Spinifex is an international quintet operating in Amsterdam. In this year's JGTT Spinifex reveals its two sides. The first is a performance building on oriental, especially Sufis traditional music and combining it with compositions methods from jazz avantgarde. Spinifex Soufifex's music is an expressive mixture of energetic jazzcore and hypnotic oriental melodies. One can notice both the urgency of anarchy and the elegance of jazz rock. The second side to this band will be introduced in Saturdays' line up under the name of Spinifex Maximus/ The band will perform alongside a further six-player wind instrument section featuring the greatest Czech jazz musicians of mid and young generations.
