In May 2017 released the new album, "Error at the Wagon-bar", on which the Gala takes a new musical direction, giving birth to an alternative band in Sextet, with Ezequiel Celalda on clarinet and Maxime Briard on drums. A second tour is planned in Sri Lanka and new video clips
It’s a pivotal year for the quartet with the arrival of a new band member, two international tours and the preparation of a third album.
In the wake of welcoming new member Tom Valdman in to the group, the band embarks on a Hungarian tour on the occasion of the Festival musique de l’Europe.
In June, the band flies to Sri Lanka and gives a series of six concerts across the island as part of the French Spring Festival organised by the French Alliance.
The Quartet sharpens their repertoire thanks to multiple performances which include :
playing as the opening act for French artist Sanseverino at St Maximin,their first Hungarian tour, Jazz dans le Verdon, Montauroux Guitar Festival, and a joint concert with Clair de Lune Trio.
