BAND BIOGRAPHY An international sextet based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Antares  Flare is making music that is as grounded in earthy rhythms as it is in  sonic journeying. Guitarist Piero Conte, the creative force behind this eclectic setup, is  inspired by the entrancing sounds of the Congo rainforests but also the  electro-psychedelic atmospheres of Jimi Hendrix and Clever Austin. Taking  cues from Jorge Luis Borges and the magical realist movement, he creates  a sound that is rebellious and decidedly modern, interspersed with  moments of profound clarity. Since their inception in 2018 the band have played various festivals and  clubs in the Netherlands and Italy, also being finalists of the 2021 Eras- mus Jazz Prize Competition. Their eponymous debut album was recorded  at Labrstract Studio in Rome and distributed on vinyl by Amsterdam-based  label Wicked Wax in 2022.
