Djabe stood on stage with a new line-up in autumn, 2016. Péter Kaszás (drums), János Nagy (keyboard), Áron Koós-Hutás (trumpet), Tamás Barabás (bass guitar) and Attila Égerházi (guitar) made New Dimensions Update Live, an album released on CD and master tape in January, LP in May. The MOMkult gig is about the abovementioned album.
After the break the line-up of the very succesful 4-country tour of June steps on stage: Djabe with Steve Hackett & Gulli Briem. The extended line-up presents the studio album Djabe & Steve Hackett: Life Is A Journey – The Sardinia Tapes. Recordings took place in summer, 2016 at the island of Sardinia, resulting in an album of magical atmosphere, with Tamás Barabás at the helm of the band. The eagerly awaited album will be released on 2nd October in Hungary, and England and the rest of the world on 6th October. After the compositions from Life Is A Journey, a 30-minute compilation of best Genesis and Steve Hackett classics can be heard. Of course, Peter Kaszás will be on stage in the second part of the gig, too – the joint performance of two world-renowned drummer augurs unique. This promises to be a real monstre gig with new experiences even for those attended at the June tour. The audience is accustomed to Djabe’s knack for embracing the new and presenting a musical experience even for the most demanding. The gig, starting at 7:30 PM, raises the bar even higher by showing off Djabe’s new line-up, praised nationally and internationally alike. And on top of all it introduces a new kind of album and a new face of the band, with the unique compositions of Life Is A Journey. This album is sure to be a sensation of the year 2017.
The Genesis songs like Firth Of Fifth, In That Quiet Earth és a Fly On A Windshield will close this gig with a hopefully unforgettable experience for our audience.
