Three generations of unique Dutch musicians find each other in a common urge to improvise in which aesthetics, poetry, and ensemble play have a major role. The listener is taken to an almost dreamlike new reality. 

Under the Surface is a new Dutch band formed by drummer Joost Lijbaart (1967), guitarist Bram Stadhouders (1987) and vocalist Sanne Rambags (1994).  Their debut album, released on Challenge Records in 2017, was nominated for an Edison.

The improvisations of Under the Surface are far from abstract and sound like thoughtful compositions; Rambag’s voice rhymes, whispers, and sings over the melody lines of Stadhouders and the subtle percussion of Lijbaart. The atmosphere is made out of silence and reveals the pure kindred spirit of communion between the musicians.

The universal language of music took the group to major festivals around the world; in Africa, South America, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. The fully improvised concerts of Under the Surface continue to be an experience for both the band and the audience. This experience can be heard beautifully on the live album Trinity which was released in 2019.

 … Improvised music on high-level … “(Music frames, Mattie Poels)

… An elusive way of improvising … “(Coen de Jonge, Jazzism **** 1/2 *)
