Trio Populaire

Acoustic - Instrumental - World Jazz
From Montréal, Quebec

BIO

 

Since February, 2010, this young and promising trio offers nothing less than a meeting in Montreal of the three shores of the Mediterranean. Europe, North-Africa and Middle-East gather together for a unique repertoire. Mixing klezmer melodies, berber and flamenco rhythms, Trio Populaire still keeps room for original compositions and improvisation.

This acoustic group bands together three musicians: Tacfarinas Kichou, “the golden-fingered derbouki”, fuses the strength of Africa and the magic of the East in his percussion; Pierre-Emmanuel Poizat, “the hurricane clarinetist”, makes his clarinet weep in a wild embrace; finally, Joey “machine gun” Mallat sets his guitar on fire with boisterous strumming.

Six tracks of handmade (and mouth-made) music bear witness to the work accomplished by the three accomplices.

From now on, it’s up to you to make this Trio Populaire a VERY popular trio!
