“The Awakenings Ensemble”, is the vehicle for gifted drummer, composer and producer - Michael Pignéguy (pronounced Pin-ay-gee) to venture outside of his original training in the genre of jazz, combining with that, his extended loves of Latin, Arabic & World Music genres.
This process actually begun early new millennium (2004) with the album release by the act called “Salamander” - titled “Adapt”. This critically acclaimed album was shaped around the talents of Pete Jeavons & Nathan Winterflood, with Michael, fusing drum & bass, hip hop, nu-jazz, jazz & world music genres. The Awakenings Ensemble was then originated in 2011, several years after Michael had based himself in Qatar for over a decade (2006-2018), absorbing the global rhythms & cultural influences of his new surroundings.
