NEW BLOOD is representative of the amalgamation of the recent youth jazz movement in Bandung, Indonesia. Formed in 2017 by friends who often met each other at gigs and jam sessions, New Blood aims to celebrate creative music and break barriers. Though jazz music remains the foundation and starting point, New Blood’s music absorbs influencers and genres that are not conventionally associated with jazz, including Indonesian folk songs. Each member has a distinct style that, while combined, produces a unique blend of sonority.
The group has released its first digital single titled CACA MAURA in March 2018 and is currently working on its debut album to be released in 2019.
