ENKI are a modern jazz quartet based in Manchester. Drawing on a wide range of influences from Alfa Mist to John Zorn, the four young musicians focus on spontaneity and synergy.
They have presented their original repertoire both in the UK and Luxembourg and have just released their debut EP The Keppel Road Session on MSC Records. Their 2020 Summer Tour is confirmed with gigs at the “Echterlive Festival” and Abbey Neimënster amongst others. ENKI Quartet played their debut gig in Soup Kitchen (Manchester) in May 2019. No later than July 2019, the four young musicians embarked on their first tour. Near his hometown in Luxembourg, David (drums) had managed to get three supporting gigs for the new edition of the Echternacher Festival, now called Echterlive and presenting artists like Donny McCaslin, Joachim Kühn and Joss Stone. After playing a total of 5 gigs in Luxembourg, it was clear to all of them that there was real potential here, given the organic musical connection they had been able to forge in such a short time.
