Aronas

51pgt3nagml_aa240_.jpgI love festivals, the diversity, the exposure to new sounds and the pleasant surprises. Furthermore, music from ‘down under’ always alerts me and I was glad to witness The Aronas at the Roskilde festival. NZ born and Sydney based Jazz pianist Aron Ottignon is only 24. Then there are some of Australia’s finest muscians; Drummer Evan Mannell , bassist Dave Symes and percussionist Josh Green.

Its all about rhythm that is insistent, pulsating and gets you dancing. The aronas make ”Silvery piano melodies, thumping bass riffs, rolling rhythms, and spiky, sometimes ferocious percussion breaks”(Jessica Nichols The Age). For these reasons alone, they are worth voting for on their myspace site, so they will visit your city sometime soon.
