Ser O Jooni

Ser O Jooni is born from the fusion of two bands that are active participants in the Music Scene of Kathmandu: Jooni, made up of Abhisek Bhadra (Nepal) on Keyboard and singer Maria Fajardo (Spain), together with Chilean Band Ser O Duo, Tomas Carrasco on flute and Moa Edmunds on guitar. The collaboration, which began in 2020, consists of original compositions and arrangements that seek to reflect the roots as well as the personal musical findings of each and every one of its members. Their influences are as diverse as the musicians themselves: From jazz to world music, Latin-American folklore, all the way to rock and experimental music, with a sweet nudge of improvisation.

Valerie Chane Tef: Piano, Voice & Compositions, Franck Leymeregie: Percussion & Backing vocals, Benjamin Pellier: Bass & Backing vocals. This is “their sound”: the one that the three accomplices of AKODA have been refining for a decade, taking us enthusiastically into Creole ballads that make up their identity and their contagious joie de vivre. With their voices leading the way, they sing Reunionese, Guadeloupean, Martinique, or invented languages. It is a living tradition that the group reinvents and transmits to us with its jazz signature: beating hearts, dancing bodies, and present emotions.

Ser O Duo

Ser o Duo started their work in 2017 in Valparaiso, Chile. They have performed their music in Chile, Argentina, Colombia, India, Nepal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, and Turkey. With Tomas Carrasco on wind instruments and Moa Edmunds on acoustic guitar and electronics, the duo aims to use the possibilities given by a wide range of world flutes (silver flute, quenas, Bulgarian kaval, Indian bansuri, Turkish ney, ocarinas, among others) and a hybrid approach to the acoustic guitar (western classical and south-American with effects) for creating music openly and inclusively, weakening stylistic and cultural borders, where the strict structure of western classical music lives together with improvisation, modern approaches and concepts taken from a wide range of musical traditions.
