Representing the sound of the Arabic Ud blended with Latin and modern Jazz flavour is the speciality of our band Trico.
Their intention is to take the listener on a journey through own imagination. The band performs a variety of music consisting of original compositions as well as works by today's maestros and those of the past. The members got different backgrounds. Nazeer is originally from Syria while David is from Spain, this while Menno, Evelyn and Paul are from The Netherlands. All five member currently study at the Conservatorium in Rotterdam. Trico was born when these five musicians with very strong distinctive personalities came together with a unified passion for combining a variety of music from various continents. From the lyricism of the Syrian Ud we go to the Latin-jazz from the piano, and from the rawness of the Jazz Sax to the touch of the Latin and funky bass. None of this would be possible without the afro-cuban rhythm presented by the drums.
