Paardcafé: Melqui & Tamarae

Melqui is a new Amsterdam-based band led by Argentinian composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lautaro “Lau” Hochman. Lautaro formed the band while studying at the Amsterdam Conservatory with an eclectic bunch from Brazil (Gabriel de Oliveira), The Netherlands (Siebren Smink), the US (Sara Tompkins), Spain (Aniol Torrents), and Israel (Chen Har-Even)

The previous experience of Melqui’s band members in Jazz, Free-improv, Classical music, and Pop provides the group with a unique approach to songwriting, arrangement, and production. Melqui led up to their first release with a series of concerts in the Netherlands and an EP release show in the Bovenzaal of Paradiso Amsterdam.  The 6-piece band marks its debut with a wistful kiss of a song. “Amarla,” via Bloomer Records, is the opening track for Melqui’s Debut EP, Melqui. They are curretly working on their first Album
