The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - Here Be Dragons

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble (TKDE) formed in 2000 as a project to compose new music for existing silent movies. Jason Köhnen and Gideon Kiers, both graduates of the Utrecht School of Arts. In 2004, British trombonist Hilary Jeffery and Swiss cellist Nina Hitz joined TKDE to record the amazing self-titled debut album which was released on Planet Mu Records in May 2006. The ensuing tour saw Eelco Bosman and Paris based vocalist Charlotte Cegarra join, forming the Ensemble into a sextet. London based violinist Sadie Anderson joined in 2008 to supply the group with extra power on stage. Their music cannot really be placed in one genre. They combine traditional instruments with some electronics and improvisation; the result is a fusion of jazz, dark-jazz, classical and experimental music. This is their most recent album. Awesome!
