Bristol European Jazz Ensemble is a world music ensemble made up of the 'wonderful Italian pairing' of Pasquale Votino on double bass and Paolo Adamo on drums, the lyrical alto sax of Frenchman Julien Alenda (influenced by Kenny Garrett and Canonball Adderly) and joined by keyboard player Anders Olinder. With ‘exceptional compositions’ trumpet player and part-Swiss leader David Mowat has forged a Bristol Sound which expresses the best of the European ideal. He draws from Brazilian street music, South African township, klezmer, South Asian folk music, Balkan and Middle Eastern music as well as modern jazz.

An amazing evening at Prema, taking a whistle-stop tour of myriad of musical influences but with a distinctive, smooth, jazzy vibe – join them at Prema on the evening that we will leave the European Union. Don’t miss their shockingly pertinent EuRIP - a spoken word and jazz story based on band-members' formative memories, in Switzerland Italy Sri Lanka and The Netherlands – the ensemble’s unique look at the interwoven fabric that is today's Europe, as Brexit threatens to tear it apart!
