Sabir is the first recording of the band 'Free Humans' central project of the Copenhagen based,
Italian bass player and composer Luca Curcio.
The band gathers some of the most adventurous and unique young voices on the contemporary Jazz and World Music scene in Europe, featuring the legendary Sardinian saxophone player and multi instrumentalist Gavino Murgia.
The music of Sabir has been inspired by the name of the ancient Mediterranean ‘Lingua Franca’, a
mix of all the different languages spoken by the seamen, thanks to which the all the people of the sea could communicate and share news, goods, songs and customs.
Just like the language, the music played by the Free Humans is made by echoes, reminiscences and forms from different worlds and cultures, relating and talking to each other through the sensibility of the members of the band.
Each one of them contributed to the playful compositions written by Luca with his own heritage of traditions and music : Gavino with his megalithic sound from the heart of Sardinia, Simone with the voice of the Alps and his electronics landscapes, Enrico with the refined and elegant sound of the classical guitar and Ruben with the black grooves of the great African-American tradition..
Between jazz, world music, electronic and much more, Sabir is the tale of a journey into places,
stories, and faces, with its jumping between the present and an imaginary reality where the
concept of border doesn’t exist.
