Tripataka – CD Launch/Debut

Sun 13th August, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$15 - $20

Tripataka was formed in 2013, comprising of Adrian Sherriff (bass trombone, percussion, voice), Jonathan Dimond  (electric bass guitars, percussion, voice), and  Adam King (drums, voice). As its name implies, the band finds endless inspiration in the music of North and South India, Bali, Brazil, Cuba and many other musics from around the world, performing original compositions by the members, as well as unique arrangements of jazz repertoire. Trained in these intercultural forms as well as jazz and European classical music, the breadth of the band’s combined experience and instrumental resources far surpasses that of a typical contemporary jazz trio. They are launching their debut album, “Yakiya” (on the Tall Poppies label)

“There may be only three musicians on this recording, but their combined sound is as powerful and expressive as a great big band.  Polymetric drum grooves full of deep funky soul; electric bass lines that float like butterflies and sting like bees; trombone melodies singing, soaring, and diving —  Tripataka’s ensemble sound is astringent, tough, and uncompromising — yet the loose authenticity of folk tradition saturates even the most complex pieces.  Composition and improvisation interweave seamlessly, and the total effect is exhilarating  — watch the movie inside your head while you listen, because the cinematography is terrific.” – Warren Senders, Boston, USA, 2017.
