Musician

Nebula

Nebula is a young band from Groningen, The Netherlands, playing entirely improvised music. The quartet likes to dive into the alchemy of sounds and discover new possibilities within the realm of instant composing. The band got together whilst studying Jazz at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen, with the desire to improvise without any rules or restrictions. Letting go of the concepts and ideals they were taught enabled them to cultivate their own sound. Naturally, the focus of Nebula has always been live shows. The purpose of the band is to go into a new auditory universe, bringing their audiences with them. Describing their sound can be quite difficult because of the eclectic and ever-changing character of the music

Musician

Felipe Mendoza

Born:

Músico nacido el 23 de Mayo de 1988. Su incursión a la música no es la usual. A pesar de estar inmerso en ella desde pequeño con los discos de música clásica, boleros, música colombiana y demás que había en su casa y de tomar ocasionalmente clases de piano y guitarra en escuelas de barrio, no descubre el jazz, específicamente a John Scofield, hasta cuando entró a la universidad estudiando otra carrera. En el 2009 conoce al maestro Óscar Acevedo quien por un tiempo le ofrece guía en el género, y que posteriormente le presenta al maestro Enrique Mendoza, con quien estudia durante la mayor parte de su carrera en la Javeriana, iniciada en el año 2012
