What is ASANBA? It is the Swiss Association of Friends of NEOJIBA, founded on June 10, 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland. The Association has encouraged and promoted the exchange between the two countries ever since, facilitating the integration of Brazilian musicians during their stay in Europe and promoting their performances to the public in Geneva. The most recent case of this exchange was the arrival of André-Marc Huwyler, President of the Association, to be Luthier Coordinator of Research of the Plastic Orchestra Project (visit the Plastic Orchestra website to see his statement).
The surprise that ASANBA prepared for our musicians during this tour was a boat trip from the docks of Ouchy to Montreux (Check out all the photos here).
