DROOG5 is a jazzy ensemble playing groovy and colourful compositions
on the edge of Jazz & World Music with a touch of Classical Music,
a real ‘ Worldy Cross-over' .
The band plays a variated repertoire of mainly original compositons
by the members of the band, with rhytmical grooves in which the
arrangements of the soprano sax and cello play an important part.
A proper and original sound with influences from all the corners of the world.
