Is Trilok Gurtu the best rhythm machine in the world? No, he is much more: the grooves flutter out of his inexhaustible percussion instruments like a swarm of swallows, playful virtuosity and musical curiosity fraternise: precision in perfection! He stands for the combination of jazz and (not only Indian) world music. For many years, he has been responsible for the more exciting moments in Jan Garbarek's concerts, among other things.
With Florian Weber and Fredrik Köster he has terrific trio partners: both are band leaders themselves and belong to the absolute top on their instruments. Weber was part of Lee Konitz's quartet for a long time and won the "Echo" as best instrumentalist in 2013. Köster has caused a sensation above all with his ensemble "Die Verwandlung" and was honoured with the "New German Jazz Award". He has been on stage with Gurtu since 2013.
Trilok Gurtu, Florian Weber and Frederik Köster form a highly exciting trio that throws lightning-bright musical ideas around.
