Win a duoticket for Gondwana 10 presents STUFF. + Portico Quartet + … on April 27 in AB. This competition ends wednesday April 17.
Founded in 2008, by Manchester-based trumpeter, composer and producer Matthew Halsall, Gondwana Records, turned 10 last year. Originally founded to shine a light on the Manchester scene, Gondwana Records is one of the UKs most influential jazz (and beyond) record labels, launching GoGo Penguin, Portico Quartet, Mammal Hands, Dwight Trible, Nat Birchall, Noya Rao, Phil France, John Ellis and recently our national heroes STUFF. His territory is the world and jazz is where it all starts.
The label will let perform great artists following its 10-year anniversary (27-4). They already performed in sold-out halls in London (Roundhouse), Manchester, Tokyo and Berlin. Up next? The amazing AB in Brussels, which is according to the label ‘one of our favourite venues’. With those sweet words, how can we refuse? and above all, our love is unconditionally for their label.
