TEATRE COMUNAL D'ANDORRA LA VELLA
WaaX Jazz Band
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
The Andorra Sax Fest with the partnership of the Embassy of France in Andorra present the performance of WaaX Jazz Band on May 11, at 21h, at the Teatro Comunal de Andorra la Vella.
The French jazz quintet WaaX Jazz Band was created in 2018 under the initiative of saxophonist Raphael Illes. In addition to saxophonist Raphael Illes, who was the driving force behind the formation, the group is made up of Remi Vignolo, on drums, Samuel Hubert, on bass, Martin Ferreyros, on guitar and Emmanuel Duprei, on keyboard, all from jazz backgrounds. From the beginning, his intention has always been to explore a decidedly more electric and urban sound. After doing a two-month residency at the club “Gare Jazz Paris”, a stop at the “Morty Jazz Festival” and the “Jazz à Vialas Festival” in 2019, they plan to release their first album this year. The band is heavily influenced by Weather Report as well as Coltrane and David Bowie, among others.
