Enea Besana Band

Since 2016 Swiss drummer Enea Besana is based in Amsterdam, where he formed his own band with international musicians: Karolis Sarkus (LT) on Tenor and Soprano saxophones, Santiago Von Sternenfels (MEX) on Alto saxophone and Flute, Aron Gunst (UNG) on piano, Gediminas Stepanavicius (LT) on double bass and himself on drums.

The music could be defined as some sort of modern jazz with various influences such as folk, rock, blues and soul. The repertoire is uniquely made up of Enea’s original compositions, inspired by the music he grew up with. The music the Enea Besana Band plays was born like this: listening back to nostalgic tapes from his childhood (which are also sampled into the music), and looking at old photo albums from his early years of life, Enea got inspired to write music that springs from his roots, and speaks his own history. Like this, the music Enea plays today with his band was born.
