Experimental curiosity across genres
Pimpono Ensemble is a Polish-Danish-Norwegian jazz group formed in 2014 in Copenhagen by Szymon Gąsiorek.
The band has a playful approach to free jazz, mixing brass band sounds and experimental curiosity with punk rock energy, lyrical melodies, and noise infused with a tight collective discipline.
Their youthful and idealistic values are conveyed with attention to detail on the debut album Hope Love Peace Faith (2016) and confronted with the challenge of survival and existence in the world on the follow-up Survival Kit (2020).
Pimpono Ensemble has toured Denmark, Germany, and Poland and performed at festivals such as Jazz Jamboree, Jazz Jantar, Mózg Festival, Arhythmic Perfection Plan, Warsaw Summer Jazz Days, Copenhagen Jazz Festival, International Jazz Platform, and Jazz Goes To Town.
