TRIO TRAD brings surprising, personal compositions, makes a detour via Bach or Couperin, to naturally return to the sweetness of a wedding dance from Transylvania. They recognize the essence of that music.
TRIO TRAD, that's 25 years of collaboration. They explored the roads and the stages in Europe, Canada and Africa. They played with internationally renowned artists such as José Van Dam, Bernard Foccroulle, Coope Boys & Simpson, Perry Rose, Jean-Christophe Renault, Jacques Pirotton, Gabriel Yacoub, Steve Houben, Ialma, Laïs, Wannes Van de Velde and of course Panta Rhei.
The trio is characterized by a high musical level, the fun of the game and the musical cross-fertilization.
