By Seán Carpio
A sextet led by Irish drummer/composer Seán Carpio featuring his friends from far away places. One night of Jazz featuring the newest music composed for this band as part of a commission for Project Arts Centre.
Seán’s instrumental songwriting process is influenced heavily by the musicians he invites to be a part of this project. The different personalities and nationalities in the band generate a real sense of energy and creativity. Generally described as melodic post rock, WoWos play songs that are always emotive but alternate between being energetic and serene.
