Stadlander is the new band of Ghent based jazz pianist Stijn Engels, in which Stijn shows his most personal side. This is where his own musical creations take shape and find their way to the outside world, spurred on by his fantastic fellow musicians.

In 2020, this musical exploration resulted in the recording of their debut album "Stadlander," which, with great pride, they can now finally present to the general public. Stadlander takes you on an imaginative journey and tries to resonate with their warm, colorful melodies and harmonies. Lyrical, impressionistic, sometimes exuberantly rhythmic, rooted in the rich jazz tradition where a nod to the blues is never far away.
