On 16th March 2016, Force played a special concert extended with Orchestre Estro Armonico, a 16-piece string ensemble, performing an evening full of original music in a subtle orchestral setting. The band entered the studio again in October 2016 with special guests Riaz Khabirpour on guitar and the string from Kaiser Quartett, focusing on the making of their second album Creation/Evolution, which was released 31st March 2017 on Double Moon/Challenge Records. In November 2017, they won “Best Band” award at the Sibiu Jazz Competition, Romania. Currently preparing their newest album Organic Machines, scheduled for release by French label Cristal Records in autumn 2019, Pol Belardi’s Force are extensively playing and touring, always eager to see where music brings them next.
