Elda trio is a project comprised of Swedish award winning vocalist, Emilia Mårtensson, Slovenian accordion player and multi instrumentalist Janez Dovč and Brazilian percussionist and composer, Adriano Adewale. Elda trio weaves together these three different folkloric cultures exploring the breadth and depth of storytelling and music from each country. What emerges is a fascinating tapestry of musical cultures, featuring both traditional and contemporary musical elements in a unique way.
All three musicians of Elda Trio are virtuosos in their own right and they have all found an original voice on their respective instruments. Their technique, the emotion and the depth of their musicianship are of a very high level. The element of improvisation is a fundamental aspect of Elda Trio’s music. It enables the group to express themselves freely taking into consideration the very moment of the performance as well as making every single concert exciting and unique.
Their debut album ‘ELDA’, (released on London based ‘Two Rivers Records’ in September 2016), is celebrating the beauty and importance of exploring and merging cultures and sharing stories that are universally relatable.
“It’s the kind of music that gets every sense involved, leaving you with a stupid grin on your face and bringing goosebumps with every climax, which are both inevitably and organically built up to in each song but also somehow catch you by surprise.”
