Bio

The trio, rooted in the process of creation and improvisation, unites musicians from three different backgrounds. Feeding on structures, tones and colours, and above all on a flawless mutual feeling of each other’s musics, they explore modal musics, indian, reggae, jazz, african, latin musics,..blending them in a common construction.
Amrat Hussain on tablas, Yves Perrin on guitar and Gregory Jouhandon on drums and percussions play on the principle of raga, and meet around a form of jazz with endlessly evolving codes.
The trio is blessed with the joy of discovering and the instantaneous enthusiasm of inventing together, taken by the energies of both young and ancient musics.
They create a music of transe in which the bass tabla (from in Mrdangam tradition) gives low and distant sounds, in which the tabla engages with the drums in what resembles a game of “talking drums” while the guitar brings in a complex melodic and mesmerizing tempo.

Transient outbreaks of voices and of the jew’s harp (from the Gypsy traditions of Rajasthan) give yet new dimensions to this special, tenacious while fleeting, exhilarating and dreamlike music, in its fearless approach of a new continent.
