© 2019 Guy Salamon

The award winning Guy Salamon group presents a highly energetic and eclectic new program of all original composition written by leader and drummer Guy Salamon. With musical influences from Charles Mingus, Reinier Baas, Balkan gypsy, modern film music, Frank Zappa and many others, this group's music is here to express love and happiness while still attempting to portray the many contrasts and conflicts of modern society. After a season of festivals and concerts this passed summer of 2018, the band is now in the making of their debut album “Talk to Strangers”, focusing on their own sound, merging happy and energetic rhythms with melancholic yet whacky melodies, mixing laughter with noise, chaos with silence. The songs are often written about social matters such as gender inequality, addictions, social alienation... and yet sometimes about nothing at all. The Guy Salamon group consists of band members from Israel, Catalonia, Denmark, The Netherlands, South Korea, Scotland, Portugal and Mexico.

GUY SALAMON - DRUMS

"This quintet's has been described as disarmingly honest, spatial and somehow rebellious. The compositions, playing and singing depict wide colorful harmonies and the constant presence of improvisation, inevitably accompanied by the rhythms and lyricism of Latin American culture..."

GUY SALAMON - DRUMS

"Sinking into the music of PAAPRIKA is like diving into a clear blue sea and finding it’s far deeper and stranger than you’d expected. The strong currents of the luminous shallows carry you far below into opaque depths where gigantic, plain coloured shapes linger in something very close to silence."

TEIS SEMEY - GUITAR

XAVI TORRES - PIANO

BRODIE JARVIE - BASS

GUY SALAMON - DRUMS

"Turbulent but propulsive grooves, surprising turns and strong interplay; convincing listeners that this art form is alive, important and as relevant as ever. Teis Semey’s compositions have purpose and thought behind them, evoking a fiery sensation in listeners..."
