HUPATA!!! It's a constellation of three voices from three different continents. Saxophone, piano and percussion are followed by a wonky, wobbly, rickety, going hog wild wagon filled with toys, which transform and take shapes of birds, elephants, camels, taking you for a journey into places that you might have heard about, or that you've never even imagined. Ada Rave from Argentina, Marta Warelis from Poland and Yung-Tuan Ku from Taiwan met each other in the playground of vibrant Amsterdam improvised scene, and have been working together since October 2016. Incorporating elements of humor they explore improvisation in it's purest form, mixing strong melodies and noise with big dose of space, silences, lyricism ethnic rhythms, sometimes going into meditative states where time dissolves into breathing cycles and tides of the sea.
Hupata currently is working on its first album release:)

Recorded on October 12th 2017. Bimhuis Radio, Amsterdam Hupata!: Ada Rave - Saxophone Marta Warelis - Piano Yung-Tuan Ku - Percussion
