The trio combines various universes: from jazz to latin, from hip-hop to metal. They are also inspired by traditional music such as celtic, balkan, folk …. Amonst the artists who inspire the trio feature Chick Corea, Ibrahim Maallouf, Tigran Hamasyan, Robert Glasper, and Sigur Ross, just to name a few.
