On the 8th of November he will be coming to de Doelen to present his newest album Timbre!
"The name TIMBRE arose for two main reasons. The first, perhaps the most obvious, is because first and foremost in this life I am a singer, a performer, and what defines and distinguishes me the most ismy voice, my timbre. The second reason is that I am interested in the concept of timbre as color, the color of the voice, the color of the instruments. The record will be like a colorful palette of timbres that trigger clarity. Ah! And there is a third reason for the name of the album, the word timbre is used in many Latin and Germanic languages. It is spelled the same and means the same. It seems that the concept of TIMBRE is universal, and we all agree on that" - Salvador Sobral
