Auditorio de Tenerife is putting on a jazz concert by Mikael Godée & Eve Beuvens Quartet (MEQ) this weekend. In the show, which is on at 8:00 pm on Saturday, the 30th at Sala de Cámara, the saxophonist and the pianist are presenting their new work with their band.

The ensemble is led by the Grammy-winner Swedish musician and the Belgian pianist. Their sound is characteristically elegant and melodic. The piano and soprano saxophone Will be accompanied by drummer Johan Birgenius, and double bass Magnus Bergström.

Mikael Godée and Eve Beuvens met a long time ago on the Myspace platform. Nine years later and after tens of concerts they are releasing their second record as a quartet: Looking Forward.

From the very beginning the two musicians naturally took to each other. They added bass player Magnus Bergström and Johan Birgenius at the drums, one of the best-liked rhythmic sections in Sweden, to set up the MEQ quartet.

The repertoire, surprisingly homogenous, consists of original themes by Godée and Beuvens. Through mutual trust shared by the four of them, they take on risks that make the music flow very naturally.  

Although their music draws on Nordic lyricism, it is also energetic, unique and warm: a stroll through a forest full of surprising colours in the Distant North.

Tickets are on sale via Auditorio de Tenerife’s usual channels: at the box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Saturday, except on holidays; via  or calling 902 317 327.
