Cubop City Big Band is one of Europe's splashiest Latin jazz formations. The band, founded by drummer and percussionist Lucas van Merwijk, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2020. Van Merwijk has been voted best drummer in the jazz and world/fusion categories several times by readers of the Dutch magazine for percussionists, Slagwerkkrant. At NN North Sea Jazz, the band will collaborate with pianist, composer, and arranger Randal Corsen from Curacao. Corsen is one of the most important musicians from the Netherlands Antilles and has worked with big names like Roy Hargrove and Paquito D'Rivera. Special guest Dibo D is one of the most popular young singer-songwriters among Antilleans. Cubop City Big Band & Randal Corsen ‘Antillean Salsa’ is a real treat for audiences: a selection of versatile and swinging pieces from the Antillean repertoire.
