Melquiadès 4tet Short Info

Melquiadès quartet is a very personal reading of the character Melquiadès, in ” Hundred years of solitude ” the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquès. This ageless prophet never stopped with its clan to travel the world, in search of new improbable inventions that he made his own…

Just like in Garcia Marquez’s book, where several esthetics overlaps, this musical formation juggles permanently between folklores, compositions and free improvisations. The musicians of Melquiadès are all originally from western culture, understanding the improvisation jazz, the sonic universes of rock and electronic music, classical and contemporary music.

Over the years, they integrated together new musical materials, new modes, rhythms, stemming from Romania, Ethiopia, Turkey, Argentina … Little by little, original works stemming from this interbreeding were born and MatiaLevréro became the main composer of the group.
