Hamburg-based jazz trio cnirbs are on a tour of seven different African countries with their new record Hey Kollege, and will play for the first time In Kenya on 18th October at the Goethe-Institut

The members of the CNIRBS Jazz Trio are keyboardist and composer Matthäus Winnitzki, drummer Konrad Ullrich and trumpet and euphonium player Stephan Meinberg. With their wild improvisations and complex rhythms, they never neglect to have some fun when playing live gigs. With their instruments, a panoply of wires, flashing little lights and mysterious foot pedals, with their verve and painstakingly-achieved lightness of touch and sound, CNIRBS delight old and new fans alike. Now they’re off on a tour of seven different African countries with their new record Hey Kollege and looking forward to garnering interesting impressions and new encounters. Although consummately trained on their respective instruments, the three “Cnirbse” routinely push the boundaries of jazz with their wild rhythms, undertaking brief musical forays into related genres. You can hear borrow¬ings from alternative rock in their music as well as electronic elements and influences from African and Caribbean music.
