About

“Wild Strings Trio is definitely one of the most unusual musical groups in Slovenia and is clear proof that music knows no boundaries.” – Bratko Zavrnik, Longplay

“It’s as if they wish to create, from all the various genres, a new, transnational, all-containing one.” – Bratko Zavrnik, Longplay

Wild Strings Trio was born in 2014 in Ljubljana as a collaboration between Slovakian jazz violinist Petra Onderufová, French classical cellist Toby Kuhn, and Slovenian balkan guitarist Aleksander Kuzmić; united by a powerful enthusiasm, a deep commitment to each other, and a shared desire to create a unique sound and a novel style, they have challenged themselves to blend and highlight the various musical genres encountered along their respective ways. Their music, sending roots out into folk music and improvisation, involved arrangements and complex rhythms, has flowered into a powerful, insightful flow which intrigues, touches and delights audiences all over Europe.They enjoy performing in all settings, from the streets to the big stages, art galleries to live bars, sharing their pleasure, dedication and excitement with their public wherever they go. Lost Weekend, recorded in the autumn of 2015, is their first album.

 

 
 

“Trio divjih strun” (Wild strings trio) je nastal leta 2014 v Ljubljani kot plod sodelovanja med slovaško jazz violinistko Petro Onderufovo, francoskim klasičnim čelistom Tobyem Kuhnom in slovenskim etno kitaristom Aleksandrom Kuzmićem. Trio združujejo močan entuziazem, globoka predanost drug drugemu in samemu sebi ter skupna strast ustvarjati unikaten zvok v svojstveni izvedbi. Spoprijeli so se z izzivom mešanja in poudarjanja različnih glasbenih žanrov na poti iskanja sebi lastnega in ustreznega izraza. Od Balkana do keltskih, jazzovskih in klasičnih zvenov s pridihom flamenka, ki poganja korenine v ljudsko glasbeno tradicjo in improvizacijo ter se prepleta okrog progresivnih aranžmajev in kompleksnih ritmov. Njihova glasba navdušuje poslušalce od blizu in daleč. Do sedaj so gostovali po Evropi, pot pa jih je vodila tudi vse do Irana in Uzbekistana. Povsod z enakim ciljem: da delijo svoje navdušenje, predanost in vznemirjenje s prisotnim občinstvom.
