"Listen to the Coltranesque sound of Iman Spaargaren, which is really molded into his own voice, to the quirky and humorous art of improvisation by Guillermo Cerano and to the overwhelming percussion rummage of Marcos Baggiani. 
Here, the present and the future are safeguarded"
Rinus van der Heijden, || 2019

Antimufa's release show last June was a serious business (not to say a blast!).

A full house at the Bimhuis and an engaged audience were the perfect ingredients for a focused and pristine concert.

The new album Grillos features Martín Sued, a master improviser and virtuoso bandoneon player from Buenos Aires.

Antimufa music is now digitally distributed by Audio Maze.

You can listen to it here or get the CD here.


The Ambush Party  is playing their unique discombobulated Cumbia at Bimhuis, closing the 3rd day of the 12 points festival in Amsterdam.

“…refined soundscapes treated in such a way that a delicious, almost non-abstract happiness remains.” Jazzism ****1/2 Ken Vos #01- 2019


Lili & Marleen is a beautiful continuation of a discography that these gentlemen can be proud of.
The new album, which is released by the Portuguese label Clean Feed, elaborates on previous work, but it all sounds more intense, compact and mature.
The trio is perfectly capable of turning inside out a famous song like Lili Marleen (the WW II classic ‘Lili Marleen’)...
  JazzFlits, Herman Te Loo, NL


The sound of the trio is almost like their presence itself, deeply human. Together, they create a unique music world in which we can trip through time amid our own emotions”  Sightsong, (JP)


“Their catchy tempos and deep melodic reveries present an approachable demeanour, but it isn’t long before wild divergences and curious eruptions of volatility take over, leaving a paradoxical amalgamation of just what is what. The resulting confusion is the source of this album’s charm.The perpetual challenge of reconciling the embraceable passages with those more abrupt and acerbic is a limitless source of fun and intrigue” Birth is the worm, D Sumner, (U.S.A).


“This is smart and interesting music. Modern jazz with a very open perspective.
The three artists meet for a wonderful journey through the land of music, touching on a number of musical influences through their compositions, and adding joyous improvisations welcoming other cultures and people and sounds into their idiom. The music is genre-bending, with little tunes and compositions that sound vaguely familiar, as if taken from our common unconscious and reformatted into something more modern and exciting.”
 Free jazz Blog ****1⁄2 Stef Gijssels, Jan 2019 (BE)


“You hear 3 sound magicians who, to their heart's content, search for the unexplored areas, looking for the ultimate structures that can give them and the listener the necessary pleasure. Anyone who has already wandered around the labyrinths of these borderline sound manipulators should definitely experience the band live. Let's talk jazz G T Briquet. Dec 2018, (BE)


“Playful and capricious. Marcos Baggiani, Guillermo Celano and Joachim Badenhorst work together on a unique balance of composition and improvisation that feels as recognisable as strange. That in turn ensures that you, as a listener, are also forced to keep on raising your ears and discovering that special synergy.” Enola - Guy Peters - 11 jan 2019


“Playful Jazz from Amsterdam.
The music was eclectic and postmodern and the result was a quite blatantly applause. Some compositions come from their own pen, while others are finely crafted from pieces by such diverse authors as Misha Mengelberg or the modern classic György Ligeti.
Conclusion: A fine, in the best sense entertaining concert with musicians, which you will surely hear in the next years at the big European festivals”
