Alba Careta Group
The Alba Careta Group is a very energetic project, innovative but sensitive, formed by musicians from the Amsterdam jazz scene and students from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam (where they met). The main repertoire of this band are Alba’s compositions, where you can find from aggressive and fast tunes to delicate and sensible songs, making the perfect set for a performance. Her main inspirations are well known musicians from the current jazz scene like: Ambrose Akinmusire, Tigran Hamasyan or Omer Avital. In addition, the Alba Careta Group also perform Catalan folk songs sung by their leader, in order to have the perfect show for all kind of audiences. This band toured in Catalonia during last January, has been coached by musicians like Ben Wendel and arrived at the final of the Leiden Jazz Award 2019.

Het Conservatorium van Amsterdam barst van jonge, bevlogen musici die allerlei interessante initiatieven ontplooien. In mei en juni besteedt het Bimhuis elke dinsdag vanaf 22:00 aandacht aan bijzondere talenten uit deze jazzgeneratie van morgen. 
Elke avond komen twee bands of solisten voor het voetlicht.
