety of approaches that makes this fifth title of the band one of the most captivating. Always in the stream of connections between rigorous collective work and abrasive, urgent solos, raucous at times, but full of intention. Spinifex continues to be one of the most interesting musical proposals that have appeared in recent times and seem to be far from exhausting the chosen formula - on the contrary, because Maris and Dikeman renewed it."

A review by Eyal Hareuveni on salt-peanuts.eu Thank you for the kind words Eyal! "But you can always say that only working bands as Spinifex can reach such high and tight levels of communication and sonic scope and Spinifex has been working, and working hard since 2005."
Tomorrow (2 February) Spinifex plays at KOER in Gent.
