Pangea Ultima


Biography Pangea Ultima



Pangea Ultima
The band’s name refers to the supercontinent, which will possibly arise in some million years: at that stage all of today's continents will melt into a single entity and all territorial borders will be overcome. If humanity should still exist in this distant future, this band’s music would be its soundtrack.

The music of this project uses jazz as a language to make the overcoming of cultural borders audible. Through a blend of original African grooves, Western harmony, Indian sound aesthetics and Latin American temperament, the band’s sound forms a universal world music. As a composer and bandleader I express my bicultural German-Mexican identity and convert authentic material which I have experienced and collected during my musical travels in Africa, India and Latin America. The band gathers the most outstanding instrumentalists of Cologne's jazz- and world-scene. Pangea Ultima is the winner of the competition "Jazztube 2016".
