Subconscious Trio

Italy, Bulgaria, and Taiwan, if it’s not of jazz, they would never know each other. Cross over the boundary, they combine their different music tastes, habits and thoughts, and transformed them bravely into Subconscious Trio’s unique sound. You may call it some kind of big mixture of jazz generes, but more precisely it’s an interesting positive jazz compromise. The proposed program will be their own original tunes and some re-arranged standards, already performed in festivals like JAZZMI 2019 and Mantova Jazz 2019. 

Components of the group:

The spirit of Subconscious Trio is based on “tracing the colorful sounds by conscious” and “performingthe sounds that appear in our subconscious”. Three girls are bound by each different particularcharacters and sensitivity to represent themselves by voice, piano, double bass and drums.
