Latin Jazz – the name says it all. Founded in 2016, this six-piece ensemble, stages Caribbean rhythms, Latin American songs and lots of joy! The musicians share their love for this music, with contemporary arrangements of old traditional songs, they add a unique, personal and refreshing note. Six friends from different parts of the world, linked by music and an emotional bond, share their passion with the audience. A passion for playing, singing, laughing and – of course – dancing! Improvisation, in the Caribbean tradition of telling stories, sharing emotions through music, is an important and essential part of their music. Los Pipos is the joy of life, mixed with the deep musical talent of the musicians, which brings together the different influences and experiences of each of the group’s members.
Los Pipos have played at major festivals (North Sea Jazz Festival 2018, Jazz Schmiede 2019-2022, Dürener Jazztage 2018) and in 2021, they won the Dias Latinos Award in Amersfoort, Netherlands.
The Jury praised the exceptional choice of repertoire of tastefully arranged traditional pieces, alternated with surprising original compositions, all performed in a refined and different way. The ensemble consists of young technically gifted musicians who, each with their own strong identity, together form a cast-iron collective. Los Pipos seeks contact with the audience during their presentation and thereby radiates energy and playing pleasure.
