jazz / classical / different

The madcap trio “Rio de Trokkones” is the world's most versatile multipurpose band from Tromsø. The three musicians share over 100 years of combined musical experience, and suffer from lack of genre limitations and other musical etiquette and decency. Repertoire-wise the band is somewhere between old and new jazz, tango, balkan, gypsy music, classical music, opera, folk, varieté, noise, and a somewhat obscure repertoire of Stevie Wonder and folk dance.
