German jazz ensemble on tour across Canada

Supported by the Goethe-Institut

Subtone stands at the forefront of today's young innovative Jazz ensembles. Founded in 2005 in Berlin, its members now live on both sides of the Atlantic, in St. John's, Newfoundland, Berlin and Cologne. After more than 10 years of band history, numerous prizes and more than 300 performances all over the world, Subtone is certainly not just a short-term musical trend. Since its creation, the musicians impress with their emotional depth and musical substance, having already published four CDs, the most recent one, "Roswitha's Revenge", being released in February 2014 to much acclaim. In May 2018 the band will travel across Canada for two weeks to introduce their music to Canadian audiences for the first time.
