Here is an event you do not want to miss this week. This Saturday, October 6, Squid in Chains performs for a live concert in Zigzagger. So … Smile!
With a subtle blend of jazz and world music, the trio Squid in Chains take us to a trip in a dream country where jazz tunes mix with drums from Orient, and Colombian rhythms. More than just a musical encounter between three brilliant instrumentalists (Douglas, Felipe, Keith), Squid in chains takes its audience to an imaginary world where music is the echo of a world believing in the virtues of exchange, meeting, and sharing.
