A Jazz quartet which has been performing in and around Germany, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and France since its founding in 1995. The group is composed of musicians from American(USA) and European origins. Fuasi Abdul-Khaliq plays saxophone, clarinet, flute and percussion. He comes from Los Angeles, California where he studied composition, arranging and performance in the U.G.M.A.A. Foundation (Union of God's Musicians and Artist Ascension) with "Horace Tapscott and the Pan-African Peoples Arkestra".
Together they have created a unique sound which is identifiable from the first notes they play. Their music comes from the influences of "Blues", "Hard Bop", "Eastern", "African" and "Funk" which creates a music full of spirit, depth and energy. The CDs "Fuasi & Ensemble ", "Fuasimodo Rings A Bell“ , "Fuasi & Ensemble Live at Café Central in Madrid Spain" and “The Afro-Cubano Latin Jazz Connection” , all from their "live" performances, are proof that this group is worth listening to "Live and in Living Color „. The latest CD, “The Abakuá” is the first CD production in the last 5 CD productions that Fuasi had recorded in a proper studio setting.www.fuasi.com
