Concert promoting the latest album titled Sambalanço by Krzysztof Pełech & Robert Horna duo in Wrocław’s Club PROZA in March!
A combination of original samba, bossa nova, tango and improvised smooth jazz arrangements and a wealth of beautiful melodies, harmonies and rhythms - this is what has become Krzysztof Pełech & Robert Horna Duo’s trademark. Their latest album titled Sambalanço, to be released at the end of April/beginning of May 2017, captures the same stylistic fusion and ambience and includes compositions by, among others: Pat Metheny, Ralph Towner, Astor Piazzolla, as well as original arrangements of music by Celso Machado and Aziza Mustafa Zadeh. You will have the opportunity to listen to these compositions performed live by the duo during their concert on March 18 at 7 p.m. in Club PROZA in Wrocław, preceded by a solo half recital by young and talented guitarist Nel Maślanka from Wrocław.
