Orbit Folks

SIX (Challenge Records)

With Orbit Folks bassist-composer Martijn Vanbuel brings out his own brainchild and at the same time introduces his first album published worldwide by Challenge Records. This ‘global citizen’ lived in Paris, Shanghai and Taipei, and worked at high levels with notables in jazz, pop and world music. In the project Orbit, Folks Martijn combines all of these influences into his own whimsical universe, for which he borrows sounds, rhythms and colors from every corner of the musical world.
