In the age of musical and cultural multiplicity keyboardist, pianist and composer Manu Koch has created the platform Filtron M to present his blend of sounds with a wide range of extraordinary musicians. A New York resident since 2000 he has toured internationally with Afro Pop icon Angélique Kidjo, the New York Gypsy All-Stars, collaborated on projects with Miles Davis/Santana bassist Benny Rietveld and since 2011 has become a vital element in various productions by singer/songwriter/guitarist Tomás Doncker.
Filtron M’s first recording Mandatory Underground is released on Doncker’s True Groove label and showcases the band units Unique Afrique and Astoria Roots. The latter will be featured at this CD Release Party which includes bassist Panagiotis Andreou, drummer Mauricio Zottarelli and percussionist Sebastian Nickoll, who collectively have worked with artists such as Hiromi, Esperanza Spalding, Lee Ritenour, Eliane Elias, Wayne Krantz, Now vs Now, Pedrito Martinez Group, Ralph Irizarry & Timbalaye and many more.
Chilean vocalist/guitarist Camila Meza and kanun master Tamer Pinarbasi from Turkey will join the Astoria Roots unit and promise an exciting night of eclectic music.
