The story

"Storytelling Jazz"

About Nikobo

The Nikobo Nordic Jazz Trio first played together by coincidence, during a fancy dinner party at the end of 2019. Musically they hit it off right away. At the beginning of 2020 they started experimenting with own compositions during rehearsals and small gigs. Due to this unconstrained start, having fun while making music has been (and still is!) the most important thing for Nikobo. "Playing for us means telling stories and going on an adventure together!" The result: Storytelling Jazz.

Jonas Nieuwenbroek (drums), Jurriaan de Kok (double bass) and Bas Boon (piano) share the need to tell stories with their music. Their compositions are built around recognizable motifs, which are further explored during improvisations. Atmosphere and dynamics play a big role so each time a song can go into a different direction. That’s the nice thing about Nikobo, each composition is a conversation and the conversation is never the same. During 2020 Nikobo performed at various venues and theatre’s in The Netherlands like TivoliVredenburg. They released the single "102", "The Long Road" and "Ocularia Solaria" this year. On December 9 they will release "Fading" at The Waalse kerk, Den Haag.
