About Us

Trico is a band that presents the sound of the Arabic Ud blended with Latin and modern Jazz flavour. Trico was born when 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 rhythm presented by David, who combines afro-cuban and jazz on the drums. This group's intention is to take the listener on a journey around the globe and through his or her own imagination. Trico performs a variety of music consisting of original compositions as well as works by today's maestros and those of the past.
