Nik Bärtsch‘s Ronin (www.nikbaertsch.com) – international renown Swiss musicians who produced four albums for ECM records are on tour in Asia in October 2015. With the zen-funk quartet RONIN founded in 2001, Nik Bärtsch proceeds with the work on his RITUAL GROOVE MUSIC together with Kaspar Rast (drums), Thomy Jordi (bass) and Sha (bass/contrabass clarinet). 

Their music consistently follows the same aesthetic vision under various instrumental guises: creating the maximum effect by minimal means.  Despite the multiplicity of the band’s influences, Ronin’s music always possesses a strong individuality. They incorporate elements of disparate musical worlds, be they funk, new classical music or sounds from Japanese ritual music. The music critic Tyran Grillo has written that their music represents some of the most sustainable music on the planet.

During Colloquium and Concert the doors will get closed. So be on time.
