Not bound to a single tradition, The Secret Trio performs a collection of original pieces and traditional melodies that fuses the microtonal modes and improvisation of the Middle East, dance beats of the Balkans, and elements of Jazz, Rock, Classical and World music.
While the music of The Secret Trio is mostly rooted in the Middle East, the western concepts of harmony and counterpoint, as well as jazz-like improvisation play a crucial role. This diversity is also represented in the members’ cultural identities. Their music expresses not only the world as they see it, but also the world as they wish it could be. They perform to satisfy their musical dreams, hence the name “Secret Trio,” but welcome those who agree with their vision.
