With a name that’s defined as “ring” or “loop” in Spanish or working on the land in Greek, the six-piece Euro-Canadian Aros combo sees itself as the globalized wave of the future, musical division.

In fact, it’s an amalgamation of males and females featuring a London-based Pakistani/Scottish violinist and a Canadian-born and based trumpeter, plus a Scottish percussionist, a German bassist, an Austrian pianist and a Canadian reedist -- all of whom live in Holland. Brought to the combo is experience in classical, pop, theatrical, improvised and ethnic sounds. MORE
