John Dikeman - tenor saxophone
ACA - drums
Dikeman/ACA duo have been performing together across Europe for the last few years. The two found instant synergy, sharing what could be called a "spiritual" approach to music, for lack of a better term. John Dikeman, originally from the states, has been based in Amsterdam for over 10 years. A member of the Dutch collective Doek, John has become increasingly active throughout Europe as well as frequently touring the USA. He is a member of the bands Cactus Truck, Dikeman/Parker/Drake, Universal Indians, Spinifex, and more.
ACA is a mysterious young musician who has exploded onto the European scene. A performer that can seem possessed, he is none-the-less an excellent listener of great sensitivity. In short, an ideal partner for Dikeman. Between the two, the list of collaborators includes such luminaries as William Parker, Hamid Drake, Charles Gayle, Joe McPhee, Jeb Bishop, Shabaka Hutchings, John Edwards, Steve Noble, Christian Lillinger, Mike Reed, Jamie Branch, Luke Stewart, Jameszoo, etc...
