4 crew / based in London

Carmen Souza and Theo Pascal are well known for their unique way of printing a roots and organic stamp into Jazz Standards like Song for My Father, Donna Lee, Moonlight Serenade, Cape Verdean Blues, My Favourite Things, etc.
On the Epistola CD (2015) they created compositions that embrace more of their 'jazz' side and they made it to the Jazzahead 2015 official showcase program with the album receiving great reviews all over the world, including UK.
Their love for jazz and the freedom of improvisation have taken their music into more challenging, exiting and surprising routes.
Epistola travelled to 19 Countries over 76 concerts between April 2015 & Dec 2016.
With this JAZZ'O'LOGY TOUR they want to continue to explore the path initiated with the Epistola tour. This is Souza/Pascal jazz sound on display and they don´t intend to explain it, they want you to feel it!
