They call themselves an unusual jazz trio, but Kapok is more than that. It is one of the most prominent bands in the contemporary Dutch indie music scene. Just take their instrumentation – there is no bass. Remco Menting sounds unlike any other drummer on his self-designed drum kit. Timon Koomen's guitar brings strange soundscapes to life. But the trio's most unexpected member is the french horn. Morris Kliphuis, a Save the French Horn ambassador, is one of the world's few jazz French horn players. He sings, tears and plays offbeat on his horn, as if it has been especially made for Kapok. The band, makes its festival debut at this performance, and presents new work which includes electronics for the first time.
