    Combining experience with a no holds barred attitude as improvisers, the trio have been playing on a selection of finest creative music platforms of Europe for the last three years. Sometimes creating an adventurous drift through their distinctive melodies and engaged messages and sometimes throwing you into imaginative sonic solutions, the trio invents new forms of avant-garde songs every single performance. The trio was formed in Berlin in 2018, home to the trio's leader, singer Cansu Tanrikulu. A multimedia artist, composer and improviser, Cansu Tanrikulu describes this band as a pivotal development in her career that helped her shape an organic, diverse and spirited vocal improv style that became her signature quality as a performer. The legendary New York musician John Zorn was full of praise for the trio's trio 2021 debut album “Kantoj de Fermiteco”: “Spooky moods. Powerful playing. Telepathic communication. A beautiful and adventurous collection of surrealistic sonic tableaux by three master musicians.”

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
