Press Text
Behind this Eastern European name lies a jazz quintet in the great tradition of musicians who literally live libertarian music.

At the crossroads of the Lounge Lizards’ New York underground and of Occitan reminiscences of Bernard Lubat, Papanosh is a house with wide open doors and windows!
On stage, the music, though already written, keeps creating and inventing...: it’s an acoustic directory in its raw sound and freedom, a demonstration of primitive energy where urban horns and birdsongs intertwine or merge. Papanosh’s second album, “Your Beautiful Mother” is at the image of the show, terribly alive and joyful! It has been selected by Citizen Jazz and classified four stars by Jazz Magazine.
Papanosh has received the Group and Composition Prizes of the National Jazz Competition of Paris la Defense in 2010 (2nd), and it is laureate of “Jazz Migration” for 2013.

... Close to Mingus, ARFI, Uzeste, and with a more contemporary sound (their own) at the same time, ambushed by zapping and perpetual recycling, Papanosh knows how to cultivate disorder without making a system of it, they know how to stimulate our appetite for surprises but can as well move us in a simple way ..." Vincent Cotro / Jazz Magazine / Jazzman

"...the emerging maturity has something absolutely delightful..." Franpi Barriaux / Citizen Jazz

"... 5 improvisers inhabited by an eccentric volubility and a deliciously cheeky imagination..." JazzAct
