NATIVE ALIENS ENSEMBLE
Native Aliens Ensemble is a group of 8 musicians dedicated to playing composed music using elements of Brazilian popular music combined with free improvisation.
The group was created by Renato Musica (Br), composer and multi-instrumentalist. He studied contemporary composition at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague, in the Netherlands.
For this project he puts in action a mix of influences of Brazilian, European and Dutch sources: from Louis Andriessen to Alban Berg, passing through Hermeto Pascoal and Egberto Gismonti.
All those influences blend together with Amsterdam’s effervescent scene of improvised music to create a unique and explosive musical group.
